High Protein Peanut Sauce

I nailed it with this peanut sauce. It is the ultimate topper to these Vietnamese lettuce wraps, that takes them to next level. Sauce lovers and macro counters alike, you get to use a lot!

Traditional Vietnamese spring rolls use rice paper wraps or rice noodles, both of which I love using sometimes. However, in this particular recipe I opted for quinoa for the extra fiber and protein, and I love how it bends to the flavors of the dish. I also prepped this ahead of time, so it was cooled and ready to go. 

You do you girlfriend, but buying cooked shrimp cocktail for this one is my go to! Try it, if you haven’t and thank me later.

 Vegetable options are endless, so making different combinations each time with a new variety or adding in some fruit like mango really change the flavor profile and makes this meal easy to rotate in. Don’t be afraid to mix it up or use what you have in your fridge. Chopping ahead of time is a time savor and perfect for meal prep. Then you can simply assemble when you are ready to eat.

Switch Things Up:

Looking for some other ideas to try? Cabbage, peppers, lettuce variety, sprouts, mango, and strawberries are all favorites. 

Or add in rice noodles or wrap in up in a rice paper
