Sesame Noodle Cups

March, 2020

Warm noodles, crunchy add-ins all wrapped up in a butter lettuce leaf cup. A great portable meal when you are on the go!

1 c. grated carrots

1 red pepper, thin slivers

½ c. edamame, cooked

1 tbsp. cilantro, chopped

1 head of butter lettuce (may not use it all)

⅔ c. chopped peanuts, unsalted and divided

2 tbsp. warm water

2 tbsp. rice vinegar

2 tbsp. grated ginger

zest of ½ lime

1 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tbsp. avocado oil

1 tsp. sesame oil

pinch of chili flakes

½ pkg. of whole wheat spaghettini, cooked

In a blender combine half of the peanuts, water, rice vinegar, ginger, lime zest, brown sugar, avocado oil, sesame oil and chili flakes. Blend until combined. The peanuts will leave this dressing on the crunchy side!

In a large bowl, mix the carrots, pepper, edamame and cilantro. Add in the warm noodles and dress the salad. Put a scoop of salad in each lettuce cup, roll up and enjoy!

This also works if the noodles are room temperature so great for a busy, activity filled night.
