Chickpeas and Vegetables Lettuce Wraps + Sweet Chilli Sauce
A new month has started! Can you believe it! We're entering a new season here...Autumn, but it doesn't feel quite autumnal yet. Cold breezes, sunny mornings and  afternoon showers.Yes! a few more weeks and the beautiful crunchy yellow leaves will decorate the sidewalks again.
So we have been eating a variety of cold and warm meals.Warm foods on the semi-cold evenings and satisfying light lunches on sunny days. And lately we've been experimenting with Asian foods and flavors a lot more! These lettuce wraps are one of our old favorites, we usually serve this with a yogurt dressing but this time we wanted to go a bit more spicy. These are great, and you can make the filling the night before! I'm thinking, next time I will add some toasted cashews too. Light, satisfying, simple...delightful!

Happy Weekend!
