I had these for breakfast the other day, but they’re also great for lunch or dinner – whenever you feel like having them.
They’re romaine lettuce leaves used as wraps. I love eating wraps, but I don’t like the amount of bread one often eats when making regular wraps, so when I heard about using romaine leaves instead of bread I got really excited! You can stuff them with pretty much everything. I had them with meatballs and bell peppers, chicken and hummus, egg salad, tuna salad – you name it!
The ones on the picture have boiled chicken, guacamole (made from 1 avocado, lemon juice from ½ lemon and a bit of onion) and grilled aubergine. Yum! With a side of blueberries for dessert.
I’m having some trouble with my right leg right at the hip joint, after a 10.2 km run saturday, so I’m taking it slow these days. It hurts, but I can walk and it seems to be getting better upon walking slowly, so today I’m going to take a nice walk instead of running. I tried doing some crunches last night, but that hurts, so no Jillan Michaels for me today!
As I’m currently working from home, I have the privilege of being able to cook for lunch every day, which I absolutely love!
I had some leftover rice that had to be centerpiece of my lunch today, so while the caramel is cooking, I decided to make some vegetable sauce to go with the rice.
Garlic, onion, carrot, chili and spring onion goes in a pan with olive oil
Add some beautiful fresh tomatoes cut into smaller pieces, along with a can of chopped tomatoes and some salt, and boil for 10 minutes with the lid on.
When boiled add some fresh basil, some fresh spinach and some dried oregano. Season to taste with pepper and salt. Pour on a plate, top with the heap of brown rice (I think I had 0.75 dl of boiled rice) and grate a bit of gouda cheese over. Voila!
Eat and enjoy, but remember to keep some room for the caramels – I’m posting the recipe later!
