It was one of those – “what the HECK am I’m going to feed my family” kind of nights at my house. I was trying to think of something fun that included ingredients I already had in my fridge. I have been craving lettuce wraps, specifically the popular appetizer from a big chain restaurant. Alas, we don’t have many chain restaurants around our area which makes going to one a treat. I know its kind of the reverse of normal people. However, it does come in handy when implementing a “clean” diet. Anyhow, I decided to make up my own lettuce wrap recipe. It turned out delicious. My daughter’s first word when she took a bite was “yummy!”
The hardest or most time consuming part of this is chopping up all the stuff. It should be chopped or diced pretty small, so it takes a little extra time. A food chopper would be handy for this. I used mine to cut the sweet potato and carrots into small little pieces.
Local Ingredient: Chicken (purchased from the local farmers market).
