Recipe Ingredients for Tofu Lettuce Wraps

395 grams extra-firm tofu
2 large carrots
1 bell pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced ginger
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1 head lettuce

Recipe Directions for Tofu Lettuce Wraps

  1. 1.You?ll want to cut the vegetables for these wraps into very small bite sized pieces. Peel and slice the carrots into thin discs, and then chop the bell pepper into tiny cubes.

  2. 2.Press a block of tofu for about 20 minutes to remove most of the moisture, and then dice into very small cubes as well.

  3. 3.Add carrots and bell peppers to a sauté pan and cook over medium high heat for about 5 minutes, or until starting to soften. Add tofu, ginger, and garlic, and continue to cook for about ten minutes, stirring often.

  4. 4.In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients for your sauce. Slowly add sauce to pan with tofu and veggies, and stir to coat evenly. Turn the heat down to medium low and allow mixture to continue to cook for about ten more minutes.

  5. 5.In the meantime, prepare your lettuce. I actually used Swiss chard for my wraps because we were out other leafy greens. If you want to use something like chard, just make sure to cut the woody stem out of the middle before wrapping!

  6. 6.Once your filling is all cooked and ready to go, sprinkle with peanuts and remove from the heat. Spoon the mixture onto each (washed) lettuce leaf and be careful to not overfill.

  7. 7.Then carefully fold the sides in and roll away from you until you have a nice tightly wrapped roll!

  8. 8.Serve along side a bit of soy sauce or mix up a bit of extra peanut-y dressing for dipping!
