  • 12 large eggs
  • 11⁄2 Tbsp. Asian fish sauce
  • 1⁄2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 cup cooked bean thread noodles
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 24 Boston lettuce leaves

For sauce: Blend soy sauce, hoisin sauce, lime juice and rice vinegar. Cover and reserve.

For scramble: Saute onion, ginger and garlic in peanut oil over medium-high heat until onion is translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add carrot, green onions and water chestnuts. Saute for an additional 3 minutes.

Whisk eggs; add eggs to sauteed ingredients, stirring constantly to break eggs into small curds, until soft. Stir in fish sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil; continue cooking until eggs are firm throughout, with no visible liquid egg remaining. Stir in bean threads, peanuts and cilantro; heat through.

Portion about 1⁄3 cup egg mixture onto each leaf. Drizzle with 2 Tbsp. sauce; wrap leaves around eggs. Serve immediately.
