Fresh Avocado and Bean Lettuce Wrap

Makes 12 wraps

Preparation Time: 10 min

Creamy and colourful, these wraps come together in very little time. The crisp red bell peppers and lettuce add crunch. For an easy appetizer, prepare the bean filling separately from the lettuce, and assemble just before you’re ready to eat.


can (540 mL/19 oz) white kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped reconstituted sundried tomatoes (see tip) 60 mL
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley 60 mL
clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper 1 mL
avocado, diced
small red bell pepper, diced
1 tbsp cider vinegar 15 mL
small head Boston leaf lettuce
carrot, grated


Step 1
In a large bowl, using a potato masher or fork, mash beans until coarse. Stir in tomatoes, parsley, garlic and ground pepper until well distributed. Gently fold in avocado, red bell pepper and vinegar.

Step 2
Spoon bean mixture into lettuce leaves and sprinkle with carrot to serve.


To prep sundried tomatoes: Place in a bowl and pour boiling water over top. Let it stand for about 3 minutes or until tender and soft. Drain water and chop sundried tomatoes to use in recipe.
Little chefs can help to mash the beans, stir the mixture and fill their own lettuce leaves.
Avocados turn brown quickly so cut them up just before using them. 
Bump up the colour in this recipe with sliced radishes or quartered cherry tomatoes.
