Vegan Chicken Lettuce Wraps


Recipe taken from here.

These didn’t quite end up looking like I imagined, but that was mostly due to me buying the wrong lettuce – you want big sturdy leaves, and I got mini romaines. BUT these still tasted really good, and they only really took a few minutes to pull together.

1 package of Gardein scallopine “chicken”
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 bunch of spring onions, sliced fine
1 tsp minced fresh ginger OR a dash of ground ginger
1/4 c vegan hoisin sauce
1 tbsp honey
1 small splash of mirin
1 small splash of rice vinegar

4 medium carrots, grated
a bunch of large lettuce leaves
cooked rice noodles

Take your Gardein straight out of the freezer and zap it in the microwave for about 30 secs, just to slightly soften it to make it easier to dice – then dice it!

Heat the sesame oil in a pan on med-high, throw in the chicken and garlic and ginger, stir-fry for a few minutes then add the spring onion, stir-fry for another few  minutes, add the mirin and vinegar to deglaze,  then add the hoisin and honey, mix well and remove pan from heat.

To assemble, sprinkle some grated carrot onto the lettuce leaves, pile on the rice noodles and then add the chicken. Eat!
