Shredded Lettuce

Even though Hagrid's Flobberworms don't seem to particularly enjoy shredded lettuce (in fact, Hagrid later confesses that several of them die from eating too much of it), it is still our next new food item to appear in the series:

"'Why would anyone bother looking after them?' said Ron, after yet another hour of poking shredded lettuce down the flobberworm's slimy throats" (Prisoner of Azkaban 142).

There are an awful lot of things for which one could use shredded lettuce. One of the most obvious (and simplest!) is taco salad. As a vegetarian, this recipe is one that I throw together quite often for a quick and well-balanced healthy lunch. So here we go!

You Will Need:
2/3 cup Morningstar Farms Meal Starters, grillers style (or other vegetarian grounds)
1 packet (you won't use it all) pre-made Taco Seasoning
2 cups shredded lettuce
Your Favorite Salsa
Shredded Cheese, if desired

1. Cut up your lettuce into strips, if you haven't already, and arrange on your plate. Pour your ground grillers into a microwave safe bowl and sprinkle on taco seasoning to taste. Microwave for 1-2 minutes.

2. Pour your heated "meat" onto the pile of lettuce. 
3. Add as much salsa as you'd like, and sprinkle with cheese if desired.

So simple! So tasty! I highly recommend you give this super easy taco salad a try the next time you're looking for a tasty and nutritious meal! Enjoy!
