Notes

 

Can I add meat to this Vegetarian Thai Lettuce Wrap recipe?

That’s totally fine, you can use the same recipe but sub out the tofu and sub in some chicken for your protein. Cook your chicken as you normally would. Dice the cooked chicken and add to the sauce. Then put into your lettuce wraps. It is an easy sub!

Topping your Vegan Lettuce Cups

These cups are topped with sunflower seeds. If you cannot easily digest sunflower seeds as a whole, you are welcome to sub them off.
