Lighten up lettuce wraps by blending half the beef with meaty-tasting mushrooms.


  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 tsp dried minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp dried minced onion
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 head of Boston lettuce
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews (optional)


  1. Place the mushrooms, onion, garlic and ginger in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse until finely chopped. Add the ground beef; pulse until well combined.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushroom mixture and seasoning blend. Cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes until browned.
  3. Stir in red pepper, hoisin sauce, soy sauce and vinegar. Simmer for 5 minutes; remove from heat. Serve in Boston lettuce leaves garnished with shredded carrot and chopped cashews.


Tip: Pack leftover mushroom mixture and lettuce separately to take for lunch the next day.
