Day 61 – Lettuce Burritos

I really need to start seriously eating the lettuce growing in my garden… OK I planted too much in the first place – being the novice gardener that I am and then I also did not thin out the seedlings as they were growing… result – a lot of small leaf lettuce plants.


The rest of the family are having chicken burritos – but I am having these raw lettuce burritos.  You are supposed to use large lettuce leaves, but I am not going to head out to the shops to buy large lettuce, when I have a pile of ‘lettuce mignonette’ with small soft buttery leaves.

Serves 2


2 ripe avocados

2 tomatoes, diced

1/2 chilli pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup red onion, diced

2 cloves crushed garlic

1/4 cup coriander

the kernels from 1 ear of raw corn

2 Tsp. fresh lime juice



Mash the avocado and add the remaining ingredients.

Spread onto lettuce leaves, wrap and eat!  Or in my case, just eat like an open burrito.

Is a very tasty and filling recipe!
