To that end, lettuce wraps are a way to get a boon of extra veggies in your diet, and you can readily find locally grown lettuce during this time of year. Tasty fillings of all kinds are fantastic to wrap in leaves of our romaine lettuce, and you can nosh happily knowing that you incorporating locally grown and nutrient rich foods into your diet.
This recipe uses Crabtree romaine lettuce, shiitake mushrooms, carrots, garlic, and green onions in a delicious vegan dish that even meat lovers can appreciate and enjoy. Toss in some cooked brown or red rice for an even more filling meal. Hope you enjoy wrapping with our crisp (non E. coli contaminated) romaine lettuce this winter.
