Vegan Lettuce Wraps

Not sure what to make with all the veggies in you fridge? Well, lettuce wraps it is then! The best part about this super easy dish is you can use anything! These particular lettuce wraps I used cellophane noodles, baby corn, cabbage salad, broccoli sprouts, cashew halves, mango and a carrot tahini salad I threw together.

Carrot Tahini Salad

3 to 4 carrots, peeled (I like to make extra)
1 T tahini 
1 t sesame seeds
1 t garlic powder
1 t parsley
Scallions, thinly diced
1 to 1.5 t toasted sesame oil
Salt and pepper, to taste 

Place everything in a bowl and mix together. You can use the same ingredients and replace the carrots with cucumber instead. 

Cabbage Salad

1 package broccoli slaw mix
1 T sesame oil
3 T peanut sauce or teriyaki sauce 

Nothing to this one. Throw it all in a bowl and mix!

Cellophane Noodles

1 package cellophane noodles
1/2 onion, diced
1 t oil
3 to 4 T soy sauce 
1 t garlic powder
1.4 t ginger
Salt and pepper, to taste

Boil water in medium pot. Turn off Burner and add noddles. Let them soak for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. In large skillet, add oil. Sauté onions until tender and add noddles. Mix in spices and soy sauce. Continue to mix while burner is on medium heat for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. When cooled, add to lettuce as base for you wraps.
