asian lettuce wraps

A light and crispy appetizer with a little bit of crunch.
Ingredients (Serves 10)
  • 1 head of iceberg lettuce
  • 1/4 cup of hoisin sauce
  • 2 1/2 cups of leftover stuffing
  • 1 cup of pine nuts
  • Working from the base, remove the core from a head of iceberg lettuce and discard any discolored outer leaves.
  • Cut the head into quarters, then carefully peel off 10 sets of two-leaf layers; each double layer will become a lettuce cup.
  • Spoon 1⁄4 cup of hoisin sauce evenly among the lettuce cups, then do the same with 21⁄2 cups of leftover stuffing.
  • Place 1⁄3 cup of pine nuts in a small pan over medium-low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until nuts are just lightly toasted, about 2 minutes (watch carefully; they burn easily).
  • Sprinkle over filled lettuce cups.
