Instructions

For the Wraps

  • In a medium skillet, heat sesame oil on medium heat. Once hot, add garlic, shallots, and ginger. Cook just until shallots begin to soften but are still slightly crunchy. Stir in lentils, vinegar, honey, peanut butter, and soy sauce. While stirring constantly, bring the mixture to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from heat.
  • Spoon 3 or 4 tablespoons of the lentil mixture into each lettuce cup. Top with cucumber, carrot, and cabbage. Sprinkle the green onion on top. Serve with a side of peanut sauce for drizzling or dipping.

For the Peanut Sauce

  • In a small saucepan, heat sesame oil on medium heat. Add the minced shallot and ginger. Cook until shallot is translucent. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. If the mixture is too thick, add additional water. Boil for one minute and remove from heat. Cool slightly and serve alongside Asian vegetable lettuce wraps.
