Easy Tofu Lettuce Wraps
APPETIZER, MAIN COURSE, SIDE DISH
8 oz extra firm tofu; grated (box grater works perfect)
- 2 carrots, peeled and grated
- 2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp Porcini BBQ Genie
- 3 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 clove garlic, grated or minced
1/2 cup or more Feta Cheese
- 1/2 cup or more Yogurt or Sour Cream
Small handful basil leaves, sliced
- 10 Boston, Iceburg or Romaine Lettuce leaves
Lettuce wrap components:
In a small bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients together well.
Set a large pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tbsp of olive oil. Wait for it to get nice and hot and add in the shredded tofu and carrots, tossing until distributed and it heats up the tofu and carrots. Let it sizzle for a few moments to let the flavours sink in.
- Give your sauce a nice stir and pour it all over, toss to evenly combine.
- Salt to taste before finishing it off. If adding feta to your lettuce wrap, remember you'll get some saltiness from that as well.
- Open up your lettuce cups and add some yogurt or sour cream first (tastes great without it too!) Pile in your tofu mix and top with feta cheese and sliced basil.
