Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps

Ryne and I spent all day today at the Masters. We did a lot of walking, eating, and celebrity stalking. Unfortunately, cameras are not allowed on tournament days, so I have nothing to share other than the two pictures we snapped before walking in.

I do have a ridiculous recipe for you, though. I’ve always wanted to make knock-off PF Chang’s Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps, but I never could quite figure out what they put in them. Instead of worrying over getting it right, I just threw together some things that I know taste good. (The sauce was definitely inspired by the “make your own” sauce at the table, though!) Enjoy!

Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 block of extra-firm tofu, pressed and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup water chestnuts, coarsely diced
  • 1/2 cup bamboo shoots, coarsely diced
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets, coarsely diced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, coarsely diced
  • 1/2 cup onion, coarsely diced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, coarsely diced
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon hot mustard
  • 4-6 large lettuce leaves

Directions:

  1. Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a large skillet.
  2. Add crumbled tofu and saute for 5 minutes over medium heat (or until tofu has browned).
  3. Add diced vegetables and cook over medium-low heat for 10 minutes.
  4. While tofu and vegetables are cooking, combine soy sauce, vinegar, sriracha, and mustard in a small bowl to create a sauce/dip.
  5. Before serving, stir half of sauce into tofu and vegetable mixture. Reserve the second half for dipping.
  6. Serve small portions of the mixture wrapped in lettuce leaves. Don’t forget to dip! ;)

As always, adjust to your taste! They are pretty dang good, though. :)
