And That's a (Dinner) Wrap!!

I live under the illusion that somehow if my meal comes in wrap form, it has greater nutritional value. Maybe I didn't spend enough money on my undergrad to critically engage with this fallacy in my thinking. In any case, wraps are fun for changing up the daily monotony of dinnertime. Check out these 5 tasty weeknight wraps.

1. Merguez Wraps with Pickled Cabbage, Yogurt & Tahini

Sausages are a great way to get a flavorful meal on the table faster then you can say sauseech. Spiced lamb merguez sausages get topped with tender pickled cabbage and a smooth tahini dressing. For a special wrap we used Hot Bread Kitchen’s hand stretched M’smen, a flaky Moroccan flatbread. Warmed up a little, it has a delicious buttery flavor. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

2. Sesame Beef Lettuce Wraps with Rice

These lettuce cups are an explosion of flavor thanks to a rich marinade made with sesame, tamari, honey, and ginger. Sirloin filets are just the right kind of tender so you can easily bite into the cups. Warm short-grain rice will soak up the extra sauce. Don’t be afraid to use your fingers and get messy when assembling these. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

3. Chicken Stir–Fry Wraps with Bell Peppers and Boston Lettuce

We’re all about a stir-fry you can eat with your hands, and this recipe keeps it light and healthy for busy weeknights. Boston lettuce is a perfectly crisp vessel for tender strips of chicken and red bell pepper that are tossed in a flavorful ginger-tamari sauce. Make sure to sprinkle with chopped peanuts for a crunchy finish. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

4. Vietnamese Fish Lettuce Wraps with Peanuts and Sushi Rice

Crisp lettuce wraps are the perfect foil for big, bold flavors. We use tender, flaky, quick-cooking fish for the filling, and amp it up with a curry spice blend. The nuoc cham sauce—fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, water, and chili garlic sauce—is ideal for dipping or drizzling. Pile on peanuts, cilantro, and fried shallots at the table for an interactive meal that lets everyone choose their flavors. Cook, relax, and enjoy!

5. Thai Shrimp Lettuce Wrap Bowls with Mint, Sushi Rice, and Peanuts

Lettuce wraps are a surefire way to satisfy take-out cravings, but without any of the heaviness! Inspired by the perfectly balanced flavors of Thai cuisine, the addictive sauce is sweet, salty, and tart, and coats tender US Gulf shrimp. The shrimp go on crisp lettuce leaves along with sticky sushi rice, chopped peanuts, and freshly torn mint for a light-as-air dinner that will have you on cloud 9. Cook, relax, and enjoy!
