Steam rice according to package directions. Trim ends off of the Romaine and wash and set aside to dry. Chop the mushrooms, water chestnuts, onion, ginger, and garlic then add them all to a pan over medium high heat and allow them to cook down until soft. While the filling cooks down make the sauce in a small bowl. Add all the sauce ingredients and mix well. Once the mushrooms are cooked down add the sauce to the pan and saute the mushroom mixture another 2-3 minutes then turn off the heat. Assemble lettuce wraps and enjoy with a side of steamed rice.

    Made these last night with brown basmati rice on the side and your Thai Peanut sauce for the rice. It was all so delicious and everyone loved these recipes!! I am a new fan and have been “vegan” for a few years now but need to lose weight and eat healthier so I am very grateful to have found you and your amazing recipes and story!!

    These were FANTASTIC!!! I’m eating them as I type this. If anyone can’t find water chestnuts in your local stores, you can use jicama as a substitute like I did. Worked perfectly !!!

    I made these and added quinoa to the mix for protein. Delicious!

    These were so easy and so tasty – just like all your recipes. I really like it when I can make a meal for non-vegans and they don’t miss the meat (or the saturated fats). This recipe will definitely be made again. Thank you!

    I tried it today and only one “issue”. The mushroom and water chestnut mix got really wet while cooking so when I added the sauce, it was very diluted and watery. It would not work in a wrap but was good over rice. How to avoid it getting so watery? thanks
