I made this recipe this past week. I found a recipe and altered it for the best <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><br>
Tofu Lettuce Wraps<br><br>
Ingredients (use vegan versions):<br><br>
1 head lettuce or Napa cabbage<br>
1 pkg extra firm tofu (drained and pressed)<br>
2 1/2 cups chopped shitake mushrooms<br>
3 tablespoons chopped garlic (fresh)<br>
2 tablespoons chopped ginger (fresh)<br>
cayenne pepper<br>
tamari or soy sauce or Braggs<br><br><br>
Directions:<br><br>
Dice the tofu into small bite size squares. Toss in a bowl with soy sauce to coat. Spray sheet with oil and spread them out on a cookie sheet. Bake for 35-45 minutes at 350.<br><br>
When that is almost done, heat up wok or frying pan with some oil and throw in the chopped up garlic and ginger. Fry for about 5-7 minutes until they are softer. Throw in the shitakes. At this time you can add more soy sauce , usually about 4 or 5 shakes. Also, if you’d like, sprinkle with some cayenne pepper.<br><br>
Cook about another 10 -12 minutes, then add the tofu and finish up the cooking - about 2-5 minutes.<br><br>
Wash and dry the lettuce/cabbage and pull off pieces about the size of your palm.<br><br>
Spoon the mixture into the leafs and roll them up!!<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a290/merigayle/P1000934.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

They were REALLY GOOD!!! I bought the fixins to make them again. I think it is really important to drain and then press your tofu for a couple of hours. I put down a few paper towels, place the tofu on it, then some more paper towels, then a cutting board and pile on a few canned goods. Then i replace the towels after 30-45 mins. This definitely helps with the texture and consistancy of the tofu. I also used firm, not extra firm tofu. It has taken me a long time to perfect tofu cooking and i think i finally have <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif">

i had a 1/3 of an onion in the fridge and sliced it thin and cooked it prior to adding the garlic and ginger and it was a pretty good addition! I also added a picture for your viewing pleasure <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
