Veggies, herbs, avocado, hemp, spicy homemade cashew cheese and greens—these are the makings of a delicious plant-based meal. Lettuce wraps can be made with any of your favorite toppings, but we recommend this radish-cabbage combo to start out. It’s simple, healthy and totally flavorful! The ingredients make one large wrap, so be sure to increase the measurements to serve more.
