Tempeh lettuce wraps

A new recipe for those of you on my friends list who exist only to read my recipes:

We made tempeh lettuce wraps, which turned out INCREDIBLE. We made some with chicken too, for the animal lovers (ha).

I have no idea what the amounts are on this-- we just played until it looked right. If you're really concerned about following recipes, I think we modeled this after the first recipe on this page

iceberg lettuce, but butter lettuce may have worked better for wraps.

tempeh or chicken, cut into small pieces
soy sauce
sesame oil
sliced almonds
shredded or diced carrots
green onion

And my favorite part, which came out fantastically amazing-- we used my magic bullet, but a regular blender would work as well.

Peanut sauce
1 cup peanut butter
2 Tbs honey
3 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs rice wine vinegar
1 tsp fresh gingerroot, minced (we used about 6 slices of jarred, sliced (NOT MARINATED) ginger)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup hot water

Some topped with chow mein noodles. We couldn't find those white puffed rice stringy things.

Image found randomly on google.
