For the "Chicken" Filling:

  • 1 package (about 14 oz) of plant-based "chicken" (such as soy or pea protein-based)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped

  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce or tamari (gluten-free option)

  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce (look for a low-sugar or sugar-free option)

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 green onions, sliced (for garnish)

For the Lettuce Wraps:

  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce or butter lettuce, washed and leaves separated


  1. Prepare the "Chicken" Filling:

    • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

    • Add the chopped onions and garlic, sautéing until softened and lightly browned.

    • Add the plant-based "chicken" to the skillet, breaking it apart with a spatula, and cook until it starts to brown.

    • Stir in the chopped red and yellow bell peppers, and shredded carrots. Cook for another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are slightly tender.

    • In a small bowl, mix the low-sodium soy sauce (or tamari), hoisin sauce, toasted sesame oil, and ground ginger. Pour this sauce over the "chicken" and vegetables in the skillet. Stir to coat everything evenly.

    • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes until the flavors are well combined and the "chicken" is fully cooked.

    • Remove the skillet from the heat and garnish the filling with sliced green onions.

  2. Assemble the Lettuce Wraps:

    • Take a large lettuce leaf, spoon a generous amount of the "chicken" filling into the center of the leaf.

    • Fold the bottom of the leaf over the filling, then fold in the sides to create a wrap.
