The Instacart guide to Manoa lettuce
About Manoa lettuce
The Green Mignonette, popularly known as the Manoa lettuce in Hawaii, is a type of lettuce of the semi-head variety. The lettuce's head's firmness and size will vary based on the temperature under which the plant grows. The lettuce has glossy, medium to dark-bright green colored, slightly wrinkled, tender, crisp, and sweet flavored leaves that can grow up to 15 inches high. A mature Manoa lettuce will measure up to 8 to 10 inches in height and weigh approximately one pound, but they are best harvested when the heads weigh less.
Manoa lettuce can be harvested two to three weeks after they germinate. At this time, the leaves are large enough to use. Lettuce is usually harvested by cutting the leaves from the outside or cutting the whole plant at the base. Cutting the leaves allows the plant to regrow new leaves that can be harvested in the future.
You can use Manoa lettuce to make other products such as:
- Juice: Since lettuce contains a lot of water, you can easily throw a few leaves in the blender and mix it with other fruits and vegetables to make a smoothie or a green juice.
- Soup: Throw in some crisp shredded lettuce into a bowl of soup. While the lettuce will soften, it will still retain some crunch, adding another sweet flavor and a new texture to your soup.
- Sandwiches and Burgers: Lettuce is usually used in combination with other vegetables when making burgers and sandwiches.
- Wraps: If you want to make a wrap but avoid the carbs, lettuce makes a good substitution for a taco wrap or a bun on a burger.
Lettuce can also be braised, sautéed, grilled, or steamed and eaten as is.
