Tofu Lettuce Wraps

Tofu Lettuce Wraps

Tofu Lettuce Wraps are a light and crispy appetizer that are perfect for summer. This recipe is super easy to make! We made a simple peanut sauce, but you could substitute for a sriracha mayo or ginger sesame dressing.


Serves: 3-5 Time: 40 minutes plus 20-30 minutes prep

Tofu Lettuce Wraps

  • 1 block extra firm tofu, pressed
  • 1 Tbs corn starch
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbs sesame oil
  • 8-10 lettuce leaves, rinsed & dried
  • 1/2 large carrot, peeled & thinly sliced
  • 1 small cucumber, thinly sliced

Spicy Peanut Butter Dressing

  • 2 Heaping Tbs creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sriracha
  • 1 Tbs soy sauce


  1. Begin by pressing the tofu. Remove from the packaging, wrap in a few paper towels. Leave the wrapped tofu block on a plate and press using a cast-iron on top of the tofu or use a cutting board weighed down with books.
  2. Press the tofu for at least 20 minutes.
  3. Then, after the tofu is pressed, preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  4. Unwrap the tofu, drain excess liquid. Cut the block into even rectangles, about 1/2 inch thick.
  5. In a mixing bowl, combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Mix together well and add the tofu, evenly tossing until fully covered.
  6. Place the tofu onto a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly crisp on the outside.
  7. While the tofu bakes, prepare the lettuce, carrot, and cucumber and mix together the peanut sauce ingredients into a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
  8. Assemble the lettuce wraps with the baked tofu, veggies, and top with peanut sauce and extra sriracha if desired!
