Delicious tofu lettuce cups with peanut sauce are a really simple way to enjoy a healthy dinner that is on the table in just 20 minutes! These vegetarian lettuce cups are packed full of flavour and made even more delicious thanks to the super simple homemade peanut sauce.
Mix the brown sugar, soy sauce, chili sauce, lime zest and juice together in a small bowl. Set aside.
Heat the sesame oil in a frying pan over medium/high heat. Use a paper towel to pat dry the tofu to remove any excess liquid and crumble the tofu with your hands into the pan. Add in the chopped water chestnuts. Cook for a few minutes before adding in the sauce and continue cooking for about 5 minutes until the tofu is completely coated in the sauce.
Serve by placing scoops of the tofu mixture into the lettuce leaves and drizzle with peanut sauce and top with a sprinkle of crushed peanuts and an extra squeeze of lime.
