Glazed Mixed Veggie Lettuce Wraps
- Gluten Free
- Low Carb/Paleo
Why we love it:
- 1 cup Basmati Rice (Brown)
- 21⁄2 cups Water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 3 Tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
- 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
- 2 Tablespoons Rice Vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
- 1 Sweet Potato (small)
- 2 teaspoons Canola Oil
- 8 ounces Cremini Mushrooms
- 1 Carrot
- 1 Red Bell Pepper
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 4 Green Onions
- 1 package Firm Tofu (extra firm, 12 to 14 ounces)
- 1 head Butter Lettuce (or romaine, etc.)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon Sriracha (optional)
Bring rice, water, and salt to a boil in a small pot. Stir well then reduce to low heat and cover. Steam for 27 - 30 minutes, without opening the lid, or until tender and water has evaporated. Let sit off the heat until you’re ready to serve.
In a small bowl, stir together the hoisin, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Set aside.
3. SWEET POTATO
Wash the sweet potato and slice into small cubes. Keep them under about ⅓” square so they’ll cook quickly.
Heat the 2 teaspoons of canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add the sweet potato and cover. Stir occasionally and cook for about 6 minutes until mostly softened. While the sweet potato cooks, slice the mushrooms, carrots, and red pepper. Mince garlic. Slice the green onions.
Leave the lid off and crumble in the tofu, breaking it into small pieces as it cooks. Add the diced mushrooms, carrots, garlic, and pepper. Continue cooking until any remaining tofu liquid cooks off and the tofu starts to turn golden and veggies are tender; about 3 minutes more. Add ½ of the green onion.
Pour the sauce over the top of the tofu mixture and stir to coat. Cook just until you hear bubbling and the sauce is warmed through; about 1 minute. Turn off the heat and stir in the remaining green onion.
Wash leaves and separate into little cups. Let them dry or use a salad spinner to get most of the water off.
Spoon the mixture into individual lettuce leaves and roll up to serve with rice on the side or inside the rolls. Serve with sriracha to taste.
