8 lettuce wraps


  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 1 (14 ounce) package extra-firm tofu

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 8 ounces white mushrooms, finely chopped

  • 1 cup finely chopped daikon radish

  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 4 scallions, sliced

  • 8 large leaves Bibb or iceberg lettuce

  • ¼ cup Julienned carrots


  1. Combine vinegar, hoisin, soy sauce, sesame oil and crushed red pepper in a small bowl; set aside.

  2. Cut tofu in half horizontally. Press the tofu slices between paper towels to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Crumble the tofu. Heat canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the crumbled tofu; cook, stirring and breaking into smaller pieces, until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms; continue cooking and stirring until any liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes. Stir in daikon, garlic, ginger and scallions. Add the reserved sauce; cook, stirring, until well combined and heated through, about 2 minutes.

  3. Spoon a scant 1/2 cup tofu mixture into each lettuce leaf. Top with carrots, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
