Tofu lettuce wraps are deliciously easy to prepare. With a slight hint of spiciness by adding some chilli powder while delivering a beautiful shade of yellow with turmeric, this vegan wrap is a big hit when I made it as an appetizer. If you are planning to have a meal which is light and easy to the stomach, try this tofu wrap recipe. The addition of cumin definitely gave this dish a light earthy and nutty flavour besides contributing to the wonderful aroma.
Use medium or firm tofu for this recipe. Silken tofu will be too soft for this recipe and it will not be able to absorb the flavours from the aromatics and spices.
You may use wheat-flour tortillas, lavash or pita with this tofu filling. I opted for the fresh and crunchy iceberg salad. Besides iceberg salad, other types of lettuces such as red leaf, romaine, boston or green leaf can also be used. This recipe is for one serving. To save time, you may prepare the vegetables in advance.
These tofu lettuce wraps are best to be served with a sauce for that punch of flavour such as peanut sauce. Make the best peanut sauce you know with these healthy tofu lettuce wraps.
