    The 30 BEST Lettuce Wrap Recipes

    Take that lettuce leaves from your salad bowl. They don’t have any place there anymore. Fill them with your favorite food. Wrap them… admire them… tuck them in your mouth… One delicious bite!!

    Lettuce wraps are all the rage right now. They’re the new food trend, extremely popular all over the internet. They are your “newest health food”. Why not? When you replace bread, rice or any other carb with them, your meal becomes lighter and healthier instantly.

    Low carb or keto is everybody’s favorite diet right now. Boston lettuce has a carb count of 2.9g of carbohydrates per 100g of lettuce. Hamburger buns have an average carb count of 29g. Though carbs are not the enemy, by using lettuce wraps as a substitute to hamburger buns or wraps you are lightening up your meal considerably.

    Saying that, we feel that these lettuce wraps shouldn’t be branded as keto. Once you see how delicious these lettuce wraps can be, you might swap your tacos and wraps on some days when you crave something lighter. Thinking that, we present you this amazing collection of Lettuce Wrap Recipes, where you will be amazed at the different ways you can wrap that lettuce.

    The 30 BEST Lettuce Wrap Recipes

    The best lettuce for these wraps is something sturdy. Boston and butter lettuces are more preferred, but you can use regular romaine lettuce if that’s what’s in your refrigerator. This list has wraps ranging from regular favorites like Asian ground chicken lettuce wraps to very unique ones from Vietnam and Korea. You’ll find local favorite flavors like Buffalo style lettuce wraps, meatball lettuce wraps and even burger lettuce wraps. So many unique and innovative wraps.

    Go through them all and have fun with these hand held fun meals. Make a huge platter of these lettuce wraps and treat your friends and family to this newest trend in food…
