I stopped eating meat in March, and Thai chicken lettuce wraps from Continental are one of the few things I actually miss. I decided to make my own veggie version at home. I found a recipe for peanut sauce here. (The sauce turned out really thick, but the flavor was great. I might add water to it next time.)
So exciting: I actually had the ingredients already in the pantry
Trader Joe’s chunky style
Fresh garlic and peanut butter
A little kick with cayenne pepper
I used butter lettuce for the “wrap”. I filled it with red cabbage, slivers of yellow pepper and cucumber, mint and basil.
Crispy and crunchy
Leftovers to go
I chopped up the rest of the veggies for a salad. I plan to water down the sauce so that I can use it for dressing. It’s the perfect campground yoga packed lunch.
Are their any restaurant dishes that you like to make at home?
