A note about serious food allergies

We've filled lettuce cups with some good proteins over the years, but we can't just leave that to the meat lovers. Our vegetarian friends deserve those great flavors, and the textural contrast between the soft tofu and the crunchy lettuce, as well as the carnivores. Order these up, and enjoy our latest “cup” offering!

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Cut tofu into 1" dice and place on towel-lined plate. Top with paper towels, then press gently but firmly to remove excess moisture. Separate leaves of lettuce for cups. Mince pickled ginger. Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.

  2. 2

    Make the Eggroll Slaw

    In a mixing bowl, combine slaw mix, vinegar, ginger, half the sweet chili sauce (to taste; reserve remaining for sauce), and ¼ tsp. salt. Set aside to let flavors marry, at least 10 minutes. While slaw sits, cook tofu.

  3. 3

    Cook the Tofu

    Line another plate with a paper towel. Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add tofu to hot pan and stir occasionally until golden brown, 7-9 minutes. Don't rush cooking the tofu; it will need the complete cooking time for the correct crispness. Remove from burner. Transfer tofu to towel-lined plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook tofu to medium-low heat. Add white portions of green onions and 1 tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Stir occasionally until slightly tender, 1-2 minutes. Add gochujang (to taste), remaining sweet chili sauce (to taste), soy sauce, and 2 Tbsp. water. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from burner. Gently stir in tofu until coated, 30-60 seconds.

  5. 5

    Assemble Lettuce Cups and Finish Dish

    Stir crispy wontons and green portions of green onions (reserve a pinch for garnish) into slaw until combined. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, filling lettuce cups with tofu mixture and topping with slaw and reserved green portions of green onions. Layer two lettuce cups for extra crunch and structural support, if desired. Bon appétit!
