Sweet Potato and Chia Bites

Directions

1. For the veggie slaw: Add all the ingredients to a large bowl and toss well to combine.
2. For the spicy peanut sauce: mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
3. For the Sweet Potato & Chia Bites: heat the oil in a skillet or frying pan. When hot add the Sweet Potato & Chia bites. Cook a couple minutes per side until evenly browned all over, shaking the pan or turning the bites as needed.
4. To assemble the lettuce wraps: take a leaf of iceberg lettuce, fill with the veggie slaw, top with 3 to 4 Sweet Potato & Chia Bites, spoon over the spicy peanut sauce to taste, and garnish with chopped peanuts. This makes a great party appetizer as you can serve all the separate elements on a large platter, and everyone can assemble their own lettuce wraps to taste!
