Halloumi Lettuce Wrap (Vegetarian, Gluten, Grain Free & Low Carb)

This recipe is for a fresh, light and super delicious Halloumi Lettuce Wrap. This wrap only takes 10 minutes to make and requires a hand full of ingredients. This halloumi wrap is perfect to serve for lunch, afternoon snack or to bring along on a picnic or trip. It is both vegetarian, gluten, grain free and low carb.

A good wrap is both one of my favorite lunch options and also such a great thing to make when you need to bring lunch with you. But I’ve never been a big fan of tortilla bread. It quite bland and they always come in big packages with at least 6 pieces. So if I want to make 1-2 wraps I really don’t know what to make with the rest of them.. So they go to waste. To avoid this I started using salad/lettuce leafs instead of tortillas. I always have lettuce at home, so I can just pick as many leafs as I need for the wrap, and then use the rest of it for other things without it going to waste like the tortilla bread would have. I love the fact that using lettuce makes the wrap so much crunchier. Not to mention that it doesn’t get soggy as a tortilla wrap can get if you don’t eat it right away. This wrap is filled with crunchy vegetables, a fresh and light yoghurt dressing and delicious salty halloumi. It is both vegetarian, gluten, grain free and low carb.

A few tips:

  • Use big salad/lettuce leafs and make sure to lay them overlapping each other to avoid the wrap from breaking or leaking the ingredients.
  • I like to wrap the lettuce wrap in some paper to make it easier to eat and bring along.
  • This wrap can be prepared in advance, but I would recommend you not to prepare it more than 12 hours before eating it. You don’t want the vegetables to get soggy and old.
  • Store it in the fridge until eating.
