Vegan BBQ Chik'n Lettuce Cups w/ Avocado Slaw
Every week, during my grocery hauls Sprouts, I always find a new plant based protein to try. This new plant based chick’n, which you can find in the freezer section, from @likemeat is a great meat substitute! Bonus it is non GMO, has 19g of protein, and has a great meat like texture. Summer is almost here and if you are looking for a great summer poolside meal without the heaviness, our BBQ chik'n lettuce cups are a refreshing twist to your classic BBQ chicken sandwich.
