lettuce rejoice

Here is a delicious way to stir-fry lettuce. When else are you going to consume a whole head of romaine in one go?

Get yourself a half pound of tofu, 2-3 cloves of garlic and a similar quantity of ginger, salt and pepper, and oyster sauce. Coconut oil for frying.

Cube the tofu and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Slice up the garlic and ginger. Cut the lettuce into one inch pieces.

Stir-fry the tofu first. When it looks golden, add the garlic and ginger and then when you're good and ready add the lettuce and fry for about 2 minutes. You want the heart of the romaine to remain crispy, oh yes you do.
Almost done! Throw down some oyster sauce up in there.

Top with black sesame seeds and large flakes of toasted coconut for the extra crunch factor.

My stir-fry is ready for its closeup.

Enjoy, then go lie down in a park and look at the clouds.
