Hummus and Veggie Lettuce Boats

Hello, my wonderful readers! Today, I'm going to share a recipe that was my veggie voyage during my gestational diabetes journey. It's a dish that's fresh, flavorful, and absolutely delicious.

Let's set sail with the Hummus and Veggie Lettuce Boats! This dish is a colorful array of fresh veggies nestled in crunchy lettuce leaves and topped with creamy, flavorful hummus. It's a veggie voyage that's perfect for a light lunch or a satisfying snack.

When I was pregnant, I often found myself craving something fresh and flavorful, but with my gestational diabetes, I had to be careful about my food choices. That's when I discovered the magic of the Hummus and Veggie Lettuce Boats. It was like a veggie-packed voyage and the best part? It was completely guilt-free! The balance of fiber from the veggies and protein and healthy fats from the hummus kept my blood sugar levels stable, while the combination of crunchy and creamy satisfied my cravings. It was the perfect solution to my snack-time dilemmas!

When I was dealing with gestational diabetes, this recipe was a game-changer. It's so simple, yet so satisfying. The fresh veggies paired with creamy hummus and wrapped in crunchy lettuce create a combination that's both flavorful and refreshing. Plus, it's quick and easy to prepare, which is a huge bonus when you're dealing with pregnancy fatigue.

  • 4 large lettuce leaves (Romaine or Iceberg work great)
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite hummus
  • A variety of fresh veggies, sliced (I love using bell peppers, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes)
  1. Wash the lettuce leaves and pat them dry

  2. Spread a generous amount of hummus on each lettuce leaf

  3. Top with your favorite sliced veggies

  4. That's it! You're ready to enjoy your veggie-packed delight


Store any leftover hummus and veggie lettuce boats separately. Transfer the hummus to an airtight container and keep the lettuce leaves and vegetable fillings in separate containers in the refrigerator. When you're ready to enjoy the leftovers, assemble the lettuce boats with fresh lettuce leaves, hummus, and vegetable fillings. You can also add additional toppings or drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice for extra flavor.
