As you know, we have a ton of lettuce and need to continue to use it up. So, we thought we should make lettuce wraps! The recipe was based on something I saw in Health magazine years ago and we just used what we had on hand. We also used up some frozen chicken that's been in our freezer for awhile. We are trying to eventually use up all the meats in the freezer so if we want any meat products, we'll have to go buy them.
I marinated the chicken in some soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and sake. The chicken could easily be omitted here or marinade some tempeh or tofu instead. I'll have to try that sometime.
The ingredients in the lettuce wraps were: water chestnuts, garlic scapes (of course), some green tops from an onion plant, red pepper flakes, garlic, hot sauce, radishes and snow peas. They were stir-fried in a sauce similar to the marinade and served on lettuce wraps. Boy were they spicy!
The only thing I would change about this recipe would be the spice level and I'd tone it down just a little bit. Otherwise, they were great!
