A close relative of tofu, tempeh is a fermented soy product that is often used as a meat replacement. In this recipe, it takes the place of chicken in these fresh lettuce wraps. Radishes and ginger add a zing to this restaurant classic, and water chestnuts add crunch without adding calories.


  • 6 oz tempeh, sliced
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 head (5" dia) butter leaf lettuce
  • 4 small radishes, thinly sliced
  • 6 water chestnut, sliced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 tbsp chopped shallots
  • ¼ cup cilantro
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
