Recipe: Cabbage Lettuce Wraps

Serves 6 as a side dish / Prep time: 15 minutes

The ginger and turmeric dress up the basic cabbage and carrot slaw and make for a very simple and satisfying lettuce wrap. Interestingly, this salad also makes a great veggie addition to fruit smoothies!

  • 1 1/2 cups green cabbage, minced
  • 2 cups carrot, shredded
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 3 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 1/2 T coconut oil
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp white sugar or honey (optional)
  • 6 large lettuce leaves

In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, carrots, lemon juice and ginger. On medium heat, dissolve the turmeric and sugar in the coconut oil for about 30 seconds. Do not boil. Add the coconut oil mixture to the salad and combine well. Fill lettuce leaves with about a half of a cup of the salad. Serve at room temperature.
