Cilantro Radish Lettuce Wraps

It was great seeing so many members on Thursday (June 3) and it was even better sharing the first sample of the season. The following recipe is how I made the dish, but it really is just a jumping off point for your own creativity… or simply another way to use whatever you happen have in your pantry to supplement your produce share.

Recipe inspired by the blog Sprouted Kitchen


Ingredients:

2 c radishes, sliced small

1/2 c roughly chopped cilantro

15 oz can of beans, drained (any kind, I used Great Northern)

4.5 oz can chopped green chiles (or 1/4 cup fresh chiles)

1 tsp lemon juice

2 tsp olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

1 head of Butterleaf lettuce
Preparation:

1. Mix all ingredients excpet the lettuce together in a large bowl.

2. Separate the lettuce leaves from the head, then wash and dry them in a salad spinner or by blotting with a towel

3. Spoon the mixture into a lettuce leaf, wrap and enjoy! The filling may get all over your hands, but that’s part of the fun of eating summer food!
