RECIPE OF THE WEEK | Lettuce Wraps with Shiitake Mushrooms
The lettuce in this recipe serves as a vessel for a very flavorful shiitake filling. Feel free to use any type of lettuce or even cabbage if you wish.
Makes 4 servings
1 8 oz. package ready-to-eat, seasoned tofu (Soy Boy’s Tofu Lin works well)
salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, to taste
soy sauce to taste
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped ginger
2 1/2 cups shiitake mushrooms, chopped
carrot cut into fine strips
1 head lettuce, use large leaves
Stir fry chopped garlic, ginger and carrot with some water in wok for a few minutes until soft.
Add the shiitakes, soy sauce, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
Cook about another 5-10 minutes, then add the dried tofu and finish up the cooking, about 2-5 minutes. Spoon the mixture into the lettuce/cabbage leaves, add a few drops of lemon juice, and roll them up!
