Delicious Do-It-Yourself Lettuce Wraps

Delicious Do-It-Yourself Lettuce Wraps | ChopChop

Description

This is our version of a Thai-style lettuce wrap, and it’s like a cross between a taco and a salad. All you have to do is prepare the ingredients and set them out: everyone assembles their own wraps, which makes it a fun, easy, interactive meal.

Hands-on time: 20 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4 Servings

Kitchen Gear: 

Measuring cup
Measuring spoons
Sharp knife (adult needed)
Cutting board
6 small bowls 

Ingredients

1  
head soft-leafed lettuce, such as Bibb or butter (leaves separated, washed, and dried
)
2 cups
shredded or diced cooked chicken
2 cups
veggies, such as shredded cabbage, grated carrots, or leftover cooked green beans, or sliced radishes
1 cup
whole fresh herb leaves: mint, cilantro, or basil, or a combination
1⁄3 cup
roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped

2 tablespoons
soy sauce

2 tablespoons
fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon
sugar

Instructions

Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your kitchen gear and ingredients and put them on a clean counter.

  1. Arrange the lettuce, chicken, veggies, herbs, and peanuts in bowls or on plates.
  2. Put the soy sauce, lime juice, and sugar in a bowl and stir well.
  3. To assemble a roll, put a lettuce leaf on your plate and pile a small heap of ingredients across its middle, topping it with peanuts and a spoonful of sauce. Fold the sides in and roll the leaf up around the filling, burrito-style.

Notes

Substitute cubes of raw or baked tofu for the chicken.
