Thai Lettuce Wraps

Hi everyone!

I've had these in the old recipe file for a while, just waiting for me to get around to them. So I suggested them the other night and the great BF helped me execute them beautifully! It's really easy and mostly a concept more than a specific recipe- you can change any vegetables out for any others, make your peanut sauce the way you like it, add other things, etc. So let's go!

Here's your fairly simple arsenal- I always include tortillas with wraps if you want to up your calorie content :)
The peanut sauce in progress...
And all of our ingredients ready to assemble, from chicken to veggies, noodles, and sauce.

Thai Lettuce Wraps
-Romaine lettuce
-chicken, cooked and chopped/shredded/etc.
-bean sprouts
-ramen noodles, without the sauce packet
-Peanut Sauce
-Sriracha or other hot sauce
-optional: tortillas to wrap your wrap in! Very handy and tasty if you need to up your calorie or carb count!
Cut/peel the carrots and cucumber very thinly (see picture, I used a vegetable peeler).
Make your peanut sauce (look at the ingredients picture for some ideas, or you can buy some pre-maid sauce).
Cook your ramen noodles, drain.
Layer your chicken, veggies, noodles, and sauce into your lettuce shells and enjoy!!

Here is one of my finished but definitely not as beautiful wraps...
And here is one of the much more beautiful wraps the BF made- enjoy!

Savor it!
love, rue
