Cook the quinoa in a pot or rice cooker. Rinse it first and add 1 ½ cups of water to cook it in.
Chop all of the vegetables. Ginger, garlic, chili, onion, water chestnut, coriander, mushroom - all of it needs to be chopped (or grated) so it can go in the wok or frying pan.
Chop or dice the tempeh finely and put aside.
Heat oil (coconut or good quality olive oil) in the wok or frying pan.
Once the oil is hot, put all the chopped vegetables into the wok or pan and stir regularly so it cooks evenly. About 2 or 3 minutes will do.
Add in the chopped tempeh, tamari sauce and sesame oil to the wok/ pan.
Stir regularly, especially if you are using a wok, for about 3 minutes, until everything is piping hot.
Last but not least, stir in the cooked quinoa while the wok/ pan is still hot. Mix everything together well.
Using a large serving spoon, place the cooked mixture into the lettuce cups
Garnish with coriander (if desired) and a generous squeeze of lime juice over the top.
If you are having trouble finding tempeh, you can substitute tofu.Quinoa expands a lot when cooking, 1 cup uncooked will be plenty even though it might not look like it.Don't forget the lime, the lime juice at the end really adds fantastic flavor.Go ahead and use other vegetables. If you don't have everything here available that is fine, and add in your own favorite vegetables.
