Putting it all together:

Lay flat butter lettuce leaf. Top with veggies. Top with noodles. Top with sauce. Top with tofu. Roll like a burrito and enjoy! 🙂

This is a Swati Original Recipe. It was mildly inspired by the dish at Cheesecake Factory. This is not a copy of that recipe, however, it is just how the recipe evolved with our personal family preferences.

    • It really is – I like it more than eating salads, and somehow it’s more filling. (There’s a new diet book that says if you eat things slowly, even if you eat the same amount, you will lose weight – I think the wrap style forces you to eat slowly, so you digest more of the nutrients, and your body by working for a longer time to digest the food just naturally burns more fat).
