Tofu lettuce wraps are simply 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 them as appetizers. 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.
Which type of tofu to use?
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 of the aromatics and spices.
What should I use as wraps?
You may use wheat-flour tortillas, lavash or pita to wrap the tofu filling. I opted for fresh and crunchy iceberg salad. Other types of lettuces such as red leaf, romaine, boston or green leaf can also be used. To save time, you may prepare the vegetables in advance.
Tofu lettuce wraps with peanut sauce
These tofu lettuce wraps are best served with peanut sauce for that punch of flavour. It will definitely enhanced the deliciousness of the wraps.
This recipe is for one serving.
