I like messy food. Alot. Which is why I love wraps. Sure, they seem neat and tidy when you take your first bite, and your second, and maybe even your fourth. But when you get towards the end….BAM all the insides fall out. To some, it may cause a little stress. Me, I pick up my fork and stuff as much as I can into my mouth.
These are good. Really good. And you can add anything you want into them. I like recipes with freedom….and that I can’t screw up.
Lettuce Wraps with Spicy Peanut Sauce
For 3 Wraps:
6 pieces lettuce
1/2 red pepper, cut into thin slices
1/2 yellow pepper, cut into thin slices
1/2 avocado, sliced
1 shredded carrots
1/2 cucumber, cut into thin slices
1/4 green apple, cut into thin slices
Slice your veggies & apple. Lay out 3 lettuce pieces. Divide up apple & vegetables into the lettuce leaves, but make sure not to overstuff. Begin to roll, tucking both ends in and roll another lettuce leave with the one that is stuffed. Use toothpicks if you want, I do. Rolling the wraps can take a couple tries..but it’s worth it.
