Slimming Superfood Recipe: Artichoke-and-Beef Lettuce Wraps

Beef Lettuce Wraps Recipe

It may come as a shock, but fruit and veggies aren’t the only good-for-you food options. One surprising superfood to add to your repertoire: beef. Paired here with fresh and crunchy ingredients aplenty—like chickpeas, cucumbers, artichoke and lettuce—you’ve got a meal that not only tastes delish but actually feels it, too. And don’t forget to top it all off with a sprinkling of indulgent (but healthy!) Parm.

Artichoke-and-Beef Lettuce Wraps


  • 1 can (13 oz) artichoke hearts, rinsed and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pound deli roast beef, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons capers, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 16 lettuce leaves (such as butter or romaine)


Place artichokes, beef, zucchini, chickpeas, Parmesan, basil, capers, lemon juice and oil in a bowl; add salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Wrap 1/4 cup of filling in each lettuce leaf and serve.
