Ingredients:

  • Sauce:

    • 3 tbsp soy sauce (gluten-free if needed)

    • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce

    • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar 

    • 1 tsp sesame oil 

    • 2 cloves garlic, minced 

    • black pepper, to taste 

  • Filling:

    • 1 block firm tofu (~350 g), crumbled or cubed 

    • 1/2 medium onion, diced 

    • 1/2 medium carrot, diced 

    • 4 cremini mushrooms, diced 

    • 1 green onion, sliced 

    • vegetable oil

  • Wraps:

    • ~8 large romaine leaves

Instructions:

  1. Sauce: In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, minced garlic, and black pepper. Stir well.

  2. Tofu: In a medium pan, heat some vegetable oil in medium-high heat. Fry the cubed/crumbled tofu until golden and crispy (~5 minutes). Add approximately half of the sauce, and coat the tofu well. Set the tofu aside on a plate.

  3. Vegetables: In a medium pan, heat some vegetable oil in medium-high heat. Add the diced onions, and sweat them out for ~4 minutes before adding the carrots and mushrooms. Cook the vegetables for another 3 to 4 minutes, and add in the rest of the sauce. Sauté until the sauce is absorbed (~2 to 3 minutes), and toss in the tofu to combine.

  4. Assembly: Spoon the filling into the romaine leaves. Garnish with green onions & enjoy!

  • Tip: Top with avocado and/or peanuts for an extra li’l something :)
