Vegan and Gluten Free Asian Tofu Lettuce Wraps RecipeI love yummy appetizers! They are so fun to share and sometimes I make a meal of them just on their own! I’ve veganized my favorite appetizer from PF Changs, the veggie lettuce wraps, and now I’m sharing them with you! Enjoy ; )

Sauce for Tofu

  • 2 tablespoons agave
  • 1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons wheat free tamari or BRAGG Liquid Aminos or lite soy sauce


  • 1 tablespoon safflower or other high heat  oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 14 oz block of extra firm tofu, pressed, drained and cut into 1/4″ cubes
  • 1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, diced
  • 1/2 cup button mushrooms, diced
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8-10 Butter Lettuce Leaves (or lettuce wrap leave sof choice – cabbage, romaine, etc), for serving
  • 1/2 cup chopped peanuts or cashews for garnish
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions, for garnish

Dipping Sauce

  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 tablespoon wheat free tamari or BRAGG Liquid Aminos or lite soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard

Prepare lettuce by removing several leaves 8-10, rinse, pat dry with a paper towel and place on serving plate.

To make Dipping Sauce:

Comine agave and warm water in a medium sauce pan. Add the remaining ingredients to the agave & water mix, turn to medium heat and bring to a simmer. Continue cooking approximately 5 minutes. Place the dipping sauce in a bowl for serving and set aside.

To make Tofu:

Prepare sauce first by adding the ingredients in a small bowl and setting aside.

Place high heat oil and sesame oil in a large skillet or wok.

On medium-high heat add cubed tofu and cook until a bit crispy on the outside and browned.

With the tofu still in the skillet add the sauce in along with water chestnuts, mushrooms, onion and garlic. Stir-fry for approximately 4-5  minutes on medium heat.

Place tofu in a bowl with a serving spoon and serve with lettuce leaves, nuts and green onion for sprinkling and dipping sauce so everyone can make their own wraps. Enjoy!
