  • 8 pieces of shrimp
  • 1.5 Tbsp korean BBQ seasoning
  • 1/2 Tbsp oil

Rice

  • Steamed jasmine rice
  • Chopped cilantro

Sesame Sauce – optional

Directions

First wash the butter lettuce and set aside to dry. While that is drying cook your rice. I have been using “Grain Trust Steamed Jasmine Rice” for a lot of my quick meals. This brand is vegan, gluten-free and microwaves in less than 3 minutes.

Toss cooked rice with chopped cilantro, lime juice and salt. Set aside while you cook shrimp.

Heat skillet over medium-hi heat and add oil and shrimp. Add seasoning to shrimp and cook for 4-5 minutes. Remove shrimp, increase heat to Hi and add sesame oil to hot skillet. Combine the shishito peppers with seasoning and cook for about 5 minutes, tossing often until blistered.

Add all ingredients from sesame sauce in a small bowl and stir until mixed.

Serve immediately!

Chocolate Cups & Nice Cream

By Recipes One Comment

Ingredients

Chocolate

  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Sweetener to taste (stevia or maple syrup)

Nilla Nice Cream

  • 2-3 frozen bananas
  • Tsp vanilla
  • Tbsp nut milk

Nut Butter Mix

  • 1/2 cup nut butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter (NOT to be confused w/ coconut oil)

Directions

Melt coconut oil, then add the cocoa powder and set aside. Combine nut butter and coconut butter in a bowl and heat until just melted. Both should take less than 30 seconds. This can also be done on the stovetop.

Fill a muffin tray with liners and spoon enough chocolate mixture to cover bottom, about a tablespoon. Pop in the freezer for about 15 minutes and then add the nut butter in the center. Repeat with the chocolate to cover the top. They also great just doing half chocolate and nut butter with no filling!

For the nice cream all you have to do is throw all the ingredients together into a food processor or blender, blend until smooth and voilà!

Keep in freezer and pop out to enjoy as a snack or to binge. No judgement zone.
