Garbanzo Beans Lettuce Wraps
This year I made a commitment to cooking more meals with variety. Like every busy family, we had fallen into a comfort zone and heavily relied on a short list of quick go-to recipes. With a very picky nine year old daughter, we weren’t helping her eating habits by only offering meals she already liked. Having a good stocked pantry with versatile foods like S&W Beans and a weekly visit to our farmer’s market makes it easy to incorporate new recipes each week. My Garbanzo Beans Lettuce Wraps recipe is quick to prepare with an alternative protein while easily getting in a serving of veggies packed full of flavor.
S&W Beans has a large variety and are found at your local grocery store. Garbanzo beans quickly became a new family favorite in our home and I’ve used several of the varieties including less sodium, organic and core. The brand has been producing canned beans for over 120 years and provides the highest quality for family meals. Whether it’s a Rice Bowl, One Pan Skillet Enchilada casserole or a pinned recipe you’re replacing the protein with beans, S&W Beans has the right variety to feature in your dinner.
