Meatless Monday, Anyone? These asian tofu lettuce wraps are the first tofu recipe I’ve ever been in love with!
If you’re not into tofu you can swap out proteins, this recipe is great because it’s so versatile. The protein can easily be switched out for shrimp, steak or chicken or anything! Any ingredient in the sauce can easily be adjusted and there are endless toppings to please every person.
It a great meal for a party, a busy weeknight, or when you’re craving Asian food takeout! My lettuce wraps always turn into salads since I am a messy person but they still taste amazing. Bring leftovers the next day and I guarantee your coworkers will be asking where you got it.
