Vegan lettuce cups


Vegan lettuce cups:

Ingredient list:

1/2 C shredded carrots

1 shallot sliced thinly 

1 c red wine vinegar

1 c white wine vinegar

1 tbsp agave

1 tbsp coriander 

1 tbsp ginger powder

1 tsp red pepper flake

1 bell pepper sliced

1/2 English cucumber chopped

1 head of Bibb lettuce cleaned and stems removed 

1 avocado sliced

2 tomatoes chopped

Fresh herbs (I used sage, thyme and basil from my garden, use whatever you have on hand)

1 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar (alternatively add honey to regular balsamic)

1 hot pepper sliced thinly (optional)

Method:

In a small saucepan combine vinegar, agave, coriander, ginger and red pepper flakes 

Bring to a boil, reduce and let simmer for a few minutes while you prepare the carrots and shallot. 

Place carrots and shallot in a large bowl, pour hot liquid over them to do a quick pickle. Set aside while you prepare other vegetables

In a food processor combine carrot mixture (with excess moisture removed), bell pepper and cucumber. Pulse a few times until roughly combined

In a small bowl combines chopped tomatoes, herbs, pepper and balsamic 

To make cup: take lettuce cup, add carrot mixture, add avocado and top with tomato mixture. 

  • Enjoy!
