Vegetable and Tofu Lettuce Wraps with Miso Sambal

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 2 wraps)
In this appetizer, the fresh flavors of the vegetables come alive with the spicy, gingery sambal. This popular Indonesian condiment takes on many variations of the basic combination of chiles, brown sugar, and salt. Prepare a double batch, and serve the extra with fish. The creamy texture of the avocado pieces and tofu slices are a pleasant contrast to the crisp vegetables.

Ingredients

  • Miso sambal:
  • 2 tablespoons chile paste with garlic (such as Sambal oelek)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons white miso (soybean paste)
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • Wraps:
  • 1 cup matchstick-cut English cucumber
  • 1/2 cup cilantro sprigs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1 (12.3-ounce) package reduced-fat firm tofu, drained and cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 12 large Boston lettuce leaves
