Edamame and Quinoa Lettuce Wraps with Soy Garlic Chili Sauce

These lettuce wraps are fresh and light yet very satisfying. Filled with quinoa, edamame, red pepper and shredded carrots, these delicious lettuce wraps then get drizzled with a wonderful soy garlic chili sauce.  If your kids are anything like mine, they just love food they can "fill and wrap" themselves.

  3. This looks so good. I'm always looking for new ways to use quinoa, and I'm pretty sure I have most of these ingredients on hand. I may just be making this some time this week.

  4. Wow these do look beautiful. Fresh and healthy. Love that dipping sauce I could really eat one right now.

  5. These look so unbelievably good! I've seen plenty of chicken lettuce wraps before, but I really like the idea of using edamame and quinoa here. Thanks for linking this up to my hop!
