Ahh!! I love lettuce wraps, don’t you? .Very few restaurants serve the vegetarian lettuce wraps. This homemade lettuce wraps is a perfect meal and for those who steer clear of tofu, you might want to try this recipe. You will want more of it. There are nights when our family will eat just this for dinner along with some soup. It is a heart and satisfying meal.


 

You cannot go wrong making this even for your next party, as an appetizer.Just dont put the lettuce leaves in a vase like I did. No one touched the leaves thinking it was an arrangement .Guests started using the nachos to pick up the tofu .
