CHARGRILLED BABY COS WITH SUGAR-FREE PEANUT SAUCE

Ingredients:

2 sweet baby cos lettuce. I use The Fresh Grower Brand, found in most supermarkets in New Zealand

  • a little oil

  • salt and pepper to season

SUGAR FREE Peanut Sauce

  • 1/3 cup of peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup hot water

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tbsp lime juice

  • 1 inch of ginger, grated

  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated

  • ground pepper

Pre heat a griddle pan, grill or your BBQ

Cut baby cos into quarters through the base, ensuring the leaves all stay together

Brush a little oil over both sides of the heart of the baby cos

Place oiled sides down on the griddle pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side or until slightly charred

To make the sauce: add all ingredients into a blender and mix till smooth. If a little thick, add a little more water

Once the lettuce is charred and slightly wilted, serve charred side up on a platter with a bowl of sauce for dipping

DEVOUR AND ENJOY!
