These guilt-free lettuce wraps are so easy, you don’t need to use measured quantities. Vegan as written but can be customized for any tastes. The soy crumbles provide a satisfying meaty flavor.
These Asian lettuce wraps are great for a quick weeknight meal you will love and you don’t really have to measure anything. Just add more or less of your favorite vegetables! I’ve listed specific ingredient quantities in the printable just to show you what I did but add, omit or increase whatever you want! The recipe is purely vegan as written but change out the soy crumbles (which my husband thought was ground beef) for ground beef or chicken if you prefer.
This recipe made enough for 4 people to have two wraps. Next time, I will increase the quantities because we all wanted more! Also, I used butter lettuce but it is a bit tender and did break apart somewhat. We didn’t care, though.
Serve extra sauces on the side for more pouring.
