Quinoa Lettuce Wraps
3 cups cooked Quinoa (about 3/4 cup dry)
1 can (or 1 1/2 cups) black beans - drained and well rinsed
1/3 cup sliced green onion
8 oz water chestnuts - chopped
2 carrots - julienned or shredded
1 head bib lettuce
1/2 cup reduced sodium tamari or soy sauce
2 TBSP toasted sesame oil (regular works too)
2-3 cloves garlic - minced
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
2 TBSP apple cider vinegar
2 TBSP raw honey or coconut nectar
In a large bowl mix together quinoa, beans, green onions, water chestnuts and carrots. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic. ginger, vinegar and honey (it helps if the honey is warmed). Pour sauce over quinoa mixture and stir to combine.
Serve on bib lettuce. I add a little Tiger Sauce to mine!
