It’s hard to believe that a meal made almost entirely of veggies can be such a hit. You’ve got to try these cauliflower rice lettuce wraps!

  • 1 head medium (5-6" dia.) cauliflower
  • 2 1/2 cup mushrooms, brown, Italian, or Crimini
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1 small bell pepper, red
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1/2 cup peanuts


  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1/4 cup vinegar, rice wine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoon peanut butter, all-natural
  • 2 teaspoon ginger root, fresh
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 clove garlic


  • Cut cauliflower into quarters, wash, and grate using a box grater or grater attachment on a food processor. Set aside.
  • Grate carrot and finely chop onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Grate ginger and mince garlic.
  • In a large pan (a wok if possible), saute onions for a few minutes, then add carrot, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Continue sauteing for about 5 minutes, or until veggies are mostly soft.
  • Meanwhile, combine sauce ingredients and whisk together until combined.
  • Add cauliflower to pan and mix well. Add sauce. Saute for 3-4 minutes, or until cauliflower is a little tender and the sauce has bubbled a bit.
  • Serve spoonfuls of cauliflower mixture on lettuce leaves and top with chopped peanuts. If desired, garnish with cilantro, green onions, or even more lime juice.
