Instant Pot Vegan Keto Tofu Lettuce Wraps

The first time I tried this recipe I thought it was INSANE, to try and cook tofu in an Instant Pot. Just....why?!

Okay well, let me tell you why! It completely changes the texture of the tofu and makes it incredibly delicious. Oh, and let's not forget the sauce! The almond butter and sambal oelek combination are out of this world! Slightly sweet, and slightly spicy, but completely delicious.

How to cook Instant Pot Vegan Keto Tofu Lettuce Wraps

  1. Remove the tofu from its container then wrap in paper towels.  Set a heavy object on top of it to press out any excess water.  Let sit for 5-10 minutes, then dice and set aside.
  2. In a bowl mix together the main dish's soy sauce, sambal oelek, almond butter, rice vinegar, salt, and Swerve brown.
  3. Turn your Instant Pot onto it's medium saute setting.  Adjust temperate if needed.  Add the sesame oil and sambal oelek.  Then add in the garlic powder and minced ginger.  Saute for a couple of minutes before adding in the mushrooms and tofu.
  4. Saute the mushrooms and tofu for several minutes, then pour in the sauce you just made.  Mix in 1/2 a cup of water.
  5. Turn off the saute function, then turn on the pressure cooking function.  Set it to low, and adjust the time for 3 minutes.  Make sure the vent is set to seal, then allow to complete it's cooking process.
  6. While the tofu is cooking, you can premake the sauce that goes on top.  Mix together all of the sauce to top with ingredients.  It will be very thick, so add in at least 4 tablespoons of water to think it out.  You can add more if you'd like it even thinner. 
  7. Peel the head of lettuce apart and wash the leaves.
  8. Do a quick release on the Instant Pot once it's done.  Remove the lid then mix in the chopped cilantro. 
  9. Serve the tofu on the butter lettuce leaves, spoon the sauce on top, then garnish with chopped cilantro and sesame seeds. 


Make sure that you use a sugar-free almond butter. You can substitute regular erythritol for the Swerve brown if needed.
