I just love restaurant-quality meals that are simple enough to make at home, and this one is no exception! This is a fun twist on lettuce wraps that will impress your family (and company) for sure! Plus, since lentils are one of the fastest cooking pulses (see below) and it takes just minutes to cook shrimp, this could easily be a weeknight meal.
Sponsor Shoutout: Pulses
Until recently, I did not realize that the word “pulses” was a common international term for the family of legumes that includes dry peas, beans, lentils, and chickpeas. It’s funny to learn something new about a food group we’ve loved and enjoyed for many years. Pulses are great for so many reasons. First of all, they are a real food! And they’re also easily accessible, affordable, and sustainable. As a Pulses Ambassador (in honor of the UN naming 2016 the International Year of Pulses to increase awareness around the benefits of pulses), I’m proud to include this recipe in a great little series with so many other yummy dishes. Take the Pulse Pledge to formally commit to adding pulses into your weekly meals!
