These wraps are powered with protein. Light, healthy, and delicious, they are perfect for an appetizer or quick meal.

Ingredients

 1 tablespoon olive oil
 2 2 packages (7-ounces each) baked tofu, diced
 8 ounces mushrooms, diced
 1 medium onion, diced
 ¾ cup water chestnuts, drained and diced
 ¾ cup celery, diced
 ½ cup chopped, dry roasted cashews
 ½ cup teriyaki sauce
 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
 ¼ cup vegetable stock
 1 head iceberg or butter lettuce, core removed, leaves separated
 Gluten-free tamari or soy sauce for serving

Instructions

1

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté tofu, mushrooms, onion, water chestnuts, and celery 2 to 3 minutes until soft.

2

Reduce heat to medium, and stir in cashews, teriyaki sauce, vinegar, and vegetable stock. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes.

3

Spoon tofu mixture into the center of each piece of lettuce leaf and drizzle with tamari or soy sauce, if desired. Wrap the lettuce around the filling and eat like a taco.

Note
Packaged baked tofu was used in this recipe for ease and enhanced flavor. It also makes this a lower fat recipe (as opposed to frying the tofu). You can find this product in many grocery stores, Asian stores, and most natural foods stores.

The tofu filling is equally delicious in a corn or flour tortilla.
