And if you’re still not willing to budge on the tofu thing, this recipe would be perfectly delicious with ground meat (of any kind) too.
This tofu has pizzazz. It’s got a firm and satisfying texture and it’s loaded with flavour without the use of a marinade or a bucket of oil for deep frying.
All of that in combination with sweet and crispy veggies and a mouth watering homemade peanut sauce and this quickie meal will have you not only accepting tofu in to your life, but treating it with the respect it deserves.
In addition, if you too are on a quest to prepare lighter fresh tasting meals in the midst of this long winter, this recipe hits the nail on the head.
I originally sought Boston or Bibb lettuce to use for the wraps, but didn’t find any fresh enough for my liking and instead used Iceberg with great crispy success.
You can certainly replace the basmati rice with something more whole grain-y too, or opt to leave it out altogether. Just to be clear though – in no way are carbs the enemy.
I just can’t get over how great this technique for preparing tofu is. And for all you tofu virgins out there, using this technique would be a perfect way for you and tofu to get to know one another. You might even fall in love…
