      1/2  pound         Firm tofu
      1/4  cup           Red onion -- sliced
    1      each          Green onion -- chopped
      1/4  cup           Mint leaves -- chopped
    2      pounds        Assorted vegetables -- chopped
    2      tablespoons   Soy sauce
    2      tablespoons   Lime juice
      1/2  teaspoon      Ground toasted rice*
    1      tablespoon    Ground roasted chilies+
 
 Cut the tofu into cubes.  Set aside on paper towels to drain.  Heat a wok &=
  add the tofu without oil.  Stir-fry until heated through, but not crisp.=
  Put in a mixing bowl.
 
  Add all the remaining ingredients except the assorted vegetables & lettuce.=
   Mix thoroughly.  Line a serving bowl with a layer of lettuce leaves & pour
  the saute over them.  Serve surrounded by rice & assorted vegetables.
 
  *Heat uncooked rice over moderate heat until golden, stirring to prevent
  burning.  When the colour is uniform, remove from heat, cool & gring to a
  powder.  It is best to use a mortar & pestle.
 
  +Roast whole chilies, stems too, in a dry wok until they darken.  Be
  careful that they do not burn.  Cool.  Remove stems & seeds.  Grind.
