Thai Noodle Lettuce Wraps (Vegan)




As I spent today making a What I Eat in a Day video for my Youtube Channel (probably going to be next Thursdays video!) I thought I’d quickly write up one of my favourite lunchtime recipes right now. While I'm not the most seasonal of eater (this is such a summer meal!) there are two things you probably need to know about the food I eat if you didn’t know. I like Asian flavours and I eat a plant based. So these lettuce wraps are right up my street!

This recipe is actually a variation of one I used to eat when I ate meat based on this Thai Beef Salad recipe I saw on the Londoner years ago. I'm omitting the meat and adding rice wine vinegar instead of fish sauce which creates an authentic asian flavour but vegan friendly.  I make my version of Thai dressing all the time to pour over things like Broccoli and Pak Choi. It's delicious!

They also only take about 10 minutes to make and most of that time is the noodles cooking. These  are also low calorie and for a portion of lettuce wraps it comes in at about 230 calories. Plus they are a really tasty quick to make for lunch. I tend to make 2/3 portions of the salad mix and the noodles as they both last a few days in the fridge! Let me know if you make these and what you think of them!

Ingredients

For the Sauce
1tsp of Rice Wine Vinegar
2tsp of Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 or 2 Cloves of crushed Garlic
1tsp Agave Nectar or Sugar 
Juice of 1 Lime
Chilli (fresh or dried) if desired

For the Salad
Half a Cucumber
1-2 Large Tomatoes
Half a Red Onion
3 Spring Onions
1 Stick of Lemongrass

Rice Noodles  (75g per portion)
Iceberg Lettuce

  1. Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl, mix and set aside.
  2. Cook noodles as per instructions of the packet and then drain. Dunk the noodles in cold water to remove starch and cool them down quickly.
  3. While the noodles are cooking chop up all your salad ingredients into small pieces. They don't need to be precise just bitesize! Pour over the salad dressing and mix. It's ready to eat straight away but leaving it a hour to marinate will help the flavours infuse.
  4. Tear off leaves of Iceberg lettuce into large pieces suitable for wrapping.
  5. Then you just pop a scoop of the noodles and a bit of the salad mix and roll it up like a wrap and then eat! If you wanted to you could keep some of the dressing aside to use as a dipping sauce.

  30. After being in relationship with brain adams for three years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr happy and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before two days, that my ex will return to me before two days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 2pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: happylovespell2@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

  32. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging.

  34. God what a Gift from Dr happy, my name is Vicky Robinson . since 2 months I have witness what is called heart broken. my boyfriend that promised me marriage failed me and impregnate me and leave,he dump me,he stop calling" he stop picking my calls,and he no longer respond to me. I have be looking for solution,I fall into the hands of fake spell caster,they rough me off and took my money without help.I have cried,I have weep"and tears runs out of eyes. The silentness in my heart brought me to the deepest path of failure that I lost my job. Crying all day,because of my life was lonely. So thanks to happy that came into my life and brought me the greatest joy that was lost. I saw his mail while browsing and I contact and tell him what I am passing through with no doubt because what saw about him,was enough to believe. And I was given words of solution on what to do. I can't really help thinking about it I have tried to see what I can do, I manage to provide him some materials and he help me with the rest,after casting the spell, 2days after he came with rose on his hand and I was even about going out,i saw him in front of my door when he sees me he knee and said he is dying I should forgive him and accept him back he was crying,I can't wait to let him finish I quickly crab him and kiss him, just then" he said he is restless without me, just as the Dr has said he will be. He brought out a ring and put it on my hand. Our wedding day was scheduled,2week after we got married. today makes it 1 month and we are living happily I don't know how to praise him enough, he has done me a thing I can never forget. And I can't really share to myself alone, I want y'all to help me praise him because if it is wasn't for him I already plan of committing suicide. But right now I am now so happy more than I was before. And you out there crying for help you've already got one, Dr happy is the man that you need in all rampart. contact his address if you need his service, happylovespell2@gmail.com

  38. Shocking amazing testimony by Tom Bush

    O.M.G!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF JUNE 2015, And i saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called Baba Agba on the forum..I never believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about spells before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until Baba Agba did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my wife back to me in just 17hours just as i read on the internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my wife knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept her back.. I am really short of expressions, and i don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you Baba Agba you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. And now i am a joyful man once again.. here is his Email: babaagbasolutiontemple@gmail.com OR CALL +2347064348663....Tom Bush from England(UK)....
