We haven't been huge on tofu. We have made tofu "chicken" nuggets, and a chocolate pudding made from tofu, but neither of those things have really been off-the-wall awesome tasting. We find that it has a strange texture. I suppose it takes a level of getting used to that we haven't quite reached yet. We had some romaine lettuce that we got in our CSA box last week, so I thought lettuce wraps would be a fun way to use it up.
These lettuce wraps are pretty good though. White beans, tofu chunks, green onions, corn and spices. With all that mixed together, the tofu texture sort of gets lost in the mix.
Tofu Curry Lettuce Wraps
4 oz extra firm tofu, chopped
1 can white beans
1 ear of corn, kernels cut off (or you can use canned corn)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 green onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
handful of spices (we used curry, ginger, cumin, salt and pepper)
Place the tofu in a bowl, and add all the spices you want, to taste. Let it sit at least 30 mins, in the fridge.
In a large skillet, heat the oil. Add in the garlic and green onions, and sauté until softened. Add in the rest of the ingredients, and cook until all warmed and cooked through, about 5 mins.
Let cool and scoop into large pieces of lettuce!
