Guest Post: Vegan Lettuce Wraps

Hey there! I am Larissa from consciouslifestyleofmine. On my blog I share plant based recipes, my personal style, reviews on organic cosmetics and thoughts about my journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle. I am super excited to be here on Almost Stylish today and I brought with me a versatile summer recipe – lettuce wraps. I looooove lettuce wraps and I have them almost every day during the summer months. We all know that salad and greens are a must when eating a healthy diet, but, to be honest, I am not a huge fan of salad bowls and big green salads. However, I love to put whatever I eat into some lettuce leaves and wrap it : )



In this recipe here I am using green spelt for my wraps but you can easily exchange that with couscous, quinoa, rice, buckwheat, bulgur, or even noodles or (sweet)potatoes. So here is what you need for 2-3 people: 1 big head of lettuce, 200g green spelt (or couscous, rice, bulgur…), 100g corn, 200g chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned), coriander, cumin, sweet pepper powder, chili pepper and salt, 2-3 carrots



For the avocado sauce: 1 avocado, 200g vegan yogurt, 1 lemon pepper and salt, hot sauce to taste. Boil the green spelt (or whatever grain you are using).  While your grains are getting ready, you can mix up the avocado with the yogurt and the juice of the lemon (in case you are not a huge fan of lemon try to use the juice of half a lemon first, and then add more to taste) in a blender or with a fork. Grate the carrots or shred for a few seconds in your high speed blender. When your grains are ready, add the spices (a knife tip of each of them), the corn and the tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Now look for the biggest and most beautiful leaves of lettuce and wash those carefully. Add a little bit of your grains on each leaf, put some avocado sauce on top, and a few shredded carrots on top of the sauce. You can sprinkle some hot sauce over the carrots if you prefer it very spicy. Now just fold the wrap the way you would fold a normal bread-wrap. You can either eat the lettuce wrap right away or you can use some toothpicks to make sure it holds.



That’s it! Such an easy and delicious way to eat salad, isn’t it? I hope you enjoyed this recipe and I am sending loads of love to all of you : )
