Tofu Lettuce Wraps

with an asian slaw

vegan, vegetarian, gluten free

A super simple, asian flavored, inexpensive meal!

I love lettuce wraps, especially when I’m craving something light and fresh. For lettuce wraps, I would suggest buying butter lettuce (or hydroponic lettuce). It holds up really well once you put the ingredients inside. 

The slaw recipe adds great flavor and texture to these wraps. If you’re not a tofu person (trust me, I get it) and want to replace it with something else like chicken, I would definitely still try the slaw for some crunch and flavor. 

These wraps are full of inexpensive protein and nutritious veggies plus they're colorful and easy-to-make so they’re perfect for family dinner or a night with friends. 

I hope y’all love this recipe as much as I did!!!
