A relatively quick and healthy dinner that has now become a bit of a favourite in our house. It keeps the kids happy (they love the idea of wrapping food in lettuce…and the reference to tacos which they seem to love for some reason), and it meets our high protein/low carb requirements for an evening meal. I don’t think anyone misses the cardboard-like taco shells. And there is something rather nice about folding and holding the food nice and snug in your hand as you eat it!
I made lamb mince with the same sort of spices and method I used in my “middle eastern inspired dish with no name”. This time I added in the kernels from a cob of corn, some sliced garlic shoots, sliced asparagus, a can of butter beans and lots of parsley and coriander leaves. The garlic shoots were quite interesting – added crunch and a definite garlic taste.
The kids added diced tomatoes and grated cheese to their lettuce wraps and we stuck to the tomatoes and gave the high fat cheese a bit of a miss.
