Thai lettuce wraps with peanut sauce

Here is a recipe that is a little lower in fat and very yummy!

Thai Lettuce Wraps

1/2 small onion diced
1/2 red pepper, minced
1 carrot, shredded
2/3 cup bean sprouts
4-5 washed whole bibb lettuce leaves (butter lettuce)
handful of dry roasted peanuts
Thai Peanut Sauce

Thai Peanut Sauce

1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup  peanut butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 t. sugar
2 T. lime juice
1/2 t. hot chili oil or hot sauce
2 t. low sodium  soy sauce
1 T. minced cilantro  
1/4 tsp Ginger
2 T. warm water
I put this on stove and brought it to a boil
then added a little starch to thicken then set it aside to cool and serve

 I made brown rice with this as a side and also a small cup of fruit with fat free cool whip on top
