Tofu Edamame Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce and radishes keep this dish light and your stomach feeling good.  But when it comes to flavor, light is certainly not the right word to describe these wraps.  Ginger, garlic, garam masala, and hoison sauce team up to create a package full of perfectly blended flavor.  Pair alongside Avocado Quinoa Salad, or any of your favorite grains.

Tofu Edamame Lettuce Wraps

-1 1-inch cube ginger, peeled and minced
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-10 red radishes, finely chopped
-1 cup frozen edamame, shelled
-1 cup Baked Tofu, chopped into 1/4 inch cubes

– 1/4 tsp. garam masala
– 2 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
– 1/3 cup roasted peanuts, chopped
–  8 large romaine or sturdy bibb lettuce leaves
-Hoisin sauce, for drizzling

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add garlic and ginger, and saute for 1 minute.  Add radish and cook for 3 minutes, until radish begins to soften.  Stir in edamame and cook for another 3 minutes.  Add scallions, tofu, soy sauce, Cholula, and garam masala, and saute for another 3 minutes.  Remove from heat, and stir in peanuts and cilantro.

Spoon tofu edamame-mixture into lettuce leaves.  Generoulsy drizzle hoison sauce overtop.  Serve.

    This recipe looks delicious! I have made lettuce wraps with chicken but have never thought to use tofu. The roasted peanuts are such a nice touch.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Lovely. Just divine. I adore lettuce wraps with all my heart. I’m digging the edamame but I’m always hesitant to cook tofu. We’ll see though. Thanks for the recipe! Great photo, very aesthetically pleasing.

    […] different. One of my new favorites are butter beans. Or you could try lentils, adzuki beans, even edamame. Not feeling the beans? Then go for tofu, seitan, or tempeh, like I settled on for this […]
