Colorful Veggie Lettuce Wraps Recipe

These colourful and tasty vegetable lettuce wraps are good for you. This recipe makes a great snack or light meal. It's easy to make gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan (see notes).

– 2 heads of butter lettuce (also called Boston or Bibb lettuce) – 1 ½ cups (12 ounces) edamame hummus (plain hummus is good, too) – 3 cups very thinly sliced crisp vegetables (I like 1 cup each purple cabbage, carrot and radish) – ¼ cup rice vinegar – ¼ teaspoon salt – 4 ½ ounces soba noodles* – ¾ cup thinly sliced green onions (from about 1 small bunch) – 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, preferably black, plus a few more for garnish – 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce* – 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil


Step 1


Boil salted water for soba noodles. Remove about 12 intact lettuce leaves from your heads and set aside (save the smaller leaves for a salad).

Step 2

Throw the sliced vegetables, vinegar, and salt in a medium bowl and mix. Toss the mixture occasionally for at least 10 minutes to marinate.

Step 3

Cook soba noodles for 4 minutes or until al dente, per package instructions. Drain and return noodles to pot off heat. Stir in green onions, sesame seeds, tamari, and sesame oil. Set aside.

Step 4

Spread hummus in the centre of lettuce leaves to make lettuce wraps. Add a few soba noodles and pickled vegetables. For extra sesame seeds, sprinkle lightly and enjoy!
