If you’re looking for a quick and easy lunch or appetizer, that’s also totally satisfying, than these Vegan Green Goddess Mexican Lettuce Wraps are for you! Because it doesn’t get much easier than throwing four ingredients + spices/seasonings in a food processor then baking 20-25 minutes.
Green Goddess Mexican Lettuce Wraps [Vegan]
- 3 large carrots
- 1 1/2 cup cauliflower
- 1/2 large sweet onion diced
- 1 cup raw pecan halves
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle seasoning
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 12 Butter or Bibb lettuce leaves
- 1 medium avocado cubed
- Fresh chopped Cilantro
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Add carrots, cauliflower, sweet onion, pecan halves, garlic cloves and all seasonings to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse all ingredients until the mixture is evenly ground yet still has some smaller chunks, approximately 10-15 seconds.
Transfer vegan taco "meat" to a greased baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Bake for 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent over-browning. You want the carrots and cauliflower to be cooked but not mushy, leaving it with a slightly crunchy texture.
Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then divide evenly among 12 lettuce leaves, approximately 1/4 cup mixture for each lettuce leaf.
Top with avocado and cilantro then serve! Enjoy!
