Asian Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients

  • White Onion

  • Green Onion*

  • Water Chestnut

  • Miso

  • Walnuts

  • Sriracha Sauce

  • Rice Vinegar

  • Tamari Sauce

  • Honey

  • Peanut Butter

  • Bell Pepper

  • Portabella Mushroom

  • Garlic

  • Ginger

  • Carrot

  • Sushi Rice

  • Fresh lettuce leaves*

  • Hoisin Sauce

Heat the olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the onion, bell pepper, and mushroom to the pan; stir to combine and spread the filling out in an even layer so the veggies sauté instead of steam. Cook for 7-8 minutes, stirring once or twice and spreading the filling back out evenly each time. Add the minced ginger and hoisin sauce; stir to combine and cook for 1 minute longer. Stir in the water chestnuts, green onions, and raw walnuts to the pan and cook until the green onions begin to wilt, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

Assemble the Wraps:
Layer lettuce leaves with sushi rice (if using), a heaping spoon full of filling and top with carrot ribbons, cilantro, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
