few glugs of olice oil into a heated wok

add mince and cook until brown

add minced garlic, chopped chillis and ginger and stir through

add the soy sauce and stir for a minute or two

wash your lettuce leaves- keep them intact as they are the ‘cups’ to hold the lettuce

dry the leaves and place two on a plate and gently add some of the mince mixture into the lettuce cups

sprinkle with the chopped scallions and add some avocado if you like too
