Last night hubby and I attended our first “rawluck” raw food potluck. I wanted to create something fun, easy and tasty. I also didn’t want to use any oil or Braggs. With a few raw ingredients and my trusty food processor, here’s what I came up with.
Spicy Raw Vegan Cashew Lettuce Wraps
10 baby carrots
1 cup raw cashews
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro
2 green onions
1 clove garlic
Juice of 1 fresh lime
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 – 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper or nanami togarashi (Japanese dried chili pepper blend)
2 heads romaine lettuce
Shred carrots in food processor, set aside
Combine all other ingredients above except for carrots, romaine lettuce and a few springs of fresh cilantro for garnish. Blend in food processor until smooth (cookie dough consistency). Spoon a little mixture and spread along the middle of each romaine leaf, top with shredded carrots and cilantro.
