Tofu Bahn Mi Lettuce Wraps

tofu bahn mi lettuce wraps

These tofu bahn mi lettuce wraps combine all of the classic flavors you love and make for a creative appetizer or light summer dinner. 




Pickled Vegetables:

  1. Add all of your julienned vegetables (or as many as you can fit!) to a 16 oz wide mouth mason jar.
  2. Whisk the vinegar, water, sugar and salt in a liquid measuring cup and pour over the vegetables until your jar is full. Cover, shake and refrigerate while you prep the rest of the meal.

Tofu Crumbles:

  1. Use paper towels to gently press water out of the tofu block. Flip onto its side, then halve to get two full-size (but shallow) rectangles. Slice each of these pieces into thirds (see photo above). Press more water out as able – the more dry, the more crispy it will get!
  2. Heat canola oil over medium high in a cast iron skillet. Add tofu in a single layer, working in multiple batches if necessary. Fry until browned and crispy, about 5 minutes per side. Once tofu is done, transfer from skillet to a cutting board and chop into small crumbly pieces, turning heat down to medium. Add the crumbles back to the skillet and let sit to get a little bit more crispy.
