Combine warm water and stevia in a bowl, stir to dissolve then add soy sauce and reserve.
Combine apple puree and gochujang and reserve.
Gently rinse the sesame leaves with cold water to ensure crispness and shake off any excess water. Divide the cucumber, carrot and bean sprouts between the leaves. Top the vegetables with approximately 1-2 teaspoons of the soy mixture and approximately 2 teaspoons of gochujang mixture. Garnish with a sprinkle of black sesame seeds, sesame powder and scallions.
Wrap the leaf edges around the vegetables and enjoy!
