A few months ago, I discovered with great astonishment the varied versatility of romaine lettuce. I had had it with attempting to find a gluten-free hamburger bun that could replace my moist gluten filled ones. Unfortunately, I never have found one that could even compare, and so wistfully I moved past the notion of ever succeeding. I am glad that I failed so many times. I discovered the delicious flavor of enclosing my hamburger with a lettuce wrap. From there, it evolved to chicken and other meats. To honestly admit, I do not miss breads, nor do I miss what they do to my waistline.
All Natural Romaine Lettuce Wraps
- Large romaine lettuce leaf
- meat (chicken, ground beef, etc.)
- all natural sauces
For a hamburger lettuce wrap, rinse the lettuce and pat dry. Add precooked ground beef, onions, all natural pickles, and tomatoes. Then finish with all natural sauces. I prefer ketchup and mustard.
For chicken lettuce wraps, rinse the lettuce and pat dry. Add precooked shredded chicken, cucumbers, carrots, etc. Then finish with an all natural dressing. I prefer thousand island, but the possibilities are endless.
