Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat; add the onion, garlic and ginger; saute 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is soft.
  2. Add the shiitake mushrooms and saute 10 minutes, or until soft.
  3. Add the carrots, soy sauce, lime juice and chili paste; saute 4 to 5 minutes, or until carrots are soft.
  4. Stir in the water chestnuts and scallions. Cook for 1 minute. Season with salt to taste.
  5. To serve, spoon several tablespoons of the chicken mixture into the center of a lettuce leaf, taco-style.

Notes

  • I find the easiest way to mince the onions, shitake mushrooms and carrots is to use a food processor, like our favorite from Cuisinart. However, you need to be careful not to over-process or your vegetables will turn to mush!
  • Also, for best results you will want to process each vegetable individually (onions, mushrooms and carrots have different textures and therefore do not mince uniformly if processed all together.)
