I’m in a real-deal peanut butter phase lately. I suppose I’m always in a peanut butter phase, but right now it’s a little intense. For instance, this is an example of my day in food:
ALL THE PEANUT BUTTER ALL THE TIME. Send help.
I mean, I have no real qualms about my peanut butter consumption, because YUM and PROTEIN, but I may need to work on my variety.
At least with all that peanut butter I’m getting some veggies. The lettuce wraps I’m sharing with you today are chock-full of vegetable goodness: cauliflower, red and green bell peppers, mushrooms, carrots, and lettuce, oh my!
Cauliflower rice! Who knew? Probably a lot of you, but cauliflower rice is new to me, and I’m kind of in love with it. It adds volume, texture, and nutrients to meals, while keeping the calories low, which means we have more room for sriracha peanut sauce…which is a very good thing.
Once you get the cauliflower shredded (which is super easy if you have a shredding food processor), all you do is sautee your veggies in coconut oil with some lime and soy sauce (or tamari), and then add the cauliflower and cook for a few minutes to soften it up and make it more rice-like. Boil the sauce ingredients for a few minutes to thicken, then throw it all in a crisp lettuce cup.
These lettuce wraps are refreshing and light, with a rich and spicy peanut butter finish. It’s peanut butter love in dinner form.
Veggie-packed lettuce wrapped made with cauliflower rice, seasoned with soy sauce and lime juice, and drizzled with a thick and spicy peanut sauce.

I shredded my cauliflower in a food processor, which made it super quick and easy, but you can use a cheese grater if you don't have a food processor that shreds.
Nutrition information is a rough estimate for 1/6th of the recipe with sauce. Lettuce is not included in the nutrition information, since the number of leaves will vary. Also, it's just lettuce.
