Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 medium-sized onion, sliced thinly
  • 8 Ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • One 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons Sriracha
  • 2 Teaspoons sambal oelek
  • 1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Teaspoon arrowroot*
  • 12 Boston, bibb, or romaine lettuce leaves

Directions

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and sauté until the onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add the chickpeas, hoisin sauce, Sriracha, sambal oelek, onion powder, and garlic powder, and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and sauté until the chickpea mixture is bubbly and caramelized, for 3-4 minutes. Then, stir in the arrowroot.
