Ground pork lettuce wraps

We love these low carb Asian lettuce wraps!

Lettuce wraps are a delicious, light, and healthy meal! Family-friendly too! They can also be served as an appetizer.

I wanted a slightly healthier lettuce wrap recipe with less sugar, so I started messing around with paleo and low carb Asian lettuce wraps. Now I get to share my favorite healthy Asian lettuce wraps recipe with you!

Cauliflower rice cooking in a skillet

Ingredients

The ingredients are pretty simple, but there’s still a lot of good flavor going on. And it all cooks quickly in one large skilletready in less than 30 minutes! Woohoo!

My local grocery store sells frozen riced cauliflower and it is crazy easy to use. Just open the bag and dump it into the skillet. The moisture from it being frozen cooks right off!

I like the riced cauliflower in lettuce wraps because no one can really tell that it is even in there. Might as well get some more veggies in there, right?! And it is a great filler to help the mixture serve more people. However, the cauliflower is optional and the lettuce wraps taste great without it too.

In case you’re wondering about the ginger paste mentioned in the recipe…I often use it in place of fresh ginger. It is 1:1 substitution and it is easy. No need to peel and grate! Find it in the fresh herbs area at most grocery stores.

The type of lettuce doesn’t really matter as long as you can put the filling on it and wrap it up or use the lettuce leaf like a taco shell of sorts. If you can’t find Bib, Boston, or Butter lettuce, feel free to use Romaine leaves or iceberg lettuce. Some of my kids actually like the Romaine lettuce leaves the best!

P.S. If you don’t have toasted sesame oil, regular sesame oil works well too.

Final Thoughts

I really love these healthy Asian lettuce wraps. They’re quick to prepare, fun to eat, and best of all they’re filled with healthy ingredients. Great for family dinners or even large gatherings with friends.

Also, even though these lettuce wraps are low in carbs, they do pack quite a bit of protein into each serving so they’ll keep you full! Enjoy!
