  3. Add canola oil to a small skillet over medium heat. Add tempeh and cook 5 minutes, until well browned, then flip and cook 5 minutes more. Raise heat to high and add red bell pepper and onion. Stir-fry about 2 minutes.

  4. Lower heat to medium and add sauce to skillet. Cook just until sauce is thick and tempeh and vegetables are well coated. Remove from heat and stir in green onion and sesame seeds.

  5. Place wrap on a plate and arrange tempeh mixture and lettuce in the center. Roll up tightly, tucking the ends in, then cut in half to serve.
