- A handful of sliced Mandarin oranges
In a small pan, heat some oil and then add the mushrooms and fry them until they brown. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the sauce and whisk together until well Incorporated. Set aside. In a frying pan, add the carrots, roasted red peppers, mushrooms and corn. Fry on medium heat for a minute or two just to soften the vegetables a little. Add the sauce to the vegetables and stir to coat them evenly. Add the cashews and mandarin oranges. Cook everything on medium heat just until it heats through. You don't want to cook it too long because then the vegetables will loose all of their crunch and the variety of textures is really what give this dish a pleasant surprise.
Wash lettuce and pat dry, removing as much water as possible. Spoon the vegetable mixture into the center and top with green onions. Wrap the lettuce around the vegetables and serve immediately.
*This would also be great with ground chicken or pork or you could add a cup of cooked rice to the vegetables just before serving them into the lettuce cups.
As a side note and a quick shout out, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BABY SISTER, BETH! Welcome to the next quarter of your life kiddo...it's gonna be good!
