Lettuce Wraps with Avocado and Herbs

This is a kidney-friendly version of the traditional salad wrap. Using lettuce leaves instead of processed breads means that the fresh herbs and spices really stand out.

Ingredients:

  • 6 large Romaine lettuce leaves
  • 3 avocados, must be ripe
  • 2 soft Roma tomatoes, cut into small chunks
  • one lime
  • small red onion, cut into small chunks
  • small fresh red chili
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander black pepper
  • Celtic sea salt
  • ½ cup crushed walnuts

Directions:

  1. Cut the avocados and mash them with a fork. Cut the red chili into tiny pieces and mix in with the avocado.
  2. Squeeze the juice from the lime into the avocado and add a pinch of black pepper and Celtic sea salt.
  3. Cut the coriander into large piece and mix into the avocado along with crushed walnuts
  4. Lay the lettuce leaves out and spoon some of the mix into the middle of the leaves. Wrap the lettuce around the avocado mix and secure with a toothpick.

Serves 6 as finger food

TIP: Avocados are packed full of healthy fats and beneficial nutrients for the kidneys. However, if you have issues with high potassium then reduce the avocado to ¼ of an avocado per serve. This will provide 190mg of potassium.
