Chicken Sausage Lettuce Tacos

This is a recipe I came up with last week in an effort to consume more vegetables. I have to be honest, I don't like chewing on carrot sticks and sometimes getting enough veggies seems like a burden, so recipes like these are helpful. My kids thought the lettuce wraps looked more like Tacos, hence the name! I can say that I really enjoyed eating much so that I made them for my lunch three times this week!

Chicken Sausage Lettuce Tacos

4 Chicken Sausage Links, chopped
8 Romaine Heart Lettuce Leaves
4 Carrots, peeled and chopped
1 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Large Sweet Onion, chopped
2 Heads of Broccoli, chopped
Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper
Cooking Spray

Coat skillet with cooking spray and heat. Place all chopped ingredients in skillet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté the mixture until onions are transparent. The carrots and broccoli will still have a slight crunch to them. Rinse lettuce leaves and pat dry. Divide veggie-sausage mixture among the lettuce leaves and serve. Top with soy sauce, if desired. Serves 4.
