Vegan Asian Lettuce Wrap | Recipe


This wrap was inspired by the delicious masterpiece that is PF Chang's Lettuce Wrap. I absolutely LOVE their lettuce wrap which is why I had to come up with a vegan rendition. This recipe consists of vegan substitutes, but you can always replace the "fake meat" with whatever tickles your fancy. 


This recipe serves about 4 dishes

MIXTURE
(The inside bits)

What You'll Need:
1 cup Brown Rice, cooked
2 cups Fake Meat (I used Boca Ground Crumbles)
1/2 Onion, minced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper
2 1/2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon Peanut Butter
1/2 tablespoon Water
2 teaspoons Hot Sauce
1/2 cup Carrots, shredded
1/2 of a 8 oz. can of Sliced Water Chestnuts, drained and chopped
1/4 cup Peanuts, chopped

What You'll Need To Do:
Heat "meat", onions, and garlic on skillet
Add salt and pepper to taste
In a separate bowl, combine soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, peanut butter, water, and hot sauce
Remove "meat" mixture from heat
Mix together the "meat" mixture, liquid combo, carrots, water chestnuts, peanuts and brown rice in a bowl 


SAUCE
(The juicy bit)

What You'll Need:
1/4 cup Vegan Cane Sugar
1/2 cup Water
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Rice Vinegar
2 tablespoons Ketchup
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/8 teaspoon Sesame Oil
Dash of Hot Sauce

What You'll Need To Do:
Combine all the above ingredients together in a bowl
Depending on your taste buds, add as much hot sauce as your little heart desires


WRAP IT ALL UP
(The fun bit)

What You'll Need:
Head of Iceberg Lettuce
Mixture
Sauce

What You'll Need To Do:
Peal off individual layers of lettuce
Wash lettuce
Dry Lettuce
Use lettuce as wrap and fill with mixture
Drizzle on the special sauce
Wrap it up
ENJOY!


 VIOLA!
You just made a 4 star restaurant's most famous dish in the comfort of your own kitchen!


Also, had to include a picture of me MASTERING the chop sticks at PF Changs. That is all.

    1. Boca is a brand that makes vegan/vegetarian pre-made frozen substitutes for meat. Their ground crumbles are a substitute for ground meat. There are a lot of different brands that have the same sort of products.
      And thank you so so so much for thinking I'm funny!
