Mom bought a head of lettuce because it was on sale. Although it is not my favorite vegetables (I prefer dark greens, which are more nutritious anyway), I must applaud its versatility. Lettuce can be presented as a salad (the most common usage), sautéed, shredded and served as another dish’s bedding and of course, a wrap. While I am not aiming for a low-carb dish, I had this sudden urge to use the lettuce leaves to ‘wrap’ something. Then, I was at the Asian supermarket and spotted some firm tofu. So hey, why not a tofu lettuce wrap? It’s healthy, easy to make (also easy to fall apart too….at last…), and quite fun actually.
I served the lettuce rolls with some peanut sauce. A lite, summery meal that will not weigh you down.
