I was craving these the other day, but I haven't had any good lettuce wraps anywhere since I went vegan. I decided to create some of my own with flavors I remember from my pre-vegan days. I wanted a rich, sweet bbq-type sauce. I think I've created that in this application. If you're feeding more than two people, I suggest doubling the recipe. I also think this would be phenomenal over rice. If you do decide to serve it over rice, double the cooking sauce so it's a little saucier. Also, try mushrooms instead of tofu if you want.
It's not Thanksgiving without green bean casserole, in my humble opinion. I don't usually make it any other time, but when I do make it, I eat the eff out of it.
I'm also of the thought that if it doesn't have fried onions on it, it's not green bean casserole. So, I set out to create something within those parameters that would satisfy all my family. What came out of this experiment is a rich, creamy delicious casserole that strays from the norm without detracting from the flavor profile. The addition of the white truffle oil makes this sing.
I grew up loving that famous stuffing that you'd make in a pot in 5 minutes. To me, it was perfect. The buttery, savory, hearty, deliciousness that would come out of that box was all I could ever want. So when we started discussing Thanksgiving dinner, I knew what I needed to do.
This was surprisingly simple, and it gave me all the flavor I wanted and then some. Fool your meat eating friends with it. It'll be our little secret.
