Thai lettuce cops with pork mince and herbs

Thai lettuce cups

+2 years

These lettuce cups are just a tad spicy. We don't use a lot of green curry, but enough to really give your child a taste of thai cuisine. They're also super fun to eat!

Ingredients for 4 lettuce cups

  • 4 lettuce leaves (little gem)

  • 4 tbsp minced chicken

  • 1 tsp green curry paste

  • 1 spring onion

  • 1 tsp mint, freshly chopped

  • 1 tsp coriander, freshly chopped


  1. Spring onion

    Chop the spring onion finely after cutting off the bottom and about 5 cm off the top.

  2. Chicken

    Heat some vegetable oil in a pan and fry the minced chicken together with the spring onion.

  3. Curry paste

    When the chicken is cooked through, add the green curry paste and stir. Take off the heat.

  4. Herbs

    Stir the chopped mint and coriander through the chicken.

  5. Lettuce cups

    Scoop the chicken mixture in the lettuce leaves.
