Spicy Vegetarian Asian Lettuce Wraps

These Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps are so good! We figured out the recipe and have had them three times already this week. They have the perfect amount of crunch, saltiness, and spice!


  • 16 green leaf lettuce leaves (Boston Bib or any large leaf lettuce will work)
  • 3 Beyond Beef patties
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil (coconut works great)
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons minced pickled ginger
  • 1 dash Gochujang chili paste, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Very Muy Rico hot sauce
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped


  1. Prepare Lettuce Leaves: Gently wash and pat dry the lettuce leaves, setting them aside for later use.

  2. Air Fry Beyond Beef: Preheat your air fryer to 350°F. Place the Beyond Beef patties in the air fryer basket, ensuring they're not overlapping. Cook for 10 minutes, or until they're thoroughly cooked and have a slightly crispy exterior. After cooking, transfer the Beyond Beef to a cutting board and crumble or chop it into small pieces.

  3. Sauté Onion: Heat cooking oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until tender and translucent, about 5 to 7 minutes.

  4. Flavor Fusion: To the skillet with the onions, add the hoisin sauce, minced garlic, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, pickled ginger, chili paste, and the Very Muy Rico hot sauce. Stir well to combine all the ingredients evenly.

  5. Combine Ingredients: Mix in the chopped water chestnuts, green onions, and the air-fried Beyond Beef crumbles to the skillet. Stir the mixture well, cooking for another 2 minutes to let the flavors meld and the green onions slightly wilt.

  6. Assemble and Enjoy: Arrange the prepared lettuce leaves on a large platter. Spoon the flavorful Beyond Beef mixture into the center of each leaf. Fold or wrap the lettuce around the filling and savor the rich, spicy, and umami-packed bite.

These Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps bring a creative and spicy twist to a classic favorite, making it an irresistible option for any meal. With the addition of chili paste and Very Muy Rico hot sauce, each bite delivers a bold flavor profile that's sure to delight your taste buds.
