Ten minutes and it’s a wrap! Tender leaves of lettuce are the receptacles for a deliciously spiced meaty filling of ground beef that browns up fast in a pan with ginger and garlic. All you need is ponzu and peanut butter to whip up a satay-style sauce that dresses a salad of finely sliced cucumbers and pre-cut carrot matchsticks. Our popular Mellow Sesame spice mix, featuring sugared sesame seeds, gives this ultra-quickie a light and easy Asian ambience.

  • 340g Ground beef (high-protein serving)
  • 150g Matchstick carrots

  • 30g Peanut butter
