Vegan Lettuce Wraps

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 4 cups cauliflower (about 1 head of cauliflower, cut very finely)
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil (to saute veggie with)
  • 1/2 red onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 Tbsp ginger (grated)
  • 1/4 cup tamari
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds (to top off the lettuce wraps)
  • 1 head butter lettuce


  • Finely chop the cauliflower. Option to use your food processor and pulse until rice texture forms. Measure 4 cups. Set aside
  • Next, dice the onion, garlic and grate the ginger.
  • Heat a pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of oil. Add the onion. Saute until golden, then add the garlic and the cauliflower. Saute everything until golden brown- roughly 10 minutes with the cauliflower.
  • Add the ginger, tamari, sesame oil, coconut sugar, and the chili flakes. Mix thoroughly. Continue to stir the mixture over medium heat until some of the liquid has been absorbed (roughly 5-10 minutes).
  • The cauliflower mixture should be saucy but not runny! Remove the pan from heat and prepare the lettuce.
  • Lay the lettuce leaves out and add a few tablespoons of the mixture to each leaf and top with sesame seeds.
