This works great for a delicious lunch or dinner. It may seem like a lot of steps, but this is actually fairly easy to make. Feel free to experiment with the spring roll and peanut sauce ingredients. This recipe makes 8 spring rolls, which is good for 2-3 servings.

Ingredients for spring rolls:

8 Spring roll wrappers
1 cup rice or 8 oz. rice noodles, cooked and cooled to room temperature
1 cucumber or carrot, peeled and sliced into thin strips
½ sliced avocado
¼ cup of fresh cilantro or parsley
8 oz. firm or extra firm tofu
High heat oil such as olive or avocado

Ingredients for peanut sauce:

¼ cup crunchy peanut butter
1.5 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp apple cider vinegar (may substitute rice vinegar)
1 tsp powdered ginger
¼ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp smoked paprika
2 tbsp warm water

Directions for Spring Rolls:

Cut tofu into 8 slices roughly ¼-inch thick. Press tofu slices between multiple layers of paper towels to remove as much moisture as possible. Pour oil into a medium-sized skillet to roughly a ⅛-inch depth and heat on medium. Once oil is hot (not smoking), add tofu slices. Cook tofu until golden brown on one side (roughly 4 minutes), then flip to cook other side in the same manner. Once cooked, remove tofu from pan and allow to drain on paper towels.

Soften a spring roll wrapper by submerging it in warm water for 10-15 seconds. Lay the wrapper on a cutting board, and place a portioned amount of each of the spring roll ingredients in the middle of the wrapper. Wrap the ingredients by folding the bottom up, then the sides, and then roll it away from you to close the wrapper. Repeat for other 7 spring rolls. The wrapping technique takes some practice, and it may be helpful to watch a video of how it’s done before you try it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pu1Pcf-adY
