Budget Savvy Diva has a VERY YUMMY and ORGANIC RECIPE for you :)

Vegan Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 pound extra firm tofu, drained and crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped ginger
  • 1 tablespoon sesame or olive oil
  • ¾ cup diced celery
  • ¾ cup diced carrots
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 head Bibb or Romaine lettuce or Napa cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Heat oil in sauté pan; add ginger, celery and carrots. Stir and sauté for 5-7 minutes until slightly soft. Add tofu, soy sauce and seasoning and stir, cooking for 10 minutes. Add a bit of water in teaspoon increments if tofu is sticking to pan.

Remove from heat, spoon into lettuce leaves, sprinkle sesame seeds on top, roll and enjoy.

Make a spicy peanut dipping sauce by mixing together:

1 clove garlic, minced

3 tablespoons rice vinegar

1/2 cup tamari

1-2 tablespoons Sriracha or chili sauce

1/2 cup organic peanut butter

juice of one lime

2 tablespoons sesame oil

* You can trade out garlic for ginger or omit completely and substitute sunflower butter for peanut allergies.
