This Asian-inspired appetizer uses a lettuce leaf to hold a flavorful filling of crunchy and colorful vegetables.
20 min.prep time
60 min.total time
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 cup chopped red and/or green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic
1 (8-ounce) can bamboo shoots, chopped
1 (8-ounce) can water chestnuts, chopped
1 (3.5-ounce) package shiitake mushrooms, chopped
1 cup coleslaw mix
24 Bibb lettuce leaves (2 heads)
Rather than making individual wraps, serve filling, sauce and lettuce leaves in separate containers. This will allow guests to make their own lettuce wraps.
Use Bibb or Boston lettuce to roll up this oriental vegetable filling because it is not as crisp and will roll up easily.
