These lettuce wraps are inspired by a meal I had at an amazing vegan restaurant in Portland, Oregon. No Bones Beach Club has tropical beach club decor, and an eclectic vegan menu.

While my husband and one of the other members of our group were enjoying deep fried avocado tacos (yes, that’s right, deep fried avocado!), I decided to limit the artery clogging fare and went with the soy curl lettuce wraps. They were delicious!

I enjoyed them so much, I just had to create my own recipe for them. I always love a good recipe for soy curls, and this one came together so easily.

How to Make Asian Soy Curl Lettuce Wraps

To make these lettuce wraps, begin by soaking a package of Butler Soy Curls in hot water until they are rehydrated. Then drain the soy curls and squeeze out the excess water.

Place the soy curls in a large non-stick skillet and stir in one cup of my Homemade Teriyaki Sauce. (I absolutely love my Ozeri Stone Earth Fry Pan. It’s the best nonstick pan I’ve ever used – nothing sticks to it.) Sauté the soy curls on medium heat for about 15 minutes, until they begin to brown and caramelize.

While the soy curls are cooking, prepare 12 Romaine lettuce leaves, the shredded cabbage and carrots, the diced green onions, and the julienned cucumber. Toast the sesame seeds in a small skillet until lightly browned.

Assemble the lettuce wraps by spooning the soy curls into the lettuce leaves. Top the soy curls with cabbage, carrots, cucumber and green onion. Drizzle extra Homemade Teriyaki Sauce over the top for additional flavor!

These lettuce wraps turned out so good! Sweet and savory teriyaki soy curls with fresh, crisp vegetables. A great combination! I hope you give them a try.
