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.
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!
