Easy Guacamole Lettuce Wraps (Raw, Vegan, Paleo)

Happy Thursday, or day before Friday!

I was looking for something to do with some ripe avocados, but didn’t want to make another pesto. So I thought, why not try guacamole with some raw veggies? Sounds bland, right? Not necessarily. I found a wonderfully simple recipe for guacamole on The Rawtarian. The recipe can be found here. I used basically the same recipe, but I didn’t use hard measurements, but something like this:

Guacamole Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients for the guacamole:

  • 1 part avocado (plus another part diced avocado reserved)
  • 1 part tomato (with the seeds taken out)
  • 1/4 part sweet onion
  • 1/4 part cilantro
  • 1 squeeze of a lemon
  • 1 pinch of salt

Note: What I mean by one part, is that if you use 1/4 cup avocado, then the reserve 1/4 cup avocado, use 1/4 cup tomatoes, 1/8 cup onion, etc.

Instructions:

  • Use a fork or food processor to process 1 part avocado until smooth.
  • Add in the other part avocado.
  • Cut the tomatoes, cilantro and sweet onion (rough dice).
  • Add in the tomatoes, cilantro and sweet onion to the avocado mixture and fold in with spoon.
  • Add in the lemon juice and salt and mix.

Constructing the lettuce wrap:

  • Use 2 romaine leaves for each wrap.
  • Julienne 1/4 zucchini.
  • Thinly slice 3 small mushrooms (I used cremini mushrooms).
  • Add the zucchini and mushrooms on the romaine lettuce.
  • Add the guacamole on top.
  • Enjoy!
