Ingredients for Tofu Scramble Lettuce Wraps
- Tofu (of course)
- Olive oil
- Chili peppers for a little heat
- Some bell pepper and corn for crunch
- Black beans for added oomph
- Lime juice for a little zest
- And, obviously, lettuce for making the wraps
What Type of Tofu Should I Use?
Use firm or extra firm tofu. It’s not necessary to press any of the moisture out of the tofu. Open up and proceed with the recipe.
And tofu scramble is super easy to prepare! I love to use my food processor. Place cubes of tofu into the food processor and process until you’ve reached your desired texture. Then? Just go ahead with the recipe. Easy, right?
Wait, no food processor?
If you don’t have a food processor, no worries. You can also place the cubed tofu in a bowl (or directly in the pan) and break up with a potato masher or wooden spoon.
Tips for Making Lettuce Wraps
- I just barely cook the bell peppers when I’m frying the mixture out. love to have a little texture on them. Use whatever colour you have on hand.
- These lettuce wraps have loads of flavour, but garnish is highly recommended (because I loves me some garnish). I particularly love pickled red onions and salsa. Avocado is delicious too!
- If you like more (or less) spice, simply adjust the chili to taste.
Other Ways To Enjoy Scrambled Tofu
Aside from enjoying these tofu wraps as they are, these are delicious options for the scrambled tofu:
- Enjoy with flour or corn tortillas.
- Serve over nachos instead of meat.
- Enjoy with rice, quinoa or couscous for a light lunch (another personal fave of mine!).
- Have for breakfast with an egg.
