Back in the day, Mal and I would make lettuce wraps all of the time for dinner. We had just moved in together and neither of us knew anything about cooking. Lettuce wraps were so easy to make, nutritious, and sort of gourmet– at least to us! 😉
I’m not sure how we let lettuce wraps go by the wayside, but I’m glad that we added this meal to our weekly lineup once again. Mal and I actually made a night of it– complete with wine and dinner music. 😀
Our lettuce wrap toppings included:
Fresh guacamole and a mixture of cashews, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds.
Carrots, chopped green bell peppers, and shredded cheddar cheese.
Nasoya Japanese-style noodles.
And, of course, Boston lettuce for the wraps.
I ate about 5 or 6 lettuce wraps with all of the ingredients and low-sodium soy sauce drizzled inside.
The lettuce wraps were so delicious, but I forgot how messy they are to eat!
I love that lettuce wraps are supposed to be eaten with your hands. It makes for a fun meal!
Mal and I originally started with forks, but by the end of the meal, we gave up trying to be neat and used our hands to add ingredients to our lettuce wraps.
It was so much easier than fumbling around with utensils!
Even though they’re a little messy, lettuce wraps are the perfect meal for a chill night at home with your favorite person.
