Thai Peanut Lettuce Wraps

My favorite appetizer to get at any restaurant are lettuce wraps, but ever since adapting to a gluten-free diet I get a little skeptical ordering from restaurants. Luckily, these Thai Peanut Lettuce Wraps are gluten-free, delicious, and are able to be made from home. This recipe serves 4-6 people, so you are able to share with friends and family.

To make these lettuce wraps you start off by combining the peanut butter, Marukan Lite Seasoned Rice Vinegar, tamari, brown sugar, and garlic. You shake these ingredients together to make the peanut sauce. Then you make the Relish by combining the carrots, onion, Marukan Lite Seasoned Rice Vinegar, tamari, and sesame oil. Then in a medium pan add the garlic, shallots, ginger, and ground turkey or beef and cook for 5 minutes. Then you add some of the peanut sauce and cook until the meat is coated. Then you serve the lettuce wraps with the meat of choice in the lettuce with the relish, peanuts, and garnishes on top. Leave the rest of the peanut sauce on the side to dip the lettuce wraps in.

Give this recipe a try next time you have guests over!
