Number of Servings: 4


    16 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves
    1 pkg Smart Ground soy crumbles
    1 tablespoon cooking oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1/4 cup hoisin sauce
    2 teaspoons minced pickled ginger
    1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
    Asian chile pepper sauce (optional)
    1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
    1 bunch green onions, chopped
    2 teaspoons Asian (dark) sesame oil


Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry, being careful not tear them. Set aside.
Add olive oil and cook the onion in medium skillet, stirring frequently. Add the garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chile pepper sauce to the onions, and stir. Stir in chopped water chestnuts, green onions, sesame oil, and soy crumbles; continue cooking until the onions just begin to wilt, about 2 minutes.
Arrange lettuce leaves around the outer edge of a large serving platter, and pile meat mixture in the center. To serve, allow each person to spoon a portion of the meat into a lettuce leaf. Wrap the lettuce around the meat like a burrito, and enjoy!
