Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps

Vegetarian lettuce wraps are one of my favorite quick dinner choices to make, because they are super similar, and also can take on a wide variety of flavors. Since the base of this meal is just a lettuce leaf you really need to include something in the wrap that has some protein, fiber, and a healthy fat to it in order to satisfy your hunger.

Personally, I love adding beans like white beans or black beans for a good source of protein + some quinoa, brown rice, sweet potato, avocado, and a whole bunch of vegetables to help make these a satisfying, yet light dinner.
