1/1 Photo of Stir-Fried Lettuce
This is great if you have a head of lettuce that you have to use right away. Even if you don't, its still a great side dish to any asian meal. Simple to make, with common ingredients, its a keeper for sure. Try different lettuce varieties, I used romane tonight since its what was on hand. I also didn't have sesamee oil tonight so I used walnut oil and it was still a winner. I like to toss in some toasted sesame seeds and if I have them on hand a green onion, chopped, is nice to add with the lettuce. As you can see, this recipe leaves a huge opening for your own additions and variations.
