½ cup grated carrots
½ cup chopped green onions

To make the filling, turn your stove on medium heat and pour oil into a large wok or pan. Next add in the onion, ginger, lemongrass, and garlic, and cook until the onions begin to soften and everything gets fragrant. Then pour in the tofu and water chestnuts stir-frying it until heated through. Stir in soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sriracha and syrup and mix it until all the flavors are well distributed throughout the filling. Finally turn off the heat and set up your plate of lettuce leaves.

Arrange the lettuce leaves on a large platter and pour the filling into each lettuce leaf. Garnish the each lettuce leaf with all of the garnishes and serve immediately.
