Who LOVES lettuce wraps? *me! me!* I have been struggling for the past year with my wraps! They rip, fall apart, and leave a giant mess. It was not until recently I learned how to actually make a wrap, yes there is an art to the wrap! Here's how to have a beautiful wrap...
I am on a low-carb kick again and my favorite go to food is a lettuce wrap! An easy way to separate the leaves is to cut the end off then hold the head under water until the leaves fall off.
You will need parchment or wax paper... lay your paper down then place several layers of lettuce down to form a "square", you want the leaves to overlap... (My lettuce was nearing the end of its lifespan and it was a little droopy!).
I guess I did not take a picture of my toppings! Once you have your lettuce laid out put whatever you want on it! I stayed simple, mayo, lunch meat, cheese, pickles, and a sliver of red onion... I put the toppings down the middle of the lettuce in a line.
Take one side of the paper and roll it over. , carefully pull the rolled paper out while keeping the lettuce rolled
Keep rolling and pulling the paper out, (like you are rolling sushi) until the wrap is all rolled up!
I usually fold the ends in halfway during the roll-up but forgot!
Now you can either cut in half and eat or just tear off one end of the paper and dig in!
Thanks for stopping by!
