I’ve seen lettuce leaves used as ‘tacos’ before in recipes and after trying it in a recipe fell in love! You’ll need to use ‘strong’ lettuce leaves though and I personally love baby gem lettuce.
This recipe is high in protein (thanks to the beef and beans) and with the lettuce leaves tastes incredible. The textures go really well together and overall the dish is really light and refreshing.
I actually served this recipe with homemade sweet potato wedges & an avocado ‘super-food’ salad with salsa & mayo on the side – it was a huge hit with my friends, however you could also serve the mince with ‘real tacos’ for a Mexican feast :).
A big thank you to Protein Dynamix who asked me to create this recipe, and for giving me a cheeky discount code for 20% off their amazing range – NIC20 (I love their vanilla ice cream & chocolate brownie whey protein and the strawberry protein mousse!).
*To make sweet potato wedges simply slice your sweet potatoes into wedges, coat in olive oil, salt & paprika and bake in the oven on a baking tray for 40 minutes.
