I’m in love with these vegan lettuce wraps. I could eat them for lunch and dinner EVERY. DAMN. DAY. But not for breakfast, cause that’s kind of weird. I have to draw the line somewhere. Ok, but in all seriousness, these lettuce wraps are just THAT good. The flavours are so amazing. They are loaded with ginger, garlic, tamari, coconut sugar and sesame oil- it’s a combination that will blow your mind!
The main ingredient is none other than CAULIFLOWER! Basically, it’s cauliflower cut quite small, sauteed with onion and garlic. Then left to simmer with the tamari (or gluten free soy sauce), sesame oil, coconut sugar, red chili flakes. Lastly, it’s topped with sesame seeds and loaded into a lovely piece of lettuce. Then it’s devoured by YOU! They are super easy to make and super easy to demolish.
here are some reasons why I love these vegan lettuce wraps, so listen up!
- The flavours remind me of my ginger beef days. It used to be one of my favourite foods, and these cauliflower lettuce wraps came close to the real deal.
- SO EASY to put together. Throw it all in a saucepan, wrap in butter lettuce, eat.
- My sweet Picky Husband isn’t a HUGE cauliflower fan (mostly because I cook A LOT with it, and he gets sick of it), but he loved the flavours and gave this recipe his approval. Maybe I need to cut back on the cauliflower recipes.
- It’s a one pan kind of dinner. Although there is some chopping involved, everything is cooked in one pan. Fewer dishes = a happier family, right? At least it does over here. Both Adam and I hate doing the dishes.
These lettuce wraps would make a killer appetizer for a party, or they make for a nice and light dinner. These wraps have flavour! They’re healthy! They’re meatless! And they’re going to be your new fav dish! Time to get a little messy in the kitchen, friends!
