LUCKY BONES Lettuce Wraps

These plant-powered lettuce wraps made with LUCKY BONES are simple, nutritious, and absolutely delicious.  Quinoa, an abundance of vegetables, and an orange soy twist make for a light lunch or stand-out appetizer.

Of course, preparing the quinoa in LUCKY BONES adds extra flavor and brings this recipe to a whole new level.  The soothing combination of rosemary and bok choy complements the other ingredients perfectly. Not to mention, it is full of wholesome ingredients with gut-cleansing health benefits!

To cook the vegetables, simply sauté for a few minutes and remove them from the heat before they are fully tender.  This retains a delicious little crunch that balances out the fluffy quinoa. Soy sauce, ginger, orange, and maple syrup round out the filling with an Asian, citrus punch.
