ahi avocado tempeh lettuce wraps.

ahi avocado wraps

After a brief summer hiatus, From the Ground Up is back! We've been cooking up some crazy things (and traveling an insane-o amount) in the last couple of months, so I'm looking forward to finally getting some of this goodness out into the interweb! 

As always, requests/ideas/feedback/questions are always super welcome: please hit up the contact page to send me a note. 

And with that... on to the yumminess:

I had a crazy desire recently for the experience of ahi tuna – not the fish itself, but for something with a creamy consistency covered in sesame seeds.

Enter: ahi avocado!

A super filling combination of avocado coated in sesame, plus quick-skillet tempeh with a crunchy cabbage slaw and almond butter dressing, all wrapped in a simple gluten-free sandwich alternative: romaine lettuce leaves.

Make the sauce ahead in a batch, or prep your tempeh in a large skillet at the top of the week, then quickly roll your avocado and fill your leaves! Voila! Lunch in moments!
