A chance to play with food
April 23, 2016
Tofu lettuce wraps
Tofu is one of my all time favourites, I can eat it plain, straight from the pack, no flavourings at all, I LOVE it that much! My sister is the same. That’s as far as genetic influence goes though. My kids will try most things, tofu included, but preferably drenched in sauce. It’s like watching them swallow bitter tasting medicine, eyes closed, noses pinched, down the hatch bypassing any sensory contact. However, hidden amongst a load of veggies plus a chance to play with their food, this recipe has even been described by my two as “quite good even though it’s healthy” HAHAHA. That’s good enough for me!
Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan over a medium flame.
Add the garlic and shallots, stir fry for a couple of minutes until fragrant.
Toss in the carrots and celery, continue to stir fry for 5 minutes before adding the oyster and soy sauces, shiitake mushrooms, chilli flakes and vegetable stock. Bring the mixture to the boil, pour in the cornflour paste and mix well.
Gently stir in the tofu to warm through, season with black pepper and sprinkle over with peanuts.
To serve, take a lettuce leaf, spoon some of the tofu vegetable mixture on the top. Enjoy!
