Save the carbs and calories – use a lettuce wrap!

You can use a lettuce wrap for anything you’d put in bread or a tortilla – from fajitas and burritos to sandwiches. But, our favorite are these Asian-style lettuce wraps, that are low carb, low fat, low in calories and HIGH in protein. You’ll eat these with ZERO guilt – and kids love them, too!

INGREDIENTS (serves 4):

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 oz raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup diced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped cabbage
  • 1/4 handful chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1-2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
For the wraps:

Use any hearty leaf:  Romaine hearts, collard leaves or cabbage leaves work best in terms of staying together, and you end up with a crunchy, easy-to-eat lettuce “boat.”

Preparation:

  1. Warm 2 tsp coconut oil in a cast-iron pan
  2. Brown the meat and veggies
  3. When it’s just about done, add your cashews, cilantro, ginger and soy sauce – and mix to coat.
  4. Transfer mixture to lettuce boats and enjoy!
