    VegSocialWorker's Note:

    This untried recipe is from the July/August 08 Vegetarian Times. Once the skewers come off of the grill, you put the contents into lettuce cups along with some herbs, roll and dip into a sauce. This sounds wonderful and I can't wait for our next barbecue to try this out. I added basil leaves to this recipe, because mint and basil are so tasty together in Thai dishes. I will also serve with red chile sauce to add the the rolls.

      This was OK, but not worth the time involved. Note, I broiled these in a gas oven and didn't use a grill. One problem in the directions - I couldn't puree the lemon grass, shallot and ginger in my food processor, there was not enough material. I wound up adding half of the liquid ingredients and then processing. Probably would have been fine if I had just minced them. Also, although I had just tried a meat and vegetable lettuce wrap recipe & my family loved it, this didn't seem to work with the lettuce. We all agreed the tofu was better eaten with a fork outside the lettuce. I think the lettuce wrap concept works better if the contents are chopped up, but you can't do that if you want to grill the tofu. Made for Vegn Recipe Swap 2
