January seems to have gotten away from me! I guess time flies when you are having fun…studying! Unfortunately, it seems as though this semester is not going to be any easier than last semester, but I’ve made it through one semester, so I’m pretty sure I can do it again!
Nothing helps fuel me for my studies better than a tasty treat like these lettuce wraps. The combination of crisp cool lettuce and soft warm tofu make for a delicious appetizer or entrée (that is, if you eat enough of them). I’ve got a midterm coming up, so I think I might head to the kitchen to make some more! Enjoy!
Tofu Lettuce Wraps
To make this dish, I used a recipe from Vegetarian Times. However, instead of using plain tofu for the recipe, I used baked tofu. For the baked tofu, I followed this recipe and used some store-bought teriyaki sauce as the marinade. I also left out lemon grass and some of the garnishes, because I didn’t have them on hand—I’m sure the recipe would be delicious with them though.
