Tofu lettuce wraps

I made these for the first time last night....they tasted amazing. I also added sour cream and next time I will add diced tomato as a garnish as well


Ingredients

2 teaspoons peanut oil
1 package firm tofu (12- to 14-ounce size)
1/4 teaspoon chili powder, or more to taste
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 green onions, sliced
2 ears fresh corn, kernels cut off the cobs
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
6 large inner leaves romaine lettuce (from a romaine heart)
2 avocados, sliced

Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Throw in the tofu and break it up into very small pieces. Cook until much of the liquid cooks off and the tofu starts to turn golden, for several minutes.

Add the chili powder and some salt and pepper, then stir. Throw in the green onions and corn and cook for a few minutes (the corn can remain crunchy). Add the soy sauce and cook until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Turn off the heat and stir in the balsamic vinegar.

Pile the mixture into individual romaine lettuce leaves, then add slices of avocado. Fold up and chow down!

No.

Add 2 roma tomatoes after the seeds have been squeezed out chopped fine, and some coriander (ground!)....I'd go about half the amount of cumin on that. Also some salt unless you have a serious health issue.

So why is this poor recipe polluting DP enquiring minds would like to know(at least mine)?. Have you made it? Were you impressed? Does it just sound good? Are you spamming the site?

What gives, Friend?

A good side dish for seafood like tuna steak or maybe some mahi mahi.

It is not possible for tofu to taste "amazing". It is a foul, vile concoction, and is of the debil. What likely happened is, the rest of the ingredients in your recipe masked the tofu enough to effectively render it null and void. :D

That would go well with my fry bread. It's not vegan though, and I never make it from a recipe.
Just bloom some yeast, agave syrup, water, a bit of salt.
Add some wheat gluten and wheat germ, flour, ( you want a thin pancake like consistency) more salt to taste, freshly ground pepper.
That's the base. Depending on what direction I want to take it, I might add some MEern spices, Italian spices, or in this case, may be some Adobo and cilantro.
I like to sweat some garlic and thinly shaved jalapeno, let it cool and add it to the dough.
Just fry it until golden brown and crispy.

That's what I thought too. The trick is draining the tofu properly. It then absorbs just about any flavor you like.
My favorite tofu concoction is drained, soaking up a mixture of soy sauce, sriracha, ginger, then crust it with finely ground pecans. Fry it until golden brown, serve it with some asian slaw. Really good.

Black beans have a deep rich flavor. I am very fond of canellini beans for their creamy flavor. Just try some other type of beans and let us know.

Sounds great, thanks for the recipe.

I challenge you to look at the first 5 recipes you can find on the internet for black bean/corn salsa, then tell us how many dont have tomato. Almost none will be the answer, for good reason. Ditto for salt.

Good recipe....Not.

In my opinion.

I love mango salsa....:thumbs:

Best use is putting it in the blender with a commercial BBQ sauce 2/1 ratio, and using the result as a wing sauce.

OMG.
