Asian Tofu Lettuce Wrap
1 head of romaine lettuce
1 package extra firm or extra firm tofu
1 cup shredded carrots
1 white cabbage, sliced into thin shreds
50g bean sprouts
125g shitake mushrooms, sliced
Oil for cooking the tofu (vegetable oil or sesame oil)
8 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground ginger
Juice from ½ lime
½ tsp apple cider vinegar
Peanut Dipping Sauce:
1.5 tbsp crunchy peanut butter (or 1 tbsp smooth peanut butter with 1 tbsp roasted peanuts)
2 tsp soy sauce
½ lime juice
Meat Option: use 1lbs of shrimp instead of tofu. Use the same marinade and cook in a large skillet as well.
Wash romaine lettuce leaves.
Assemble the tofu marinade and peanut dipping sauce.
Cut the tofu into 2 pieces and place in between 2 kitchen or paper towels and press down with a plate or cutting board to drain water out of the tofu. Then cut the tofu into 1 inch pieces. Add the tofu pieces to the marinade, ensuring they are all covered. Let stand for a few minutes
Heat oil in a large frying pan and add the tofu pieces and remaining marinade. Cook about 5 minutes until the first side in golden brown. Meanwhile, chop the cabbage into thin shreds and the mushrooms into thin slices. Either cut the carrots into thin sticks or use a food processor.
Flip the tofu pieces over to the other side and cook for about 2 minutes. Then add the mushrooms and cabbage. For about 3 minutes or until the cabbage has wilted
Assemble your wraps by placing the tofu, cabbage, mushrooms, carrots and beansprouts all together. Top with the peanut dipping sauce.
