Veggie lovers can feast on this filling vegetarian appetizer or meal that can be eaten any time of the day! I fell in love with the veggie lettuce wraps at a famous Chinese chain restaurant, and put my own spin on it.

  • Heat canola oil in a skillet over medium heat; add tofu and season with salt to taste. Turn tofu frequently until all sides are brown, 8 to 10 minutes; remove from heat. Pat tofu dry with a paper towel and allow to cool, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine cucumber, radish, tomato, water chestnuts, soy sauce, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add tofu and peanut powder just before serving.

  • Arrange lettuce leaves around the edge of a large platter and mound tofu filling in the center. To eat, spoon 1 or 2 tablespoons tofu mixture into the center of a leaf and wrap lettuce around filling like a burrito.

Cook's Note:

You may substitute paneer for tofu.

I did not care for this recipe. I didn't even use the radishes and water chestnuts and I didn't like it. Way too much soy sauce and tasted very strange. I've had great lettuce wraps and these are not them! Read More
