There is a restaurant here in Toronto that makes the meanest lettuce wraps. I find it exceedingly difficult to order anything BUT them when I dine there. Dining in isn’t happening at this time so what does one do instead? Why create them yourself that’s what. I love going to restaurants. I myself worked in them for 20 years. They were my bread and butter, my other lover, my downfall and my resurrection. I grew up there, cultivated my addictions there and got sober there. I miss the energy, the camaraderie and the guests that became friends BUT I don’t miss the late nights, long days and the endless, thankless work that came with the job.
All that to say I learned a thing or two about a thing or two in those establishments. From how to manage my time to how to cook. Grateful doesn’t begin to cut it. What does this little rant have to do with today’s post? Not much except that I love lettuce wraps and now you will get to make them too!
I took my BBQ TOFU recipe and doubled it for this dish. If you haven’t made my life changing BBQ TOFU yet, you really should. It is beyond delicious.
I added 1/2 head of cauliflower to a block of tofu but a whole head of cauliflower would work too as my recipe here was very saucy. Extra sauce = happiness.
This dish has all the elements!
If you’d like garnish, here’s what you’ll need:
This dish has some heat from the sriracha and cayenne. I love spice so it works for me, BUT if you are making it for kids or don’t have a tolerance for spice reduce them.
Once the tofu and cauliflower are done, the rest is easy peasy! This dish would be perfect for a jazzed up weeknight meal or a dinner party. Set up all your elements on plates and bowls and let each individual create their own wrap.
