Instructions
  1. Simmer lentils in unsalted water according to package directions until just tender (about 15 minutes). Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in bell pepper and onion and saute until softened, about 5 – 6 minutes.
  3. Add in carrots, garlic and ginger and saute 1 minute longer.
  4. Add in drained lentils, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and water chestnuts, cook while tossing, 1 minute (thin as needed with a few tablespoons of water. The lentils will absorb some of the sauce as the mixtures rests so you can thin with a little water as desired).
  5. Toss in walnuts, sprinkle with green onions, cilantro and optional sesame seeds. Serve filling warm in lettuce leaves.
