Lettuce Wraps

A couple of my good friends got married recently. They always tell me how much they love my food, so for their gift I made them a cookbook. Another friend told me about this site,, so that's where I organized everything and had it printed up. It turned out beautifully; if anyone's interested in making up a cookbook, I'd definitely recommend Tastebook.

I went through all my cookbooks to pick out the best of the best recipes, and it was hard to narrow it down. I also found new ones I wanted to try, like these lettuce wraps above from The Vegan Table. It makes up a tofu and pepper mixture (I added some shiitake mushrooms), and a sauce which gets combined with cucumber, basil, and of course hot sauce in a lettuce leaf. These were pretty good. The tofu mixture was a bit watery, so I'd recommend pressing the tofu real well before cooking. Water chestnuts would have made a good addition to the tofu mixture as well.


  1. Wow I had no idea that such a thing existed. Printing out my own cookbook would be so fun and the prices aren't that bad. Thank you so much for sharing this!

  2. @Jacklyn: no problem. I thought it was really cool too! The formatting took a bit of time, but the finished product looked great, and you can add your own photos!

  3. What a neat idea! I'm sure they're going to love their gift:) I'll definitely have to keep this in mind for the future! Thanks for sharing!
