Vegan Kimchi Lettuce Wraps

Vegan Kimchi Lettuce Wraps will have your gut begging for more! Enjoy two large plates for only 300 calories. It does NOT just taste like water. This is the epitome of a light summer lunch. Or a finger-friendly snack, depending on your appetite. Mine’s huge if you didn’t already catch that.

Vegan Kimchi Lettuce Wraps

Servings are adjustable


  • 10-12 large romaine lettuce leaves (deep/long enough to stuff)
  • 3 oz. vegan kimchi
  • 1/2 cup cold edamame*
  • 3 oz. (100g or 1/2 cup) mung bean sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cashews**


  1. Lay your lettuce leaves face up on a plate. Fill with kimchi first, then other ingredients in no particular order.
  2. Drizzle with peanut sauce, sriracha, garlic ginger dressing, or plain ol’ tamari if you are a simple creature.

*Can be thawed from a frozen state OR freshly shelled.

**Nut-free? Sesame seeds work in a pinch.

I hear “Oriental” is politically incorrect. Alrighty then. “Asian” is a simple swap seeing it is easier to pronounce. Any-hoo… my family used to make a mean Oriental Asian Slaw with cabbage, sesame oil, sesame seeds, and those crunchy rice noodle things. Should I re-create it for the blog? I think I will.

Low Sugar Orange Tofu (you can throw this on the wraps to switch up your protein source, FYI!)

  1. Love these kimchi lettuce wraps! Gut health for the win. However, you might want to delete that last part about Asian slaw. It comes across as “stuck in old ways,” and a little annoyed. Just thought you might wanna kno. Other than that, your site is great! Will def refer to friends.
