These Vegan Lettuce Wraps are fresh and crispy with an umami flavoured meaty, vegetable filling and a delicious and simple asian plum dipping sauce. Easy and healthy ingredients, ready in 20 minutes or less!
Easy and Healthy Vegan lettuce wraps that taste better than pf Changs! Woot, Woot I’m in!
These Lettuce Wraps are very similar to the pork version I used to make, and taste just as good.
The flavour of these lettuce wraps is unbelievably good!! Meatless vegan crumbles (I used Gardein Beefless Ground), little bites of ginger, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, green onions and the most delicious sesame hoisin sauce, cooked together and topped on a fresh crispy piece of lettuce. Garnished with carrots and mint and drizzled with asian plum sauce! Yes please!
Trust me you will want to make these pronto! They’re fabulous! And easy. I’ve included an option to use tofu instead of meatless crumbles if you prefer.
These lettuce wraps are protein packed and hearty enough for a light meal or serve as an appetizer!
My favourite lettuce for this recipe is romaine or iceberg, but you could use butter lettuce or add the veggie filling to pasta, rice or rice noodles! Lots of choices for sure!
How to cut lettuce for lettuce wraps:
- For Romaine: cut off the core at the end of the romaine, pull apart leaves and use the inner lettuce leaves (medium and small)
- For Iceberg: holding the lettuce with the core side facing the counter. Wack the head of lettuce gently on the counter a few times. Pull out the core. Now with core side up, hold under running water until the lettuce fills up with water and the leaves start to seperate.
How to make 20 Minute Vegan Lettuce Wraps:
First prep your veggies and sauces.
Preheat a large non stick skillet to medium high heat. Add the oil and frozen meat crumbles. Cook for 2-3 minutes until crumbles are warmed through. If using tofu, lightly press the tofu and crumble into the skillet with the oil and cook for 10-15 minutes, until slightly crispy.
Now add the ginger and onions and cook for 2 minutes. If you find the pan is to hot, turn down to medium heat.
Add the water chestnuts and bamboo shoots and cook, stirring until everything is hot.
Remove from heat and stir in the sesame hoisin sauce.
Add the meat mixture to the lettuce cups and garnish with grated carrot, fresh chopped mint and drizzle with the asian plum sauce. Enjoy!
These lettuce wraps can be served hot or cold
