Quick & Healthy Meal Idea: Asian Lettuce Wraps


Everyone knows that eating with your hands is way more fun. As an added bonus, Ayurveda considers it essential for proper digestion! In any case, I wanted to make a lower carb dinner the other night and decided to recreate one of my favorite hand-held meals from Su Tao named "In the Forrest."

To make, what Mr. Scissors called "Asian Tacos," dice veggies of your choice into super small cubes and fry in a mixture of oil, sesame oil, seasonings (garlic, ginger, red pepper, and any other Asian-styled seasonings you would like), and tamari or soy sauce. Add similarly cut pre-baked and marinated tofu pieces to the veggie mixture and fry a bit more. Serve on washed lettuce leaves (Romaine or Boston works well), top with something crunchy (almonds, peanuts, cashews, fried chow mein noodles, etc. ) and Sriracha and maybe an extra sauce (I used a ginger dressing). I included a hoison sauce for dipping, but a plum sauce would also work. Total time from start to finish, about 20 minutes and totally better than fast food.
