“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

GLUTEN FREE- NIGHT SHADE FREE Lettuce Wraps
This is a recipe that would serve 2 people. After eating at P.F. Changs last night, I was really interested in recreating the gluten free Lettuce Wraps.
I found a few recipes online that seemed to go in the right direction, and then I decided to give it a shot and recreate the taste from last night.....
My first try was DELICIOUS! I think there are many things to do with this recipe.....and many ways to tweak it according to dietary needs.
So here is my "loose" not etched in stone Recipe. :)
Lettuce Wraps: GLUTEN FREE and NIGHT SHADE FREE
2 chicken tenders diced into very fine pieces
1 green onion , including green part finely sliced
8 shitake mushrooms finely diced
water chestnuts finely diced ( I used about 15)
1 TLB of freshly minced garlic
1/4 tsp pepper (still experimenting)
1/4 cup RICE WINE
1/4 cup GLUTEN FREE soy sauce... ( I used tamari)
I think Braggs liquid aminos would work fine.
If you are soy free, I don't know.....
Put all ingredients into wok, and stir fry until done. (about 5 minutes0
Serve with lettuce leaves (like tacos made of lettuce) :)
It will make about 8.....small wraps
Ideas I have flowing:
Add finely diced carrots, finely diced celery, MORE mushrooms and NO chicken for vegan,
more pepper and maybe some horse radish for spice......and possibly nuts.
I know that PF Changs puts sugar in their recipe. I think the rice wine is sweet enough.
I made this tonight for Friday night movie night and didn't miss the old card board pizza that everybody else gets to eat. :)
