Tofu Lettuce Wraps
1 pound extra firm tofu, drained and diced to bite sized squares
salt and pepper, to taste
red pepper flakes, to taste
tamari soy sauce or Bragg's, to taste
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons chopped ginger
2 1/2 cups shiitake mushrooms, chopped
1 head lettuce or Napa cabbage, large leaves removed
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread tofu out on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and soy sauce. Bake for 35-45 minutes.
2. When that is almost done, heat up wok or frying pan and throw in the chopped garlic and ginger. Fry for about 5-7 minutes until they are softer. Throw in the shiitakes.
3. At this time, you can add more soy sauce, usually about 4 or 5 shakes. Also, if you’d like, some more salt and pepper and red pepper flakes.
4. Cook about another 10-12 minutes, then add the tofu and finish up the cooking, about 2-5 minutes. Spoon the mixture into the lettuce/cabbage leaves and roll them up!
