  • 3 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce reduced sodium
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili paste 
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

Tofu Filling

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 medium garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1 cup minced mushrooms about 4 ounces
  • 14 ounces firm tofu, drained and pressed*
  • 1½ cups cooked U.S.-grown jasmine rice
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
  • 10 leaves crisp butter or Romaine lettuce


  • 5 medium radishes thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • ½ cup chopped cashews
  • minced scallions, cilantro, mint


For the Tofu Filling

  • Heat the olive oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger, and saute for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Do not let the garlic burn!
  • Add the minced mushrooms to the pan. Saute for about 2 minutes until the mushrooms are soft and any liquid has cooked off.
  • Crumble the tofu into the mushrooms, using a spatula to break it up further. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until any liquid has cooked off.
  • Add the sauce to the tofu-mushroom mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Add the rice and reduce the heat to low. The mixture should be moist. If it seems too wet, let it cook for another 2 minutes or until the excess sauce cooks off.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool for 10 minutes. Stir in the green onion, cilantro, and fresh mint.

To Assemble

  • Place 1-2 tablespoons of the tofu filling in the center of each lettuce leaf.
  • Add fresh vegetable toppings, a sprinkle of herbs, and a sprinkle of cashews to each lettuce wrap.
  • Gently fold over to eat.

Recipe Notes

*To ensure your tofu lettuce wraps aren’t watery, drain the tofu and press it for at least 30 minutes before starting the recipe
