Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are a delicious and healthy way to enjoy fresh vegetables, herbs and tofu wrapped in rice paper. They are easy to make at home and can be customized with your favorite fillings. In this recipe, we’ll show you how to make spring rolls with daikon radish, avocado and mint for a refreshing and satisfying meal or snack.

Ingredients

  • 12 rice paper wrappers (8-inch diameter)
  • 12 lettuce leaves (romaine, butter or green leaf)
  • 1 large daikon radish, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks
  • 2 ripe avocados, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 12 ounces baked tofu, cut into thin strips (you can use store-bought or make your own)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Water, as needed to thin

Instructions

  1. To make the peanut sauce, whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth and creamy. Add water as needed to adjust the consistency. Set aside or refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. To make the spring rolls, fill a large shallow dish with warm water. Dip one rice paper wrapper in the water for a few seconds until soft and pliable. Lay it flat on a cutting board or a clean damp towel.
  3. Place a lettuce leaf on the lower third of the wrapper, leaving some space around the edges. Top with some daikon, avocado, mint, cilantro and tofu. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  4. Fold the bottom edge of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the sides. Roll up tightly from the bottom to the top, tucking in the filling as you go. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and fillings.
  5. Cut the spring rolls in half and serve with the peanut sauce for dipping. Enjoy!
