Up until a few weeks ago I was sure that I hated tempeh. Then I made these tempeh and chickpea sloppy joes and realized I had been missing out on so much! And then I made these sesame ginger tempeh lettuce wraps, and I’m in love!
I eat a lot of tofu, beans, and grains in order to get my protein. While I love all of those ingredients, I’m so happy to have another option to experiment with. If you’re not familiar with tempeh, it’s made from fermented soy beans and it’s sold in a big block, much like tofu, except you don’t have to spend an hour pressing it to get it firm!
Now that we have my newfound love for tempeh out of the way, let’s talk about these delicious lettuce wraps. Even my husband, who can be a little skeptical of my vegetarian concoctions, and my son loved these. I call that a major win!
These sesame ginger tempeh lettuce wraps are packed with veggies, tempeh, and so much flavor. The vegetables and tempeh are cooked together for a few minutes, and then a delicious sesame ginger sauce is added and cooked until it thickens up a bit.
I top them off with some fresh green onion and crunchy cashews. These tempeh lettuce wraps are a great healthy meal that is finished in just 30 minutes!
