3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

1 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tsp brown sugar

14 tsp pepper

Dash red pepper flakes

1 tbsp canola oil

4 garlic cloves, minced

8 green onions, sliced, tops included

1 tbsp grated fresh ginger

12 (14-oz) container extra-firm tofu, cut in 12-inch cubes

1 cup chopped water chestnuts

2 12 cups frozen, burger-style vegetable protein crumbles, thawed

2 tomatoes, chopped

16 large lettuce leaves

1 cup brown rice, cooked according to directions without salt or fat

Directions

1. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Place the skillet over medium-high heat and add sesame seeds. Cook 3 to 6 minutes, stirring often until sesame seeds are lightly browned and toasted. Remove from skillet and set aside.
