Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Sweet Corn Gazpacho Monday, May 26, 2014, 10:15 PM
Meredith and I made Asian Lettuce Wraps.. We made a few changes including extra cilantro, a but of plum vinegar and a tiny bit of honey. Actually, we used extra noodles since that is how the sizing of the packages worked. Finally, we used mixer-shredded poached chicken. The lettuce was Boston Bibb lettuce. They were really good. The noodles are a bit strange but I like the texture. And the flavor was really good. I do want to explore some more lettuce wraps fillers just to try something different.
And we made sweet Corn Gazpacho from the recipe below. We actually followed the recipe pretty closely other than using red tomatoes (hence the color) instead of yellow. And we used Osem for broth.
I thought it had something of an earthy flavor. Lots of onion (from the shallots?) and was a bit sharp. But I still enjoyed it. Meredith didn't love it. Uncooked corn worked surprisingly well but I do think some of the harsher flavors could have been toned down if it were cooked.
