In my opinion, lettuce is a good replacement for bread, especially when it comes down to making Lettuce Wraps. I love Lettuce Wraps and never feel overly stuffed when I eat them.
That is because they are very healthy and you can get as creative as you wish, stuffing the inside. I decided I wanted to pair peanut butter, bananas and drizzle a little honey over the protein and fruit. And, speaking of protein, peanut butter is a good source of protein. Peanut butter is creamy and good. If you like chunky peanut butter, then choose chunky.
Of course, if you have a peanut allergy, feel free to substitute with another spread or simply do bananas and honey. It is quite tasty that way too. I feel like a scientist in my kitchen. I am always coming up with accidental pairings and sometimes, I even surprise myself with my scientific kitchen fixings.
For these wraps, Romaine lettuce is the lettuce I chose to use. You can choose a variety of different lettuces until you find one that you like. There are so many choices today and it can get quite confusing to choose between Bibb, Boston, Iceberg, Romaine, Red Leaf, and numerous others. No wonder you see so many patrons just standing in the produce aisle of the grocery store, befuddled as to what lettuce to choose. Whenever in doubt, go with Romaine. Too many choices can be confusing and I just want to make your lettuce choice a lot easier.
The lettuce wraps will last a day. It is best to eat them when you make them because once the bananas are sliced and put in the refrigerator, they will brown. My suggestion is to make just the right portion that you know you will eat. You can always make more later. Eat Well!
