Peanut Tofu Lettuce Wraps (Vegan, Gluten Free)

These tofu lettuce wraps are the perfect light meal for a warm summer night. Tofu and mushrooms are sautéed, then drenched in creamy peanut sauce before served on crunchy lettuce!



Peanut Sauce


  1. Heat avocado oil in a large skillet on medium heat.
  2. Add mushrooms and half of the green onions to the skillet, cooking for 2-3 minutes until mushrooms begin to release their liquid.
  3. Use your hands to crumble the tofu into small chunks directly into the skillet. Continue cooking for 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tofu begins to brown nicely and mushrooms are cooked through.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the peanut sauce by whisking together all peanut sauce ingredients in a small mixing bowl until smooth and creamy.
  5. Once tofu is done, remove from heat. Stir in water chestnuts and peanut sauce until everything is evenly coated.
  6. Scoop about 1/4 cup of tofu mixture into each lettuce leaf. Top each lettuce wrap with a sprinkle of the remaining green onion, crushed peanuts, and fresno chili slices.
