P. F. Chang Style Vegetarian Lettuce Wrap Recipe by Archanas Kitchen
Asian Style Roasted Vegetable with Schezwan Sauce Lettuce lettuce wraps is a fun and easy recipe to make for a gathering with friends. I typically place the filling in a bowl and the wraps torn into pieces that can be filled into in a separate platter and let your friends and family wrap their own. My friends have loved this spicy combination of crisp, cold lettuce with the warm, spicy roasted vegetable filling.

Directions for Lettuce Wrap Recipe
To begin making the Lettuce Wraps with roasted vegetables, get all the ingredients ready and we will begin to roast your vegetables in a wok.
Heat oil in a wok on medium high heat; add the ginger, spring onions, red bell pepper, zucchini and sweet corn.
Stir fry on medium heat until the red peppers and vegetables have shrunk in size and are well roasted.
Once the vegetables are roasted add in the remaining ingredients like sauces and spices, except the lettuce and toss on high heat for a few minutes. Turn off heat and our filling is ready to be wrapped into the lettuce.
Separate the leaves from the lettuce, place them in a platter and place the stir fried roasted vegetable filling in a bowl.
And how do you serve the Lettuce Wraps with roasted vegetables?
Allow the family to make their own wraps by placing a portion of the filling into the lettuce leaves to wrap and eat. These make healthy appetizers for your parties.
