The filling for these tasty lettuce wraps can be served in a variety of ways:

Fresh pineapple blends with the flavors in this recipe too so you might consider serving some on the side or as a topper to your wraps.

 

The Thai filling is prepared in a large skillet with only one tablespoon of oil. Of course, you can leave the oil out, but I use a garlic-infused oil so it provides some extra flavor, which is especially nice if you can’t have garlic, for example, if you are following a SIBO or Low FODMAP food plan like me.
