Veggie Lettuce Wraps

Who doesn't love lettuce wraps?  You can make healthy, delicious lettuce wraps right at home!  No meat in this dish, but richly satisfying and full of flavor with veggies, garlic, and mushrooms.  You can experiment with different veggies or even add tofu.  The key is to dice everything very fine.  If you have a food processor, even better.  This recipe is for two, but can easily be doubled for your family. 

1 container of mushrooms, about 2 cups (I used baby bellas), diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
4 green onions (scallions), diced
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
1- 8oz. can water chestnuts, diced
2 garlic cloves, diced
1 T sesame oil
1 T canola oil
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 T plum sauce (found in Asian section of grocery store)
pinch of sea salt and pepper
Bib lettuce (or red or green leaf, whatever you have)

Heat both oils in a large saute pan.  Cook carrots and mushrooms, with salt and pepper, for about 8 minutes.  Add in the red bell pepper, onions, water chestnuts, and garlic and cook for a few more minutes.  Add the soy sauce and plum sauce, stir and warm through.  Serve with lettuce.  Pig out!
