Mediterranean Diet- Crisp Lamb Lettuce Wraps

Mediterranean Diet-Crisp Lamb Lettuce Wraps @livligahome
It is always nice to find recipes that provide an alternative to our carbohydrate-centric meals. I thought this Crisp Lamb Lettuce Wrap (158/cal) would be a fun recipe to try. It has all sorts of wonderful ingredients from fresh tomato and cucumber to mint and cinnamon. To me it is an appealing springtime dinner. It may not look as hardy as it actually is. We were remarkably full after eating our two wraps.

The sauce also taught me something new. You combine equal amounts of store-bought hummus and fat-free Greek yogurt. It was delicious, a little lighter than hummus on its own and I am sure less calories per bite. I think I am going to do this for when I offer a hummus dip with veggies for an appetizer from now on. I am counting on it being a big hit.

We completed the meal with a side dish of Morrocan Spiced Oranges (167/cal; see last weeks blog review) for a total calorie count of 325. It was a big hit and a definite repeat.
