A copycat adaptation of P.F. Chang's veggie lover lettuce wraps, which can be made ahead for your week after week dinner prep. These delightful wraps are anything but difficult to make, taste better, and are less expensive than take-out.

I infrequently have ground chicken simply sitting in my cooler when I am desiring lettuce wraps so I generally need to prepare to either go out on the town to shop or defrost it from my cooler. Then again, I quite often have a square of tofu in my cooler since it has such a long time span of usability.

So here is my veggie lover neighborly form of P.F. Chang's lettuce wraps. Tofu is utilized as the meat substitute. Tofu functions admirably as a meat substitute since it contains a ton of protein and has a comparative surface to ground chicken.

There are various sorts of tofu including luxurious, delicate, firm, additional firm. For this recipe, you will need to utilize firm or extra-firm tofu. Anything gentler than firm tofu will break an excessive amount of when it cooks.

  3. Stir in water chestnuts and mushrooms and cook until chestnuts and mushrooms are cooked.

Cover skillet with lid to cook a few minutes and allow ingredients to absorb sauce. Remove lid, taste and make any adjustments as needed. If you prefer a little sweeter, you can add a little bit of brown sugar. If you prefer saltier, you can add a little more soy sauce. When finished, remove from heat.
