Farmers Market Lettuce Cups

Lettuce cups featuring all of the produce from Monday’s farmers market trip.  These are so easy to throw together for a small lunch or as a quick snack! The recipe is super flexible and it’s meant to utilize ingredients that you might already have in your fridge. If you don’t have cucumbers.. maybe sub carrots. No brussels sprouts? try sweet potato! Not a fan of vegan meat? Throw in some tempeh or tofu instead!
