Directions

  1. Roast peanuts in a skillet over high heat, stirring frequently until brown, reducing heat to medium if necessary, about 5 minutes; set aside to cool. In a food processor, grind peanuts into a coarse powder.
  2. Heat canola oil in a skillet over medium heat; add tofu and season with salt to taste. Turn tofu frequently until all sides are brown, 8 to 10 minutes; remove from heat. Pat tofu dry with a paper towel and allow to cool, about 5 minutes.
  3. Combine cucumber, radish, tomato, water chestnuts, soy sauce, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add tofu and peanut powder just before serving.
  4. Arrange lettuce leaves around the edge of a large platter and mound tofu filling in the center. To eat, spoon 1 or 2 tablespoons tofu mixture into the center of a leaf and wrap lettuce around filling like a burrito.

I altered the recipe a bit and added garlic sauce to make it a bit spicier. Yummy!

I did not care for this recipe. I didn't even use the radishes and water chestnuts and I didn't like it. Way too much soy sauce and tasted very strange. I've had great lettuce wraps and these are not them!
