Ingredients
Teriyaki Sauce
Mushroom Filling
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 8 oz button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 cup fresh pineapple, diced
  • 1/4 cup roasted cashews
  • 12 Green Butter lettuce leaves
Instructions
  1. Start by making the Teriyaki Sauce. Combine soy sauce, 2 tablespoons water, mirin, maple syrup, garlic, and ginger in a small sauce pot. Bring to boil. 

  2. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine remaining 1 tablespoon of water with cornstarch. Mix together until the cornstarch is dissolved. 

  3. Add cornstarch/water mixture to the sauce. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes, until sauce is thick and coats the back of the spoon. Remove from heat and set aside. 

  4. Place a large skillet over medium heat. Add sesame oil. Once the oil is hot, add onions and sauté for 5 minutes, until onions are translucent and fragrant. Stir in bell pepper and mushroom and sauté for 5-7 minutes more until vegetables are cooked all the way through. Stir in cashews and pineapple.

  5. Remove from heat and stir in Teriyaki Sauce, evenly coating the vegetables.

  6. Gently remove 12 Green Butter lettuce leaves from the lettuce head and pat off any excess liquid. 

  7. To assemble, place about 3 tablespoons of filling in each lettuce wrap. Serve immediately. 

Recipe Notes

These lettuce wraps should be eaten within a couple hours of assembling them. However, if you are prepping for a party, you can make this filling a day or two ahead of time and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Once you are ready to serve, just quickly reheat the filling and assemble.
