Today we made a healthy and easy snack that can easily be turned into dinner…Lettuce Wraps!
This takes little time to get ready and gets the kids involved in creating their meal by picking which ingredients they want in the wrap. Here is the recipe and remember you can swap out any of the ingredients with things your family likes.
1 head of soft-leafed lettuce (Bib or butter) washed and separated
2 cups of ground turkey (or chicken, tofu, beef)
1 cup of wild whole grain rice
2 cups of veggies (grated carrots, sliced bell peppers, sliced radishes)
1 cup of fresh herbs (basil, mint, and/or cilantro)
1 /3 cup of crushed peanuts
2 tablespoons of terriyaki sauce (I like the Veri Terriyaki brand)
2 tablespoons of lime juice
Arrange the lettuce, turkey, different veggies, herbs and peanuts in small bowls or on plates
Assemble wraps by placing rice at the base, turkey, chosen veggies, and then top off with terriyaki sauce and lime juice, sprinkle peanuts.
