If you donít feel like making the coconut wrappers, you can either use the lettuce as a wrapper, or just use regular store bought rice wrappers that youíll find in the Asian section of most grocery stores.
1 Cup Young Coconut Meat (see pic above how pliable it is?)
1/2 Cup Coconut Water
1/4 Cup Flax Meal (Optional)
Pinch of Salt
Cucumber, thinly sliced
Scallions, thinly sliced lengthwise
Star Fruit, thinly sliced
Spicy Citrus dipping Sauce:
1 1/2 Tablespoon Nama Shoyu
3 Tablespoons Water
1 Serrano Chili, minced
1-2 Cloves Garlic, minced
2 Teaspoons Agave
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
For the Coconut Wrappers:
In a Vita Mix or high speed blender, blend everything until completely smooth. Now comes the tricky bit. You should be able to make four wrappers on each teflex lined tray of your dehydrator, unless you want to make one huge wrapper on each tray- itís your choice. Pour out 2-4 tablespoons of the coconut custard and spread out thin with a spoon or spreader/spatula. Dehydrate at 105- 110 degrees until completely dry, 6-12 hours. When they are done, you will be able to peel them off of the teflex sheet.
For the Filling:
There are no rules here. You can put whatever you want in the wrappers.
Fill the coconut wrappers with the veggies. If you are using the coconut wrappers, be warned that they will get soggy quite quickly. It's a really good idea to FIRST lay down lettuce then add your other veggies on top of that. Itís also best to roll them as you are eating them. If you are using the lettuce as your wrapper, it wonít be an issue.
spicy citrus dipping sauce:
Whisk all the ingredients together. This is your dipping sauce.
OKAY HOW i TWEAKED the recipe:
For the coconut wrappers... omg... it's so worth making these ... they are FABULOUS! I did use the flax meal and would highly recommend adding it. I also added about 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk.... which really gives it some resilience when you roll the wrappers up.
Also for those that don't use Nama Shoyu, yu can always substitue with Tamari, Braggs or Coconut aminos.
this is one of my all time favorites, and most SAD eaters love it too!
hope you enjoy it!
