I love lettuce wraps and had something like this for the first time at The Cheese Cake Factory…really awesome from Northern Girl.

Even though I am not a vegetarian, I have been craving non-meat sources of protein all winter. This was my latest invention which blends the flavors of China, Vietnam, and Thailand into one dish. It is savory, a little spicy, and has just a little bit of sweetness to bring harmony to the flavors.

This is full of protein, calcium and is low in carbs. If you use olive oil or another healthy oil this dish becomes a good source of mono and poly-unsaturated fats. Serve with fresh steamed veg on the side to up your veggie quota or serve over brown rice to make this a heartier meal. (note: This recipe is not completely vegetarian because it does use fish sauce.)
