You simply can’t beat the crunchy texture, fun fillings, and easy preparation of lettuce wraps. In the summer, these light and versatile bites make for perfect post-pool snacks or low-cal dinners, but lettuce wraps are a great healthy treat year-round. Here are five of our favorite varieties; let us know which you love the most!
This easy meal from Goodtaste comes together in just 45 minutes! Steer clear of white meat; ground dark chicken meat helps the meatballs stay extra moist while baking in the oven.
You don’t need meat to make a delicious lettuce wrap! This Savory Vegan’s recipe infuses hearty chickpeas with tang and zest by smashing them up with Buffalo sauce and a slew of spices.
The main component of bossam is pork belly boiled in water with aromatics like garlic and ginger. In this version from My Korean Kitchen, however, whole red apples are added to the boiling water to imbue the pork with additional sweetness!
Pinch of Yum pulls inspiration from traditional stir-fry for these hearty wraps. Crispy tofu, brown rice noodles, and a peanut butter sauce make these wraps especially savory. Not in the mood to eat your food by hand? Pile everything in a bowl and eat with a fork grain-bowl style.
We like to think of this recipe from Bon Appétit as an inside-out BLT, where the crisp lettuce, smoky bacon, and juicy tomatoes really get to be the stars. Don’t worry, you still get your bread, too, but in the form of a crunchy breadcrumb topping. Also, don’t skip on the homemade horseradish mayo—the subtle heat is phenomenal with the sweet tomatoes.
