Description

Our recipe for vegan lettuce wraps tastes better than you’ll find in any upscale Asian restaurant, and using crumbled tofu keeps the wraps light and heart-healthy!


Ingredients

  • 8oz extra firm high protein tofu
  • 2 tbsp neutral flavor oil (such as avocado or grapeseed)
  • 3 cubes Dorot Gardens Ginger
  • 2 cubes Dorot Gardens Basil
  • 2 cube Dorot Gardens Garlic
  • 6 scallions, green and white parts, sliced (save 2 for garnish)
  • 3 tbsp vegetarian hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos ( see Note 1)
  • 1 tbsp rice  vinegar
  • 1-8oz can sliced water chestnuts, diced
  • Sriracha or your favorite hot sauce, to taste (optional, here we used green dragon sauce)
  • 1/3 cup salted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 head of lettuce ( we used butter lettuce ), leaves separated and thoroughly washed and dried
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place the tofu in the food processor and pulse a few times, until chopped very small. Set aside
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger, basil, garlic and scallions and cook for about 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add the tofu and cook for another 4-5 minutes, stirring often
  3. Add the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, coconut aminos, rice vinegar, water chestnuts, and hot sauce (if using) and continue cooking for about 4 minutes, stirring often
  4. Spoon over the lettuce leaves and sprinkle with chopped peanuts, reserved scallions, and shredded carrots (if using)

Notes

  1. If coconut aminos are not available, use an additional tablespoon of soy sauce instead
