Spicy Tofu Lettuce Wraps

These wraps are incredibly hearty, filling, carbless and healthy, loaded with tons of veggies – and the best part is that it takes just 20 min to make!

The start of a new year brings all sorts of resolutions and the attempt for some clean eating before going back to your old ways in 3 weeks. At least that’s how it happens for me.

So as 2013 rolled right in, I decided to make tofu lettuce wraps, trying to make a simple, quick and easy, weeknight meal.

I threw some tofu onto a cast iron skillet…

…sautéed some veggies…

…and cooked it down in a spicy Asian marinade before spooning that onto a Romaine lettuce heart.

I figured this recipe was something I would never revisit again but boy, was I wrong.

Jason started to eat these first since I was busy taking photos. As I kept glancing over to see if he liked it, I realized that he actually loved it. And him being a hardcore meat-and-potatoes type of guy, I never thought in a million years that he’d eat something like this.

He said, “I have no problem eating healthy but most healthy food tastes like crap. Yours doesn’t!”

So there you have it – tofu lettuce wraps that doesn’t taste like crap.
