If you’ve been following Well Vegan for a while, you know my recipes are heavily influenced by Asian cuisine. Despite the sweltering heat, I’ve been craving curry. So, I decided to make a quick and easy meal that’s light enough to enjoy on a sweaty summer night. These Coconut Curry Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps positively pop with flavor and look so pretty on a dinner plate.
These lettuce wraps are so simple to make and only require one pot, so cleanup is a breeze. First, you’ll gently heat fresh ginger, garlic, and curry paste in coconut oil until it smells heavenly. Then, season everything with a pinch of salt and add coconut milk and cauliflower florets to the pan. You can use any color cauliflower here. I like buying purple or orange cauliflower for a fun twist.
Simmer the curry until the cauliflower is fork-tender and the curry sauce thickens a bit. Then, spoon everything into a lettuce wrap. I promise they’ll be delicious, but I can’t say they won’t be a little messy! Drizzle each lettuce wrap with a bit of plain non-dairy yogurt and top with fresh cilantro. I also added a sprinkle of Dang Snacks Lightly Salted Coconut Chips for extra flavor and texture in each bite.
I recently discovered Dang Coconut Chips and have been hooked on them ever since. To make their coconut chips, Dang toasts whole Thai coconut slices for a naturally sweet flavor and satisfying crunch. I like to eat them by the handful and add them to homemade trail mix. As I found out, Dang Coconut Chips also make a perfect topping for these Coconut Curry Cauliflower Lettuce Wraps. You can find Dang Coconut Chips at Target, Sprouts, and Walmart. They even gave us a coupon to share with you! Click here to download the coupon and save $1.00 when you try any Dang food product.
