Lettuce Wraps

We had 2 different appetizers for dinner tonight which are reminiscent of what we like to order when eating out but these are much more Paleo friendly. My awesome baked Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings and ground beef Lettuce Wraps sounds like an odd combination but they taste great and are very satisfying! The lettuce wraps are packed with flavor from the combination of coconut aminos and shiitake mushrooms. I added carrots and bamboo shoots to incorporate more vegetables into this meal.

    • Thank you Meg :) I was glad I picked the right head of butter lettuce. For the larger leaves, I ended up rolling the lettuce wraps like a burrito ;)
