Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 red bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 inch knob ginger root peeled and minced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 carrot peeled and sliced into thin strips

For the Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce lite, optional tamari or coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds toasted
  • 1/16 teaspoon cayenne pepper optional

For Serving

  • 6 butter lettuce leaves large, washed and dried

Instructions

  • Toast sesame seeds in a dry pan over low to medium heat for 1- 2 minutes, stirring constantly just until golden and fragrant. Set aside.

For the Dressing
