Raw Food "Burrito" Recipe

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (5 Reviews)

Raw Food

Raw lettuce wraps. Thanks for your help on this, Tua!

These raw food diet lettuce wraps have a hint of Mexican spiciness to them, hence the "burrito" simile. These wraps make a great entree for a raw food meal or a raw food potluck, and, because they're so easy and tasty, they're a great raw transitional food too. They're naturally gluten-free, of course.

This was amazing!, Guest Lauren Brown

I've only just started incorporating more raw foods in to my diet as of today/yesterday, and even though I'm adjusting to the different diet, I absolutely loved this! I took advice from a previous review by Manda and added 2/3 cup rice, steamed, 1/2 a capsicum (bell pepper) and only used 2 cloves of garlic. I also used 1/4 lemon instead of lime and only had 1 avocado, but i thought it was enough for the meal. Me and my partner shared this between us, but I would say it would still be filling enough for 3 people. I would definitely recommend this to others, it was absolutely delicious, and so fresh!
