Oraganic Recipe: Vegitarian Lettuce Wraps

Budget Savvy Diva has a VERY YUMMY and ORGANIC RECIPE for you :)
Vegan Lettuce Wraps


1 pound extra firm tofu, drained and crumbled

2 tablespoons chopped ginger

1 tablespoon sesame or olive oil

¾ cup diced celery

¾ cup diced carrots

2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce

½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

salt and pepper to taste

1 head Bibb or Romaine lettuce or Napa cabbage

2 tablespoons sesame seeds


Heat oil in sauté pan; add ginger, celery and carrots. Stir and sauté for 5-7 minutes until slightly soft. Add tofu, soy sauce and seasoning and stir, cooking for 10 minutes. Add a bit of water in teaspoon increments if tofu is sticking to pan.

Remove from heat, spoon into lettuce leaves, sprinkle sesame seeds on top, roll and enjoy.

Make a spicy peanut dipping sauce by mixing together:

1 clove garlic, minced

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

1/2 cup tamari

1-2 tablespoons Sriracha or chili sauce

1/2 cup organic peanut butter

juice of one lime

2 tablespoons sesame oil

* You can trade out garlic for ginger or omit completely and substitute sunflower butter for peanut allergies.

Thanks! Organic Authority
