This romaine sandwich pockets recipe is a low carb, gluten free treat. You lose the bread of a traditional sandwich and use healthy romaine leaves instead. Even if you are not into a raw food diet, you still get a tasty lunch that is full of flavor and nutrients.
- 1/4 cup Red Onion (chopped)
- 1 Medium Carrot
- 1 can Northern Beans
- 2 tablespoons Vegan Mayo
- 1/2 teaspoon Dulse Powder
- 1 tablespoon Mustard
- 2 teaspoons Sweet Relish
- 1/2 teaspoon Tumeric
- 6 leaves Romaine Lettuce
| Step 1.||Rinse Beans in a colander until the can residue is washed away.|
| Step 2.||In a food processor (“S” blade), pulse the onions about 10 times or until they are finely chopped.|
| Step 3.||Shred the carrot using the food processor or with a hand shredder.|
| Step 4.||Add all of the remaining ingredients to the food processor, except the lettuce leaves. Using the “S” blade pulse about 10-15 times. You want the mixture to be blended, but not too much. Your goal is to have the onion and carrot remain crunchy.|
| Step 5.||Spoon about 3 tablespoons of the mixture onto one end of each leaf and roll, making sure to tuck in each side when you get to the end of the leaf. Lightly squeeze each wrap so they end up looking like cigars.|
