Try these delicious Vegan Tofu Lettuce Wraps with Mushrooms, perfect for a healthy Asian-inspired dinner or lunch option.
- Remove the tofu from its packaging and drain. Wrap the tofu in a kitchen towel, then place a heavy object on top of the tofu and press for 10-20 minutes, until the tofu feels more tender.
- Prepare the sauce by combining water, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, sriracha, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, and scallions in a medium bowl. Stir well to dissolve the sugar. Set aside 1/2 cup (120 mL) of the sauce.
- Crumble the pressed tofu into the marinade, ensuring it's well-coated. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- In a medium skillet or wok, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion until translucent, around 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until tender, approximately 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for another minute.
- Add the marinated tofu and its sauce to the pan. Cook until most of the liquid evaporates. Incorporate water chestnuts and scallions. Pour in three-quarters of the reserved sauce. Toss to coat the tofu and heat through. Transfer to a medium bowl.
- Heat canola oil in the same pan over high heat. Drop a little water onto the oil, if it sizzles, it's ready. Fry the rice noodles for about 30 seconds until they puff up. Drain the fried noodles on paper towels.
- Remove the core from the lettuce head and separate into individual leaves.
- Serve the tofu in lettuce cups, topping it with crispy rice noodles and a drizzle of the remaining sauce.
- Enjoy the delicious tofu lettuce cups!
