Ever since I discovered lettuce wraps, I’ve been obsessed! Meals that manage to pack in a ton of veggies while still being mouthwatering are my bread and butter. Truth be told, I’ve been making this recipe for a long time. Lettuce wraps are one of the first recipes I got into when I started cooking a few years ago and haven’t stopped making them since. When I made these for dinner and posted them on my IG story, so many of you asked for the recipe that I knew I had to share it.
I’m a theme person. When I go to cook, I think, am I going for savory, zesty, Indian inspired, Asian? Most of the time, Asian wins. I love the way Asian flavors pack a punch with such minimal ingredients. I also love the abundant use of vegetables, bright colors, and fresh ingredients.
These lettuce wraps incorporate all of the above. They’re better than your takeout dreams and packed with tons of nutrient-dense ingredients that you’ll feel good about eating and serving to your family. As an added bonus, they also contain about 20 grams of protein per 4 wraps and are ridiculously low carb as they are wrapped in lettuce. Are you drooling yet? Let’s get to it!
*Kat’s tip: I like to double the sauce mixture and save some for later to drizzle over the lettuce wraps when serving.*
