Lettuce Wrap

This lettuce wrap is a great way to have a sandwich when you’re out of bread. Plus, I’m pretty sure it’s a well-known scientific fact that food eaten in roll-up form is at least three times as fun as food eaten in flat form.

Did you know: Romaine lettuce is super delicious AND super nutritious! It’s true: romaine ranks higher than spinach and kale on the nutrition scale, has tons of good veggie protein, and has a mild flavor that most people can enjoy.


Serves: 1

The shopping list:

  • 1 romaine lettuce leaf
  • Your favorite slice of cheese
  • Your favorite assortment of vegetables (sliced thinly)
  • Any meat or meat-substitute you want to add, chopped into very small or thin slices

No prep, only fun!

Use the romaine lettuce just like you would a piece of bread

Add your ingredients and a drizzle of your favorite salad dressing, roll it up, and eat it!


Note to parents: This is a very fun recipe for the kids when they have friends over or for an after school snack. Present an assortment of items buffet style and let them build their own ‘sandwich.’
