Baked Tofu Lettuce Wraps with Sweet Chili Sauce

This is my favorite type of meal - quick, fresh and full of flavor. The crisp butter lettuce leaves make a perfect bed for the toasty tofu cubes and crunchy garnishes. And this sauce is deliciously sweet and spicy. If you have any leftover tofu, this also works great served over rice noodles.

1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place tofu on top and spray lightly with cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, place sauce ingredients in a large skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until thickened. Add the baked tofu and toss until well coated.



3. Place lettuce leaves on a serving platter and scoop tofu onto the center of each one. Garnish with green onion, carrots and peanuts.

  1. When I went to Canada last summer I tried tofu in a Chinese restaurant and I really liked it. But I didn’t know about this recipe of tofu wraps. Will surely give it a try
