Gardein Teriyaki Chick’n Vegan Lettuce Wraps

Today’s recipe is another quick and easy Gardein recipe. If you haven’t noticed, Gardein is a quick option that we love in our house. Sometimes when you’re not in the mood to cook, it’s nice to be able to throw something together quickly that’s still healthy and delicious!

My last Gardein post was pub-fare gone vegan featuring a fishless filet sandwich with vegan coleslaw and tartar sauce, but today’s dish is super healthy, fresh, and lean!  Today’s recipe is for a Gardein Terriaki Chick’n lettuce wrap!

Today’s recipe is super simple, it only requires 1 pan or wok, takes just 20 minutes, and is nutrient-packed! For this dish I’ve combined a few cooked veggies/options to pair with the fresh lettuce in the wrap. This dish is great for lunch or dinner and does well if you’re bringing your lunch to school or work, just keep the lettuce separate from the filling so that the lettuce doesn’t wilt.

These Gardein Terriaki Chick’n Strips are great as is, but if you want to have a little more sauce or put a thai-peanut twist into the mix, consider adding a little almond or peanut butter with a little bit of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or soy sauce. I also like these just over a bed of jasmine rice!
