In the spirit of the upcoming Healthy Challenge I made a quick dinner tonight from things in the refrigerator. This is another one of those recipes that is more of a method than an actual recipe. For dinner tonight we had two types of lettuce wraps.
The first wrap was Mexican inspired. I smeared some fat-free hummus in a romaine leaf. Then I added red pepper strips, cucumber slices, salsa, cilantro and sliced black olive. Both the hubby I really liked this. It is very much like our usual daily lunch salad, but somehow picking it up like a sandwich makes it seem different.
The second wrap I am calling the pizza wrap. Again I used romaine leaves to hold the sun-dried tomato cheeze and sun-dried tomato marinara. I sprinkled a little oregano on top.
These lettuce wraps tasted very different. The hubby liked the Mexican version better and I preferred the pizza version. Both were on the table in less than 5 minutes, including the time to photograph the dish. These would make a great lunch dish to be filled just before serving. Additionally, this would be a great way to have a raw pizza without a dehydrator.
For now I am off to spend some time with my hubby. I hope you all have a great evening.
