Chinese Lettuce wrap

When the temperatures rise outside, lettuce wraps become a dinner favorite.  They are quick to assemble, full of flavor, and keep the house nice and cool.  Not too mention the help to use up all of the extra zuchinni in your garden!

1TBS Sesame Oil
4 cups chopped Zucchini
1/2 cup Spanish Peanuts
2 TBS Light Soy Sauce
2 TBS Lemon Juice
2 tsp minced Garlic
2 TBS minced fresh Basil
1Jjalapeno Pepper minced
1 TBS Hot Chili Sauce (I like Siracha)
12 Romaine Lettuce Leaves

In a wok, heat the oil.  Add the zucchini, and peanuts.  Stiring occasionaly, cook until the zucchini and peanuts become soft.  Stir in the remaining ingredients in order, except for the lettuce.
Continue to cook until the peppers become soft.
Fill the lettuce leaves with the mixture.

For fun, you could add cabbage, matchstick carrots and radish slices.

1 lettuce leaf and filling= 54 calories
