What do you do when you need a delicious yet light meal on a hot Summer’s day/evening? Brocolli leaf wraps of course. I discovered these leaves by chance actually while doing my shopping at the local Checkers store. They come in a bag with some kale leaves. I took the plunge and decided to try them with some scrambled eggs one day and I was sold. THEN, the genius idea hit me and I thought let me try the brocolli leaves as wraps. Why not? They are ‘almost’ big enough so I guess you could also call them brocolli tacos lol. I used left over lamb that I made using my Spicy Lamb Marinade .
Makes 4 wraps
4 Brocolli Leaves
3 lamb ribs, deboned and chopped
0.5 onion finely chopped
4 Tablespoons of plain yoghurt or greek yoghurt
4 Tablespoons of fried cauli rice (herbed and spiced as you please or lightly salted with some himalayan salt and pepper)
1 Avocado (skinned, pip scooped out and thinly sliced)
15 Minutes Preparation
Place the brocolli leaves in some hot water for 3 minutes in order to soften them or leave them as is if you prefer them crunchy. Take one leave and place a tablespoon of rice, a little bit of avocado, a little bit of lamb ribs, onion and a tablespoon of yoghurt. Secure with toothpicks. Do the same with the rest of the brocolli leaves. You could also do this with blanched cabbage leaves, swiss chard, lettuce or whatever leaf you fancy the most. But let me just say, that the brocolli leaves are by far the most filling ;-).
Get creative and enjoy!
