Directions

Heat a wok over high heat and add the vegetable oil. Stir-fry the ginger and garlic until fragrant, less than 1 minute. Add the carrots and stir-fry until tender, 2 minutes. Toss in the bamboo shoots, asparagus and mushrooms and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes more. Season with the soy sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce and toasted sesame oil and stir well.

Arrange the butter lettuce leaves on a plate and divide the mixture among the leaves. Garnish each cup with a sprinkle of chopped chiles, green onion, cilantro, Mandarin oranges and chopped roasted peanuts and serve.

Cook's Note: 1/2 cup canned Mandarin orange segments could be used in place of the 3 segmented oranges.

    Taste great and doesn't seem like a low calorie dish and the presentation is elegant. I substituted Water Chestnuts for Bamboo Shoots and it worked great.

    Definately the light touch. The vegetables were beautiful. The mandarin orange with the fresh chili made a lovely salad to eat in your hand.

    Yummy! So easy and quick to make. I used 1/2 can bamboo shoots and 1/2 can water chestnuts (chopped instead of the full can of bamboo shoots and I did not precook the asparagus-it was fine. Took leftovers to work next day...everyone was jealous!
