  • Pour vegetable broth and water into the saucepan; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, place a cover on the saucepan, and cook rice at a simmer until tender and the liquid is absorbed, 10 to 15 minutes. Fluff rice and cook 1 to 2 minutes more.

  • Scoop rice mixture into lettuce leaves. Season with soy sauce or lime juice, as desired.
