Which Lettuce Is Best For Wraps?

Iceberg, Romaine, and Boston are the variety of lettuce which works pretty well for lettuce wraps. Among these three kinds of lettuce, Romaine lettuce is my favorite. Romaine lettuce is long, slightly bitter leaves and sturdy, sweeter centers, romaine provides a robust crunch to any meal. It is a great source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, and iron. It also contains magnesium and calcium.

In my recipe, I have made three types of filling for the lettuce wraps.

Cottage cheese filling it has fresh cottage cheese with sauce and veggies like tomato and cucumber. It is a refreshing filling that is drizzled on the veggies and cottage cheese. It is flavored with garlic, pepper, and chili.

Mushroom filling it has stir-fried mushrooms with onions and colorful veggies. This filling is cooked as it consists of mushrooms which can not be eaten raw. With a drop of olive oil, it is stir-fried and garnished with freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Corn filling has boiled corns with a salsa made from onion, tomato, and cucumber. It has a drizzle of honey sauce to balance the flavor. It is a crunchy filling for the wraps and has a tangy flavor.
