Bernice Said:Any vegetarian recipes/tips for lettuce, besides salads or sandwiches?
We Answered:Lettuce Soup
It sounds a little weird to make soup out of salad ingredients, but this beautiful cold soup is light and refreshing.
Yield 4 servings
Time 5 minutes (plus time to chill)
* container with lid
* 4 c Boston or Bibb lettuce, torn
* 2 c baby spinach, stemmed
* 1 c fresh parsley
* 1/3 c shallot, onion, and/or garlic, chopped
* Â¾ c yogurt
* 2 T lemon juice
* 2 c vegetable stock
* optional garnish: very thin slices of radish, carrot, and/or cucumber
Directions Place everything except garnish in the blender and process until smooth.
Refrigerate at least three hours, until just before serving. Taste and adjust seasonings.:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
* 2-3 large gem lettuce
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
Break off the outside leaves of the lettuces.
Lay them on a plate and season with salt.
Leave for about 15 minutes to 'bleed' and soften.
Heat a large frying pan or wok until very hot.
Toss the leaves with the olive oil and stir-fry for just a minute until they begin to wilt.
Mix in the rice wine vinegar and drain on paper towel.
Tastes better than spinach!

Wilma Said:Can anyone share their lettuce salad recipes?
We Answered:Yummy Salad
bag of lettuce leaves
vine ripened tomatoes
1 red pepper
vegan french dressing
Because of the lovely range of colours in this salad it looks best spread across the plate rather than tossed in a bowl. You can add the dressing in a bowl on the side or drizzle some on the top.

We Answered:Asian Lettuce Wraps for 30 people
120 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves
7-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/3 cup and 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon cooking oil
7-1/2 large onion, chopped
15 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/3 cup and 2 tablespoons soy sauce
1-3/4 cups and 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon minced pickled ginger
1/3 cup and 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
Asian chile pepper sauce (optional)
7-1/2 (8 ounce) cans water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
7-1/2 bunches green onions, chopped
1/4 cup and 1 tablespoon Asian (dark) sesame oil
Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry, being careful not tear them. Set aside.
In a medium skillet over high heat, brown the ground beef in 1 tablespoon of oil, stirring often and reducing the heat to medium, if necessary. Drain, and set aside to cool. Cook the onion in the same pan, stirring frequently. Add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chile pepper sauce to the onions, and stir. Stir in chopped water chestnuts, green onions, and sesame oil, and continue cooking until the onions just begin to wilt, about 2 minutes.
Arrange lettuce leaves around the outer edge of a large serving platter, and pile meat mixture in the center. To serve, allow each person to spoon a portion of the meat into a lettuce leaf. Wrap the lettuce around the meat like a burrito, and enjoy!
