Pun - Thai Lao Lettuce Wraps

It has been a while since my last post and today, I felt ambitious and decided to cook, video tape, and share my Thai and Lao recipes with you.

This recipe is called "Pun" and it means "to wrap". When I host a dinner party for just the girls, I like to prepare pun because we'll eat and socialize and never feel full. Basically, it is a finger food salad recipe. Here's to your health. Cheers!

I grilled firm tofu but you can also pun with Chicken & Shrimp curry skewers, and Fish with Thai Lao Herbs.

Appetizer Recipe: Pun Tofu
Lettuce of any type: Radicchio, Romain, and Boston
chopped tomatoes
chopped cucumber
chopped green onions
chopped coriander or mint
bean sprouts
Spring Roll Dipping Sauce
vermicelli noodle bundle

Tear a piece of lettuce to the size of your palm. Load the listed ingredients on top of the lettuce. Spoon in dipping sauce, wrap, and enjoy. Make sure each lettuce wrap is small so it fits into your mouth.
