Recipe Ingredients for Vegan Tofu Apple Lettuce Wrap

1 pound firm tofu
4 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon mirin
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 pinch cayenne
1 Granny Smith apple
2 sprigs cilantro stems
1 cup finely shredded Napa cabbage
3 1/2 ounces scallions, sliced
9 large leaf or butterhead lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry

Recipe Directions for Vegan Tofu Apple Lettuce Wrap

  1. Wrap the tofu in a kitchen towel and set it on a plate. Put another plate on top and weigh it down with something heavy. Press the tofu for 30 minutes.

  2. Make a marinade by whisking together 3 tablespoons of the orange juice, the mirin, soy sauce, and canola oil. Stir in the garlic, ginger, and cayenne.

  3. Cut the tofu into three slices lengthwise, then turn the tofu block on its side and cut into thirds again, making nine equal slices. Place the slices in an 8 8-inch baking dish and pour the marinade over the top. Let the tofu sit for 30 minutes, then turn the slices over and let sit for another 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat the oven to 375F. Bake the tofu and marinade for 40 minutes, until it is golden brown and the marinade is absorbed. Set aside to cool.

  5. Peel, core, and thinly slice the Granny Smith apple. Toss the apple slices with the remaining tablespoon of orange juice to keep them from browning.

  6. Dip one of the wrappers in a wide bowl filled with warm water for 15 seconds, or until softened. Transfer to a dry work surface and pat dry. Arrange a slice of tofu along with some apple slices, 2 sprigs of cilantro, some Napa cabbage, and scallions in a mound just below the center of the wrapper. Roll up the rice paper to form a tight bundle, folding in the sides along the way.

  7. Serve or pack each roll wrapped in a lettuce leaf (this will keep the spring roll from sticking to the plate). If packing for later, cover the rolls with a damp paper towel and some plastic wrap to keep them from drying out.
