How to make Thai Lettuce Wraps (Plant-Based)

Hi there I'm Jen from Simple Green Smoothies, and today we are going to make an Asian fusion dish that's called our Thai Lettuce Wraps

This is my take on the traditional Chinese appetizer that I used to get as a kid, and we're making it a plant based upgrade, and it is delicious So, you can follow along or I'm going to show you how to do everything You can also go to our blog which we've included a link in our description for you to get the full recipe as well I hope you enjoy it This recipe does require a lot of prep work, but it's because the flavors are so delicious in it and we're layering them upon each other

So, you're going to want to make it One of the best things about it is you're only going to use one skillet and put everything in it, so clean up is very easy The first thing you need to do is warm a large skillet over medium-high heat, and then we're going to add some oil and heat until it's shimmery Then, you're going to toss in the celery and shallots, and cook for about three to five minutes Add in the ginger and the garlic, and cook for another one to two minutes

Next, you're going to stir in the mushrooms, and I want you to cook them and make sure you're stirring occasionally so that they start to brown nicely Some of the water will release from the mushrooms, and you're going to want to cook it long enough for it to evaporate Stir in the lime juice, the tamari, and also the coconut sugar, and the rice vinegar Add in the walnuts, and cook for another one to two minutes just to toast them nicely Now, we're going to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly

Now, we're going to remove it from heat and add a couple more ingredients One is our crushed rep pepper That'll give it a little bit of spice Then, were going to do our herbs which are a mixture of fresh mint and cilantro, and stir it all together Mmm

This is a very savory tasty dish I'm already drooling All right Now, we're ready So, I'm going to take my butter lettuce leaves which are the shell that we're using

They are fresh It is instead of using taco shells or anything like that We're doing this, and just add a little bit of the meat to it which is actually mushrooms We're going to top it with some cashews, some carrots, and a little bit of green onion, also known as scallions And, then if you really like it, you can even do a squeeze of lime juice

All right, and there you have it This is your Thai Lettuce Wrap Thank you so much for watching the video I hope that you enjoyed seeing how simple it can be to make Thai Lettuce Wraps at home It takes a little bit of prep work, but after that you're good to go
