For an easy and light meal, try these simple tofu lettuce wraps. Even the most picky meat eaters will love these. Enjoy!

 

While watching the Pioneer Women recently, she  made a delicious recipe for tofu lettuce wraps.

I loved her idea of wrapping in a lettuce leaf.

Deciding to make these for lunch when both my husband and son wouldn’t think of eating tofu was a hard decision of mine.

Should I give it a go and hope they’ll even try these tofu lettuce wraps? 

I went with it. ? 

They looked at me funny and my husband said that it looks like a colorful plate.

I told them both to just trust me. So, we all took a bite at the same time.

They really liked these!

To be honest, I had a backup lunch waiting for them just in case.

I was so glad I didn’t  even need to tell them about it.

This simple recipe is so tasty and easy to prepare that I make it all the time for just me.

Then, I keep the leftover tofu mixture in the fridge for the next day.

Give it a try and you’ll know what I mean after the first bite.
