Low-Amine Teriyaki Tofu Cabbage Wraps

Low-Amine Teriyaki Tofu Cabbage Wraps (low-amine, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, tomato-free, vegetarian, vegan), plated with sauce and ginger.

These cabbage wraps are both light and filling. The flavors are refreshing and hearty at the same time. For a more pliable cabbage wrap, you can blanch or steam the low-amine cabbage, but I prefer mine raw. I was starving, but after eating three low-amine cabbage wraps, was completely stuffed.

1 head cabbage (first 6-10 outside leaves only)

2 blocks firm, organic tofu

1 C soy sauce substitute

1/4 C shallot oil

  • Heat 1 C safflower oil and add 1 shallot, thinly sliced.
  • Cook over medium low until shallot is crisp and golden brown.
  • Reserve shallot as topper for dishes.
  • Oil will keep in the fridge for a couple months.

1 C cilantro, chopped

1/2 Walla Walla / Vidalia sweet onion, sliced into half-rings

2″ ginger, grated

4 green onions, sliced thinly

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp cornstarch

  • Cut tofu into 8 pieces each. Lay them flat in a Pyrex dish and pour soy sauce substitute and shallot oil over the top.

  • Marinate for at least two hours. Halfway through, flip tofu pieces over in the marinade.
  • Peel outside layers of cabbage off carefully to use as cabbage wraps.
  • Prepare cilantro, onion, ginger, and green onion.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil and oil down. Place tofu pieces on foil, and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Pour marinade into a pan, and add garlic powder, salt, and cornstarch. Mix well and turn heat to medium low.
  • Stir constantly until thickened, then remove from heat.
  • When tofu is starting to crisp around the edges, remove from oven and cut into small pieces.
  • Serve all ingredients pre-wrapped in cabbage and held together with toothpicks, or serve as “build your own” at the table.
