Vegetarian Korean Lettuce Wraps

in #foodie2 months ago

We like to eat healthy so when we can take a recipe and make it vegetarian we will opt for that over the meat version. This recipe is for Korean beef lettuce wraps, but we substituted cauliflower for the red meat.

First, cut the vegetables. We used some garlic, lime, green onion, avocado, cilantro and cauliflower.

Once the cauliflower is cut mic up a the dressing which is say sauce, garlic, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, red pepper flake and ginger.

We made some white rice to add a bit more heft to the wraps as well.

Sauté the cauliflower until it’s sticky with sauce and cooked soft.

Assemble the wraps with lettuce and top with spicy mayo and yum yum sauce. Squeeze a bit of lime to add a bit of acidity to the dish.

As always you can add you own twist to any of these dishes so get creative!

Nice, those look like some good flavors you have there. Minus the cauliflower. I just can't do it. My wife makes a mac and cheese with it that is okay, but when it is obvious like that I just can't handle it. The sauce looks pretty amazing.

Have you tried roasting it? I'm not a huge fan of raw, but roasting and adding sauce transforms it.

I am not sure.

Damn that looks solid!

I have been sliding slowly into avoiding meat and it makes for some great exploration and experimentation to find the right texture to replace it for sure.

I will share this with the veggies in my family and will have to give it a go!

What a healthy, yummy looking dish.

I think I feel better cutting out red meat. We still eat a fair amount of chicken, but when we can the veggie option is better.
