Wilted Iceberg & Peas

Yesterday was Taco night…who says Vegans can’t enjoy a good taco night. Anywho, I had left over lettuce since I only used ½ head for the tacos (I stopped buying the bagged lettuce long ago). Certain produce, like iceberg, I don’t like letting it linger around in the fridge too long. This recipe is quick and easy, ready in about 15 minutes or make a Iceberg Wedge salad with leftover lettuce. This is a very simple recipe and makes a great side or main dish and is even perfect for lunch. I served this up with Quinoa (more on Quinoa) on the side. For a Round 2 leftover recipe, I tossed the remaining braised Iceberg and Peas with the leftover quinoa, pictured below!

Note: You can finish with or add 1 Tbsp of Earth Balance during cooking if you wish also to add another layer of flavor. I was out so this time I used only Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
