Cauliflower Lettuce Wrap

Before going vegan, one of my favorite dishes was Lettuce wrap. I love the combination of the ground salty protein with the light texture of the lettuce. Less carbs always feels better on your body. The cauliflower and walnuts are so good and healthy at the same time. cauliflower is rich in vitamin C, K, Protein and potassium. It is known to fight cancer cells and also a great anti inflammatory & antioxidant vegetable. So adding cauliflower to your daily meal is not a bad idea. Walnuts are known as well for their anti inflammatory properties as well as omega 3.

Walnuts are rich in antioxidants and vitamin B and a good source of copper.

The spices I used are warm and delicious, they truly work perfectly in this dish. It is a fantastic, light dinner, gluten free and low carb, or in other words, guilt free! just what I like:)
