Lettuce wraps? Underrated. Sure, they’re a healthier option than a carb-y tortilla, but they’re also crisp, cool and refreshing. Food blogger Alex Snodgrass of The Defined Dish, author of the new cookbook The Defined Dish: Healthy and Wholesome Weeknight Recipes, is in agreement. Her oven-baked chicken kofta wraps are going on our short list.
“Kofta is a Middle Eastern dish,” she explains, “made from ground lamb or beef mixed with warm spices like paprika, cumin, allspice and cinnamon. The mixture is shaped into balls or patties, grilled and served with pita salads, dips and sauces.” They’re typically skewered and cooked on a grill, but it can be tricky getting them to hold together, so Snodgrass developed her recipe to be baked in the oven to make it practically foolproof.
“I love serving mine in lettuce cups filled with cucumbers, tomatoes and a delicious lemon-garlic aioli,” she continues.
Oh, and we should mention: They’re gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, paleo, Whole30 and, most important, delicious.
