Ngoc’s Kolrabi Lettuce Wrap with Hoisin Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken (or beef or pork depending on your preference) Can substitute the ground chicken with tofu for a vegetarian dish (just crumble a block of tofu instead of the ground chicken)
  • 1 kohlrabi peeled and chopped to about 1 inch cubes
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped to about 1 inch cubes
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 10 button mushrooms or shitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • About 10 leaves of green lettuce, washed and dried
  • Mint leaves washed and dried
Directions

  • Heat a large non stick pan, brown the ground chicken, kohlrabi, carrots, garlic and jalapeno pepper.  Add the hoisin sauce and white wine, simmer until the vegetables soften (about 10 minutes); adjust the seasoning using a small amount of soy sauce if needed.  
  • Add the mushroom and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until the mushroom cooks through.  
  • Serve the filling hot and arrange lettuce leaves and mint leaves on the side and everyone can assemble their own wrap
  • To assemble: take a lettuce leaf, add the filling and some mint leaves, roll the lettuce to enclose the filling and enjoy!
Great as an appertizer or snack!
