Lettuce Wraps

1 package of veggie ground round (this product is  not gluten-free as it contains wheat protein)

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp ginger, grated

1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder

1/4 cup hoisin sauce

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp Asian chili sauce

Heat a frypan over medium heat and put the veggie ground round in.  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir and heat through.  Add a bit of water is necessary to keep the mixture moist.

Sliver up some green onions, cucumber and red peppers like so:

On a nice big piece of lettuce:

place a big spoonful of the ground round mixture, add some red peppers, cucumbers and green onions, roll up and eat.  Yum!

I want to explore using Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP) in my cooking rather than the pre-made veggie ground round.  That way I can control the ingredients. If you have any recipes using TVP please post or link them in the comments.  Thanks.

    Did you grow some of these veggies? Your pics display freshness. I like this new blog site overall. I like how you take photos of the steps and ingredients. Also the words being displayed in the colour it states. Your personal pic is not too shabby either 😉
