Lettuce Wraps.jpg

This is a versatile recipe where you can use up leftovers from your fridge or whatever vegetables you have on hand. Iceberg lettuce or cos lettuce leaves work well for the wrap

1 cos lettuce washed, remove thick stems 
Leftover cooked chicken, ham, bacon
1 ripe avocado sliced
2 tomatoes sliced
½ cup roasted capsicums drained
1 cucumber thinly sliced
½ cup sprouts
Smokey almond hummus:
½ c ground almonds
1 Tbsp tahini
½ tsp smoked paprika
1 clove garlic crushed
¼ c water
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of half a lemon
2-3 sun-dried tomatoes in oil finely chopped

To make the hummus combine the ingredients together to make a thick paste using half the water initially then add a little more water to make it more spreadable if needed as the almonds soak up a lot.

Lay a sheet of baking paper on your board and arrange lettuce leaves overlapping if they are not large. Spread a layer of almond hummus or a good quality mayo over the leaves leaving a good border free for wrapping. Add the cooked chicken or ham and vegetables down the middle of the leaves. Using the baking paper roll the leaf wrap up tightly and secure with toothpicks or string to hold tight. Cut in half and enjoy.
