Tofu Spring Roll

Vegetarian spring rolls are all about texture. Inside you have rice vermicelli, crisp vegetables, and usually some type of meat or seafood, but here I decided to go with tofu. The resulting flavors and colors of the spring rolls are delicious. The only downside is that they take a little bit of time to make, but believe me it’s worth it!

 These tofu spring rolls are a classic to prepare for a picnic or a potluck. Fresh and light, they will please everyone—young and old. Dip one into some creamy and slightly spicy peanut sauce. You can eat them whole or cut them into 3 or 4 pieces for small bites to share.

Ingredients

  • 1 block / 500 g extra firm tofu
