Thai Lettuce Cups

Do you love Thai food? Yeah, me too! Well, I pretty much love all Asian inspired dishes. This dish was conceived when BandMan's drummer requested Thai Lettuce Cups during rehearsal one very recent of evening. My love affair with Thai food made this challenge quite a breeze to accept.

These little guys are filled with flavor; so much flavor in fact, that you might find yourself wagging your tail for them. Give them a go.

2 c oyster mushrooms, sliced 

4 cloves garlic, minced 
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced 
2 lemongrass stalk, cut into pieces 
zest of 1 lime 
2 tsp sriracha
 2 tbsp sesame oi
l2 tbsp soy sauce
 2 tbsp maple syrup
 2 tbsp basil, minced 
black pepper, to taste 
1 c carrots, diced
 1 medium white onion, sliced
 butter lettuce
  1. Combine everything but the lettuce, carrots, and onion. Let marinate for an hour or more.
  2. Saute the carrots in some of the marinade liquid for a minute or two. Add in the mushroom mixture. Add in onions and saute until they are at your desired tenderness. 
  3. Spoon mixture into lettuce cups and eat up.

Did I mention that I started playing "wannabe Janis Joplin" with BandMan's sexy band? Yeah that happened. I'm officially sangin' and shakin' shit.
