Equipment

  • Parchment Paper

Ingredients
  

  • 5-8 Pieces Leafy Green Lettuce of Choice I prefer gree leaf
  • Toppings of Choice

Instructions
 

  • Place a large piece of parchment paper down.
  • Add the lettuce of choice in an overlapping fashion on top of the parchment paper.
  • Layer your ingredients down the center of the lettuce.
  • Take the edge of the parchment paper and fold it over the wrap, so the side of the lettuce starts to roll tucking it under the opposite side of the lettuce.
  • Tightly roll the lettuce wrap, adjusting the parchment paper as needed.
  • Once you have about half of the lettuce wrap rolled up, fold in the parchment paper's side pieces to seal the ends like a big envelope.
  • Continue rolling the wrap in the parchment paper until it is completely wrapped.
  • Cut the lettuce wrap in half at an angle in the center and enjoy!

Notes

Size of Parchment Paper – Keep your parchment paper big enough to layout your wrap but not too big. The more parchment paper you have, the harder it will be to unwrap the sandwich when you are ready to eat it. Trust me, no one wants to bite into parchment paper. Also, always place your ingredients on the parchment paper at an angle. This will help you use less while still being able to secure the wrap.
Overlap the Lettuce – Making sure your lettuce leaves are large and overlapping at the edges will help to make sure your sandwich stays together once it is wrapped. Any places there are gaps will lead to structure areas in your sandwich.
Layer your ingredients – When it comes to lettuce-wrapped sandwiches, it’s all about the layers. You don’t want your sauce dripping out the side while you are holding it.
Start with layering drier ingredients on top of the lettuce, work your way to the sauce, and then finish with more of the dry ingredients on top before you roll. This will keep the sauce and wetter ingredients (like tomatoes) to the center of the finished sandwich.
