One of the things I love about going out to eat is trying different lettuce wraps. Lots of restaurants have their own version of these, but many of them take what would be a healthy main dish and overload it with too much salt, sugar, and fat in their sauces. Plus, lots of wrap sauces have a soy or peanut base, which can be a big no-no for people with food allergies. Here is my take on one of my favorite Asian-inspired dishes. These wraps are light, flavorful, and loaded with as many veggies as you like. If you like having a peanut-based sauce for your wrap, try adding some nut or seed butter when you whip up the sauce. Bonus: when you cook at home, you never have to guess what is in your food (and whether or not you might have an allergic reaction to it!).
* Coconut aminos: a sauce made from the fermented sap of coconut palm trees. It is sweet and tasty, with a little bit of alcohol (which cooks out). Fish sauce and coconut aminos are great soy-free, gluten-free, and grain-free alternatives to soy sauce in Asian cooking
