Have you ever desired those unique flavors of Banh Mi, but, when confronted with a load of carby bread, you found yourself just moving towards the salad bar? No? No one? Bueller? Well, ok, say instead you're eating healthy, trying to fit into that swimsuit for spring break, and you just can't budget in bread. These lettuce bunches bring you an amazing and unique flavor, with a nice crunch to tie it all together. Bread-free and healthy doesn't mean forgoing any flavor. Tip: Most jalapeño seeds are found between the stem and halfway down the pepper. Slicing rounds from the tip and using to taste can lessen the spice while still enjoying all the flavor.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Separate leaves of lettuce for wraps. To re-crisp lettuce cups, soak in icy, cold water, 5 minutes. Thoroughly dry. Lettuce cups are a delicious but messy meal. For this recipe, they can easily be converted to a salad. Simply chop romaine and top with filling after completing steps.

    Drain tofu. Line a plate with paper towels. Cut tofu into 1" dice. Place on towel-lined plate. Top with paper towels, then press gently but firmly to remove excess moisture. Season all over with Asian garlic, ginger & chile seasoning (use less if spice-averse) and 1/4 tsp. salt.

    Using hands, tear cilantro leaves.

    Peel and halve shallot. Cut halves into 1/4" dice.

    Slice jalapeño into thin rounds. Remove seeds for less spice. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

  2. 2

    Cook the Tofu

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.

    Add half the shallots (reserve remaining for slaw) and tofu to hot pan. Stir occasionally until golden brown, 6-8 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    While tofu cooks, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Make the Slaw

    In a mixing bowl, combine vinegar, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, slaw mix, remaining shallots, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Make Sriracha Mayonnaise and Finish Dish

    In another mixing bowl, combine mayonnaise and Sriracha (to taste).

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing tofu in lettuce cups. Layer two lettuce cups for extra crunch and structural support. You should have about 5-6 total. Top with slaw, cilantro, Sriracha mayonnaise (to taste), and jalapeños (to taste). Bon appétit!
