Tofu Lettuce Wraps

BY : PUBLISHED : October 29th, 2012 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

This dish is a great option for a potluck.  You can also serve it as an appetizer at a dinner party, or just have it as a main dish.  It comes together quickly, and is a pretty healthy option for those looking to watch calories.  If you like things a bit more spicy, add some sriracha!  Serve these with our peanut sauce, or any of your favorite spring roll dips.

The serving size depends on if you are serving it as a main dish or an appetizer.

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $0.95
