Ingredients

  • 8 ounce block of tempeh
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 leaves of butter lettuce
  • 1 medium carrot peeled and julienned
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red cabbage
  • 1 medium red bell pepper sliced
  • peanut sauce
  • 1 stalk of scallions sliced and red pepper flakes for garnish

Instructions

  • Cut the tempeh into 1/2 inch cubes and transfer them to a food processor. Blend the tempeh for about 5 seconds, until you get very small pieces of tempeh.
  • In a bowl, mix the vegetable broth, soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic powder, and ground coriander.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh and the broth mixture. Cook for about 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the liquid has been absorbed, remove the pan from heat.
  • Assemble the lettuce wraps. Fill the lettuce leaves with the carrots, cabbage, red bell pepper, and some of the tempeh. Drizzle peanut sauce over the filling and garnish with sliced scallions and red pepper flakes, if you desire. Serve immediately.
