Beet-Red Lettuce Wraps

Beet-Red Lettuce Wraps
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.


Phil and I like to eat with our hands sometimes, and lettuce wraps are one of our favorite forkless meals. This lettuce wrap is filled with a red lentil dip mixed with grated carrots and beets (the beets were steamed first) and sprinkled with toasted coconut.

The beets of course turned the whole dip red, but as I was mixing it in, it looked really pretty with the bright orange and red. It reminded me of confetti or something.

I love having bean dips on hand, because they let me whip together a really quick, tasty and filling lunch. I also love adding vegetables to bean dips to make them lighter and add lots of nutrients.

Red Lentil Dip

  • 1/2 cup red lentils
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp sunflower seed butter or tahini
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • salt to taste

I get a constant stream of questions about what I eat during the day, and what ideas I have for healthy meals. Now, in case you haven’t seen it, I do have a whole other site full of healthy vegan recipes.

The foods I make in those videos are actually what I eat on a regular basis, and I make them in lots of different variations. I’m going to start posting once a week with an idea of how I’ve made a variation to create a whole new meal.

I hope you guys like these new posts! Let me know what you think below 🙂
