I asked my sister Shana, "what are some of your favorite dishes that I make for you?" One of them was the Asian lettuce wraps, full of flavor, easy to make and healthy. In searching for a dish to make for my boss that just had a little baby girl, I thought these would be delicious, healthy and easy to reheat. Check out my recipe.....
