Lettuce Wraps

We usually go to Asian restuarants very often. Lettuce wraps is one of our favorite starter. Recently we had been to coconut Thai grill restaurant in Carrolton. They had this wrap and it tasted delicious better than p.f Changs . I was looking for its recipe and i found my blogger friend had it on her blog.I made some changes to the recipe of hers. Here is the original link from Sailajas recipes.


Tofu- 1/2 cup- firm( shredded or cubed)
Iceberg lettuce-1 small
Garlic- 3 cloves minced
Ginger- 1 small inch minced
sweet onion- 1 small
Carrot- 1 chopped in to small pieces
Rosted peanuts- 2 tbspns
Green chillies- 2
Lime juice- 1 tspn
soy sauce- 1tbspn
Dry basil powder- 1/2 tspn
Salt- to taste
Sambal olek sauce and red chilli sauce in oil- As per your taste- You can use any spicy Asian sauce


  • Add oil in a pan. Add minced garlic and ginger and fry it.
  • Add onions, carrot and tofu. Fry for 3 mins. Add green chillies and saute for a while by adding salt and sauces. Remove from heat and top it up with roasted peanuts and sprinkle dry basil powder.
  • Cut off the stem part of the Iceburg lettuce so it's easier to separate the leaves.I could not separate as i had used lettuce for some other salad preparation.
  • Place your stir fried filling on lettuce and enjoy it with your fav topping sauce.
  • Healthy and tasty!!!
