Oh My Veggies
For the sesame ginger sauce:
I like to use low sodium
pure maple syrup
+ 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
fresh grated ginger
For the lettuce wraps:
diced red pepper
diced snow peas
7 ounce package tempeh, crumbled
of lettuce that will make a good wrap
such as romaine or butter
Optional garnishes: diced cashews
Place all of the sesame ginger sauce ingredients into a small bowl and whisk until combined.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the carrot, red pepper and peas. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, and then add the crumbled tempeh.
Continue to cook for another 3 minutes and then pour in the sauce. Stir until everything is combined and cook until sauce is thickened, 7-10 minutes.
Let the mixture cool for a few minutes (to avoid wilting the lettuce), and then spoon the mixture into lettuce cups. Garnish with cashews and green onions, if desired.
