Allergy free and vegan bento box

Delicious roasted brussels sprouts and grain-free cookies!

Last week, our guest blogger The Allergy Chef gave us this delicious veggie stuffed pork and grain-free rice recipe. In part two of her allergy-friendly recipes, she has shown us how to make a completely allergy free, vegan bento box, filled with roasted brussels sprouts with apples and grain-free maple cookies!

Here’s how you can make it too:

  • 3 tablespoons organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3.75 ounces organic purple onion, diced
  • 5.5 ounces brussels sprouts, shredded
  • 2 medium organic Fuji apples, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 - 5 tablespoons Hilary’s Organic Beet Vinaigrette

Start by washing and cubing your apples. For this recipe, we used store-bought, pre-shredded, brussels sprouts. You could certainly do this step at home, but I wouldn't suggest using frozen brussels sprouts. Heat a large non-stick pan on medium-high heat and add your oil. Once hot, add the onion, brussels sprouts and apples. Cook for 12 - 15 minutes, stirring regularly, then add the salt and sauce. Continue to cook for an additional 3 - 5 minutes. That's it! Easy, right?

For Paleo, GAPs, AIP, & SCD: Use an allowed sauce, such as KC Naturals AIP Sauce or a homemade sauce you enjoy.

For the cookies:

  • 230g Otto's Cassava Flour
  • ⅓ cup Shady Maple Farms Organic Maple Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon + pinch Celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic ground vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 10 tablespoons water

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a stand mixer, using your paddle attachment, combine all of the ingredients. Make cookie balls between 1 - 1.5 teaspoons in size (smaller than a small cookie dough scooper). Roll into balls, and place on a baking tray lined with parchment. Bake for 11 minutes.

We served this alongside organic pineapple spears, organic blackberries and organic seaweed for a healthy, colorful meal!

A note about the cookies - they are not GAPs and SCD compatible. For AIP, use a safe vanilla extract (ground vanilla (bean) is not AIP legal). These particular cookies were also seed and corn free.
