Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps

My body was craving vegetables and I’m sick to death of soup. I normally make my lettuce wraps with beef, chicken or turkey, but cauliflower and broccoli made an amazing substitute.


2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil

2 cups Cauliflower; chopped

2 cups Broccoli; chopped

1 cup Carrot; chopped

1 cup Leek; chopped

1 cup Onion; chopped

½ cup Celery; chopped

½ cup Bell Pepper; cored and chopped

3 cloves fresh Garlic; minced

½ teaspoon fresh Ginger; grated

½ cup Water Chestnuts; chopped

½ teaspoon Ginger Powder

1 teaspoon Garlic Powder

Salt and Pepper to taste


1 ½ cups Teriyaki Sauce

6 Lettuce Leaves; rinsed

½ cup toasted Cashews; chopped

2 Tablespoons Green Onion; chopped

1 teaspoon Sesame Seeds

3 cups cooked Rice

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and drizzle in the sesame oil. Add all of the chopped vegetables, ginger and garlic, then season with the garlic powder, ginger powder, salt and pepper.
  2. Sauté the vegetables until tender, then reduce the heat to medium-low and pour in the Teriyaki Sauce. Toss to coat and cover, simmering for 10 minutes.
  3. Top the lettuce leaves with the cooked rice and vegetable filling. Garnish with Sesame seeds, toasted cashews and green onions.
  4. Enjoy!
