Savory Apricot Lettuce Wraps

Savory Apricot Lettuce Wraps

It’s hot.

I think the whole country can agree, it’s ridiculously hot this summer.

Beyond feeling cranky and lethargic, this weather makes me really, really not want to cook.

Or spend time in the kitchen.

Or do anything that might raise my body temp above meditative.

But there are really only so many popsicles and frozen berries a person can eat before the body starts to demand something more…substantial.


These lettuce wraps are just that.Made with riced cauliflower, dried apricots, and crunchy, creamy pine nuts, they taste hearty and satisfying, but come together quickly and without using any heat.



I prefer to wrap them up into crisp lettuce leaves, but you can also try rolling them into Rice Paper Wrappers:

(if you’ve got a knack for it, which I clearly don’t)


You could also try these great Turmeric Coconut Wraps I’ve just discovered. They’re so delicious, I ate them all before I got a picture, so check them out on Amazon:

Or you could also just munch on it right out of the bowl.



Like I said, minimal effort wins points here!

Stay cool, Makers!
