Tofu Summer Rolls

These tofu summer rolls are refreshing and delicious but even better when dipped into the rich satay sauce that comes with this recipe. The rolls are perfect for eating on a hot summer’s day and they’re great for sharing with guests. You can make the rolls ahead of time OR you can prepare the tofu and chop all the vegies and get your guests to join in on the fun of filling and rolling the rolls.

The crunchiness of the fresh cucumber and carrot, the freshness of the mint and Thai basil and the chewiness of the tofu work really well together. Oh, and let’s not forget the avocado that adds a necessary creaminess to the mix. Further, the dark satay sauce is the perfect complement to the fresh rice paper rolls.

Summer Rolls Assembly
