This is one of the first vegan recipes I tried and I stuck with it ever since! It is extremely easy, but tastes so good. Even my meat eater boyfriend loves it! 🙂
The inspiration for these lettuce wraps came from an appetizer I had (before I was vegan) at Cactus Club in Vancouver! It is a spicy chicken lettuce wrap and tastes mindblowingly amazing (no exaggeration). Since I wouldn’t want to live without these for the rest of my life, I knew I had to try to reproduce a vegan version of those wraps!
These noodles were on my menu pretty much once a week when I first went vegan because they are easy to make and pretty tasty. 🙂 You can eat them with a fresh, green salad on the side, or add cooked/ roasted veggies. Roasted green asparagus for instance is delicious with it!
Summer rolls are a popular thing in the vegan community. They are stuffed with fresh veggies and leave lots of room for creativity, although they are not particularly easy to make. Handling the rice paper is a bit tricky if you are dealing with it for the first time, but the colorful fillings will make up for it 😉
