Teriyaki Tempeh Lettuce Wraps

I’ve been craving some P.F. Changs lettuce wraps for a few weeks now but making the trip to find a location (it would involve a ferry ride) just doesn’t seem worth it. So I decided to take matters into my own hands.


Allow me to introduce you to my new best friend: Teriyaki Tempeh Lettuce Wraps.

I know, I know, I might be moving a little bit fast but seriously, these guys are good. AND they are healthy. Match made in heaven, right?


Teriyaki Tempeh Lettuce Wraps

Makes 10 lettuce wraps. (Nutrition)

– 1 bell pepper, diced
– 1/2 a large onion, diced
– 4 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 block tempeh, crumbled
– 5 baby bella mushrooms, diced

– 2 Tbls peanut oil
– 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce (I used this recipe in its entirety.)
– 1 tsp sriracha (adjust based on heat tolerance)
– 1/8 tsp ginger paste

Start by sautéing the vegetables in peanut oil over medium heat. Once tender and fragrant, stir in tempeh and heat through. Combine with warmed teriyaki sauce and spices. Serve in lettuce leaves.


You know how I sad good and healthy? Oh yeah, let’s add easy to that growing list of things I love about this recipe. It’s even easier if you have a sous chef do all the chopping and a Pippin dog supervising. 014027032

Saute for a few minutes until the onions are sweating and the peppers are tender.


Stir in the rest of the ingredients basically and serve up!


Sure, they may be a bit messy to eat but that’s half the fun.

  1. Tempeh scares me. Never tried it, let alone cook with it. Although I used to feel the same way about tofu and now I love it, but still…

  2. I keep reading about lettuce wraps! Are they really that tasty? I have been a bit skeptical but this recipe (and those photos!) are beginning to change my mind. They do look delicious. And I do have a head of lettuce in the fridge. Hmmm 🙂

  3. that looks absolutely delicious, thank you for the post!

  4. Looks delish. Great photos, and I’m especially digging the canine in the kitchen!

  5. Your photos look spectacular…almost makes me want to try tempeh…whatever that is.

  6. my Sammy dog would agree that supervision is definitely the key. 😉 If i could train him to chop, I’d be good.

  7. What a GREAT take on the PFC dish! This sounds WONDERFUL! 😀

  8. That sounds like the perfect lunch! Now, I just need to find me some tempeh.

    P.S. Your dog is gorgeous!

  9. I’ve never had tempeh. I’ve read about it a lot and people that eat it seem to love it.. I’ll have to try it sometime soon.

  10. This looks delicious! The messier the better, I say.

  11. I love this recipe! I’m a big teriyaki fan, and it has never occurred to me to make my own. I didn’t know it was so easy!

  12. This recipe is awesome! What a wonderful way to enjoy eating healthy! There is no compromising taste with this recipe. And I never leave comments or reviews for anything. This is my first time.
