Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Dipping Sauce – Thailand

Yields: 20 wraps to serve 4 people. This sauce is amazingly delicious and can be used for dipping anything or on top of rice/pasta 😀


For the peanut dipping sauce:

1 cup coconut milk

3 TBS smooth peanut butter

2 TBS soy sauce

1 TBS honey or maple syrup

1 clove garlic

15 drops of tabasco (optional)

For the lettuce wraps:

20 large lettuce leaves

300gr extra firm tofu, drained, patted dry, sliced into half-finger-sized pieces and lightly fried


Blend all peanut dipping sauce ingredients together. Set aside until ready to serve.

To assemble the lettuce wraps, place a piece of tofu, at the leafy end of the lettuce leaf (not the crunchy end). Fold sides of lettuce in, then roll down toward the crunchy end of the leaf. This can be done ahead of time, but I think it’s fun to serve all the components and have each person assemble their own wraps.

Serve with peanut dipping sauce in individual bowls – double-dipping will be necessary 😉 Enjoy!
