THE BEST BUTTER LETTUCE WRAPS
I am so excited to share the tastiest lettuce wraps I’ve ever created. Seriously. One of my favorite meals my mom makes is her homemade lettuce wraps. They’re fresh, filling and oh so flavorful. It’s kinda incredible how you can turn such simple ingredients into something so savory. Can we say #UmamiOverload?!

OMG you guys. So I love how you can throw practically anything in lettuce wraps, but am sooo pleased with how the flavor of these turned out! If you want to add more protein to this vegetarian-friendly meal, scrambled up some eggs, throw in some soybeans or mix in some lean ground meat (like chicken, turkey or ground beef).
