Lettuce Wraps

If you're watching your carb count, sandwiches and tortilla wraps probably aren't high on your list of mealtime options. Enter the lettuce wrap. A perennial favorite among health-conscious Asian food lovers, lettuce wraps are often filled with spicy meat, soy and other seasonings. If you have leftover chicken, beef, pork or turkey -- or a store-bought rotisserie bird -- shred the meat and add in some grated carrots and chopped water chestnuts. Toss that together with soy sauce, chili paste, chopped peanuts or cashews, ginger and cilantro, and wrap it all in big leaves of lettuce. It doesn't get much easier -- or yummier -- than that.
