Meatless Monday with P.F. Chang’s Copycat Vegan Tofu Lettuce Wraps

Welcome to the Miratel blog for our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Tofu is an incredibly versatile protein for vegans because it can take on a variety of flavours and textures as we have showcased here in recipes like Baked Sriracha Tofu, Dubu Jorim: Korean Spicy Braised Tofu, Sweet & Spicy Cola Tofu, Crispy Chipotle Tofu, Maple Sesame Tofu, Beer Battered Fish Tofu and Tofu Sticky Fingers with Blue Cheese Sauce. We continue today with the very tasty P.F. Chang’s Copycat Vegan Tofu Lettuce Wraps. According to the chef who created this great recipe, “Deliciously simple vegan and gluten-free lettuce wraps, made with tofu. They taste exactly like the PF Chang’s version but they’re made with simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. The firm tofu is lightly fried with tender mushrooms, crunchy carrots, and a bit of garlic and ginger before it’s slathered in a tangy sauce and then served wrapped in fresh butter lettuce.” This delicious recipe comes courtesy of Karlie Kashat of Karl Cooks, an amazing gluten-free, vegan/vegetarian recipe site with great images, via the consistently inspiring One Green Planet.
