Vegan Tofu Lettuce Wrap

September 8, 2018 0 By Vicki Brett Gach
These flavorful lettuce wraps transform plain tofu into delicious  – whether served as a light meal, or an adorable appetizer.
For extra color and variety, mix and match these wraps with prepared brown rice, or garnish with fresh vegetables, and serve along with Spicy Peanut Sauce (recipe below).

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 package extra firm tofu, crumbled
  • 3 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce or tamari)
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 
  • 2 teaspoons vegan Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 3/4 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced 
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (or to taste)
  • Lettuce leaves
    Optional garnishes and additions: 

    • shredded carrots
    • diced cucumbers
    • brown rice
    • hot sauce
    • Spicy Peanut Sauce * (see recipe below)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Heat a large wok or heavy skillet, and add tofu to the pan. Brown slightly, stirring occasionally. If needed, add a little water to prevent sticking to the pan. Mix in Bragg’s Liquid Aminos, rice wine vinegar, and Worcestershire Sauce, and continue to saute until slightly browned.

 

Add celery, red cabbage, fresh ginger, and red pepper flakes, and continue cooking until mixture is golden and almost crispy. 

Turn off heat, and stir in fresh cilantro.  

Serve tofu mixture in lettuce leaves, along with optional garnishes and Spicy Peanut Sauce (if desired).
