tofu lettuce wraps with cabbage and red bell peppers

Recipe Ingredients for Tofu lettuce wraps

3 tbsp fish sauce
3 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp garlic
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp sesame oil
500 grams medium firm tofu
1 tbsp peanut oil
3 cups shredded napa cabbage
1 red bell pepper
8 lettuce leaves

Recipe Directions for Tofu lettuce wraps

  1. In a small bowl whisk together the fish sauce, rice vinegar, garlic puree, ginger puree, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Set dressing aside.

  2. Thinly slice the napa cabbage and cut the red bell pepper into strips. Put napa cabbage and bell pepper strips into a bowl and toss together. Wash lettuce and spin dry or dry with paper towels.

  3. Cut tofu until 1/4 inch thick strips. Heat oil in heavy frying pan and cook tofu pieces until lightly browned on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side. Cut the cooked tofu into thin strips and toss with about 2 T of the dressing mixture.

  4. Toss the napa cabbage and red pepper mixture with 2 T of the dressing mixture. Then assemble lettuce wraps or cups by putting 6-8 strips of tofu in each lettuce leaf, topped with a small handful of the napa cabbage and bell pepper mixture. I like to add about a teaspoon of extra dressing on top. Fold over or cup in your hand and enjoy!

  5. If you're not going to eat all the lettuce wraps at once, toss the cooked tofu with dressing but only add dressing to as much of the napa cabbage/bell pepper mixture as you're going to use. Refrigerate ingredients separately. I reheated the tofu strips when I ate the leftovers, but it's not essential.
