An Asian inspired recipe for lettuce wraps! A great low-carb meal.
We love to eat wraps in our house, specifically, soft tacos. I’m not a fan of the hard taco shell as it tends to break apart as soon as I bit into it, losing it’s ability to actually hold my food. So instead, I buy whole wheat tortillas to wrap our taco fixin’s in.
However, lately, I’ve been trying to avoid carbs at dinnertime as I find they make me sluggish and bloated if I eat them in the evening. So instead of using tortillas to wrap our fixin’s in, I’ve been using lettuce leaves! And instead of Mexican inspired filling, I’ve opted for Asian inspired flavour.
This meal is so easy to make and it’s loaded with lean protein, veggies, and of course some added fruit for sweetness. I used butter lettuce for these wraps, but I would suggest using Romaine as it’s a little crisper and sturdier.
I also added in some cooked brown rice to make this meal a little more filling.
This meal was liked by all. It was filling enough for the husband and sweet enough for the kids. I love that it’s a complete meal in one neat little package!
I had a lot of filling left over which was even tastier the next day for lunch! You could also serve these as an appetizer for company. Feel free to have fun with it and add whatever toppings you like.
