Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps

I've been digging through old recipes looking for things I've forgotten about, and this one jumped to the top of my list.
Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps.

There is no good reason why I haven't made these in a while. They are SO good. They're easy. The girls both like them.

So I'm tossing them back in the rotation.


Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps

1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 package firm tofu, drained well (Meatetarians can absolutely sub in ground beef here)
1 cup corn (frozen or fresh, I'm not about to judge you)
1/2 cup carrots cut into "matchsticks"
1/2 cup shelled edamame
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon red chile paste
Lettuce for wrapping all of the other fun stuff up in that list

1. Throw the oil in a large, non-stick skillet and turn the heat on medium. Toss in the block of tofu and shred it with a fork.

2. Keep shredding the tofu as it browns. It's going to take a few minutes for it to cook thoroughly.

3. Once the tofu is a nice golden/light brown color, toss in the corn, carrots, and edamame. Stir things up.

4. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and chile paste. Stir well with a fork.

5. Once the carrots are as soft as you want them (I left them a bit crunchy), toss the sauce in with the veggies and tofu. Stir everything up.

6. Scoop a tablespoon or so of the fun stuff onto a piece of lettuce and wrap it all up like a burrito.

7. Glare at your kid every time she reaches into the bowl of tofu and veggies and grabs a piece of tofu. THAT'S NOT HOW IT'S DONE, MILA AND ALEXIS.

8. Enjoy!
