I love anything spicy and fusion and Asian is a favorite of mine. I think it is mostly because I love the explosion of flavours in my mouth – sweet, sour, salty, spicy, bitter – it is party in the mouth, simply and I love that!
We have always been big fans of lettuce wraps the traditional way – but this healthy version is now the preferred version – it tastes incredible and it makes you feel nourished and energized after eating it. It is really easy to make and even the kids love it – also works as a healthy snack.
I use organic Romaine lettuce for wraps and I fill them with what ever vegetable takes my fancy. Today it was snap peas, cucumber, red pepper, yellow pepper, zucchini sliced into Julienne strips and arranged on the lettuce. I added some fresh cilantro on top.
For the dressing/dipping
2 tablespoons of Hoisin sauce,
2 tablespoons of soya sauce
2 tablespoons of white wine,
A fresh squeeze of lime
1 table-spoon of sweet chili sauce
2 small teaspoons of cane sugar
1 table-spoon of finely chopped fresh ginger
1 tablespoon of finely chopped fresh garlic
1 table-spoon of chopped green onions
Mix it all together and use it as a dipping sauce.
Wrap the lettuce around the filling and dip into the sauce for a mouth-watering experience.
