1 Madras Curry savory bowl

1 head butter or romaine lettuce

1/4-1/2 head sliced red cabbage

1 can chickpeas (15 oz.)(recommend unsalted)

1 can chopped tomatoes with juice (15 oz.)(recommend unsalted)

3 limes

1 cup plant based yogurt (recommend plain unsweetened)

curry powder (optional)


Tools Needed:

large serving bowl
Microwave or stove


  1. Prepare LeafSide’s Madras Curry savory bowl as directed. Arrange lettuce leaves in double layers for each wrap.
  2. Thinly slice red cabbage or use pre-sliced packaged cabbage. Open & drain can of chickpeas.
  3. Fill lettuce cups with Madras Curry meal; add chickpeas on top, along with red cabbage.
  4. Squeeze lime juice on top & add dollop of plant based yogurt. Sprinkle with additional curry powder if desired (optional).

Other suggested additions: red onions (cooked or raw), cashews, fresh ginger, chopped kale, cilantro, cauliflower florets (cooked or raw), shredded carrots


Strain water from chickpeas, or aquafaba, into a container to refrigerate and use in the future for sautéing or roasting vegetables in place of oil.

Nutrition Fast Fact

Sulforaphane the Superhero

Practically alone in the plant kingdom, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower, collards, or the kale in this meal, offer a uniquely powerful nutrient called sulforaphane (we’d prefix it with Super and capitalize Sulforaphane, but that’s just us).

Its studied superpowers include blocking cancer cell growth and spread, repairing DNA damage, helping your liver do its detox dance, protecting your eyes and brain, reducing inflammation generally, and even helping to relieve autism symptoms.

The one caveat is that heat and cooking deactivate sulforaphane, so if you don’t like your veggies raw, you’ll need just a bit of mustard and its magical myrosinase enzyme, to reactivate sulforaphane fully.

Thanks to Dr. Greger for that tip, and giving these veggies their own place in his Daily Dozen!
