A larb is a spicy Thai appetizer. This is for tofu but can be easily substituted with my personal preference of ground chicken or even turkey.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 5 ingredients, stirring until sugar dissolves; set aside.
  2. Spread tofu in a single layer onto several layers of paper towels; cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 15 minutes, pressing down occasionally.
  3. Heat oils in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and chiles; sauté 3 minutes.
  4. Add tofu; cook 8 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Stir in juice mixture; cook 1 minute or until heated. Remove from heat; stir in basil and mint. Spoon about 1/2 cup tofu mixture into each cabbage leaf.

This was so yummy!! I added chopped peanuts, red bell pepper and some chopped green onion --all of which worked marvelously! I'll definitely make this again!

Delicious! We loved this. I made a couple of minor changess to make this fit my diet, such as decreasing the oil. The flavorings in this are really, really tasty. It is super spicy! Served this as a main dish with the cabbage leaves and brown rice. I will make this again for sure. Thanks for posting.
