Spicy Sweet Potato Lettuce Wraps

Spicy Sweet Potato Lettuce Wraps

Fresh, crispy, hydrating lettuce leaves are the perfect complement to roasted spicy sweet potatoes in this recipe. These lettuce wraps are delicious while also being full of nutrients. This recipe is made without any fats such as oil or butter, which makes it even more healing. These wraps are great for a light meal or a snack anytime of day.

Sweet potatoes are also important for regulating hair growth; they stimulate it where needed and prohibit hair when it tries to grow in the wrong places, as in the condition hirsutism.

The leafy outer greens of lettuce provide dozens of micronutrients for the liver to stay healthy and balanced, while the core of the lettuce, down closer to the root, provides milky chemical compounds that act as a purging mechanism for it.

  • 1 tbsp lime juice, more to serve
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
