Sweet Potato Lettuce Cups

Sweet Potato Lettuce Cupswith Coconut Cashew Rice

When it comes to lettuce cups, why does meat get to have all the fun? In this terrific vegetarian version, sweet potato and mushrooms are tossed in a spicy-sweet glaze made with Korean chili paste, brown sugar, and soy sauce then roasted to sticky, tender perfection. The combination of roasted veggies, cashew-laced coconut rice, and a bright scallion vinaigrette makes these lettuce cups seriously craveable. Hungry yet?
