Vegetable Lettuce Wraps
You guys, it’s August! Where the heck did July go? I feel like moving basically took up the entire month. Now we have family in town and are so busy.
I made these lettuce wraps when I was trying to clean out my fridge at the old house and they were so tasty! My regular readers may already know that I love a good lettuce wrap! I’ve got a number of different versions on my blog like Honey Chipotle Chicken, Thai Peanut Chicken, and Copycat P.F. Chang’s just to name a few.
I figured a good vegetarian lettuce wrap recipe was needed so here it is! These really couldn’t be easier. There’s just some chopping involved, but these don’t require much cooking time at all and then it’s time to eat!
I tend to prefer my lettuce wraps to be pretty simple. I don’t like a lot of toppings, but you guys can certainly dress these guys up however you please! Cheese, salsa, cilantro, sour cream, whatever you want! You could also add in other veggies or beans if desired and can easily adjust the spices as needed. You really can’t screw these up! I’m loving these easy vegetable lettuce wraps for quick weeknight dinners!
