You need to use something to bind the food together. You can use either gelatin or agar agar (which is like a plant based gelatin).

You can buy gelatin at the grocery store in the baking aisle. You can usually find it right where they sell boxed jello - just look for an unflavored gelatin or ask someone. It is pretty cheap :)

If you didn't use gelatin there would be nothing to hold the food together and make it solid, it would just be a soupy mess ;)

I would replace the lettuce with something like spinach or kale. And as opposed to dicing/mashing, you'll need to blend all ingredients together in a blender or using a hand blender (you'll need to add a little water to do this)

Gel food can honestly be a little tricky, so you may want to take a recipe that someone has already figured out works (in terms of measurements etc.) to start and then begin modifying it as you get more comfortable.

There are lots of recipes here http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/page/index.html/_/goldfish-food/gel-food-r250

Here's another super easy one that you could add some veggies to to modify it http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/page/index.html/_/goldfish-food/gel-food-for-beginners-r255
