@MisfitsMarket Challenge July - Celery & Red Onion
The first Misfit Market box arrived and it includes fruits and vegetables that I normally would not pick up on my trip to the grocery store. Here is how I prepared each one.
This post is all about the Celery & Red Onion.
This recipe is slightly modified from the original which I found here
Chicken Satay Lettuce Wraps
For the satay sauce:
⅓ cup plus 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
3 tablespoons natural almond butter
1 tablespoon raw honey
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
¼ to ½ teaspoon sriracha hot sauce, to taste
For the filling:
1 pound chicken breast, ground
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
1 cup finely chopped broccoli
1 cup chopped purple cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
8 green onions (white and green parts), chopped
¼ cup chopped red onion
½ cup chopped jicama
½ cup chopped celery
4 to 6 lettuce leaves (Bibb, Boston, or romaine), washed and dried well
½ cup unsalted cashew pieces
Toasted sesame seeds or hemp seeds
Make the sauce:
In a small bowl or medium jar, whisk or shake together the sauce ingredients until well combined. Set aside.
Make the filling:
In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook the meat until browned and no longer pink, 5 to 10 minutes.
Add the vegetables and the sauce mixture and cook until the green onions and red peppers are softened and the meat has soaked up the mixture, about 5 minutes more.
Remove the pan from the heat.
Spoon about ⅓ cup of the filling into a lettuce leaf. Sprinkle with the cashews and sesame or hemp seeds and enjoy!
The celery and red onions are basic food staples. In this recipe they added a level of crunch and spiciness. Both products were in great condition.
Did the Celery and Red Onion pass the challenge? YES! ...but how could they not?
