This is a fresh, delicious and healthy dish that will please the whole family. You can sprinkle other ingredients on the cups; peas, capsicum or basil would make nice additions.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
1 head of iceberg lettuce
500g beef mince
2 garlic cloves
1 onion
2cm knob of ginger
1 large carrot
2 corn cobs
1/2 bunch fresh coriander
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp soy or tamari sauce

Method
  • Remove four lettuce leaves, taking care to not break them. Wash them and leave them to dry.
  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Add the corn cobs and allow to boil for 10 minutes, then drain. Leave to the side to cool.
  • Meanwhile, finely chop the garlic and onion, and grate the carrot using the smallest setting on your grater.
  • Heat a splash of oil in a frying pan over low to medium heat. Add the garlic and onion for a few minutes, or until the onion starts to soften, then add the beef mince. Stir, breaking up the mince, and cook until the beef is cooked through.
  • Turn off the heat and stir through the carrot and 1 tbsp soy sauce. Season with salt and pepper.



  • Roughly chop the coriander and place in a small bowl. Cut the corn off the cob and add to the coriander along with the lemon juice. Mix well.



  • Take the lettuce leaves and fill them with the beef mixture. Top with the corn and coriander and drizzle with the remaining soy sauce. Serve immediately.
