Lettuce Wraps

We've been enjoying out lettuce harvest direct from the garden over the last few weeks. Normally we're not lettuce-y people - sticking more to spinach and arugula, but I fancied trying my hand at growing a variety of things this summer and heads of lettuce was one of them.

Of course that meant we had to come up with some new ways to enjoy it....
Lettuce Wraps Recipe
1 tsp sesame oil
1-2 green onions, chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1/2" slice of ginger, finely chopped
350g minced chicken breast
1/2 red pepper chopped
100g water chesnuts, chopped
1 stick celery, chopped
1 tbsp soy/tameri sauce
Chopped peanuts
Thai Style Peanut sauce (I used Gluten free San-J  brand)
  • Heat oil in the pan and lightly fry onions, garlic and ginger. Add chicken and cook till browned, constantly bashing to break up as much as possible.
  • Empty mixture onto plate and set aside.
  • Add peppers, water chesnuts and celery to pan and lightly fry (heat through rather than cook till soft!), add the soy sauce.
  • Add back in the chicken and mix, together with the peanut sauce.
Serve into lettuce leaves, top with shredded carrot and chopped peanuts.
Serves 2 (about 6 lettuce wraps)
