Recipe

If you have been following the blog and especially meal plans for any amount of time you know that I have a real soft spot for lettuce wraps of all kinds. It is one of my favorite ways to reinvent leftovers and something I eat on a weekly basis year round. Today's recipe originated from a leftover mash-up of quinoa, some Asian stir-fry, and a quick sauce of Hoisin and Sriracha. I loved it so much I set out to make it a complete recipe inspired by some of my favorite Chicken Lettuce Wraps.
