Ingredients

  • 1 package tofu (firm or extra firm)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 8 rice paper/spring roll wraps
  • 1 1/2 cup spinach

  • 1 cucumber, cut into small sticks
  • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 4 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Sriracha

Instructions

  • Prepare the tofu by wrapping in a towel and gently press out the excess liquid. Cut the block of tofu in half, lengthwise, and then into strips.
  • In a medium-size container with a lid, prepare the marinade by whisking together the soy sauce, sugar, and black pepper. Add the tofu, cover with the lid, and shake to cover. Allow the tofu to sit for 5 minutes.
  • Using a large non-stick skillet, spray with cooking spray, and add the tofu strips. Allow the tofu to cook on medium-high heat for 4 minutes on one side and then flip and cook an addition 2 minutes on the other side.
  • Prepare the rice paper wraps according to package instructions.
  • Add the cooked tofu, spinach, cabbage, cucumber, and carrots to the rice paper wrap, careful not to overfill or the rice paper wraps will tear. Wrap like a burrito while still damp.
  • Prepare the dipping sauce in a small bowl by stirring together the hoisin sauce, sriracha, and lemon juice. Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

Notes

  • Prepare vegetables by cleaning and cutting before beginning the recipe to speed up the process.  
  • Spring roll/rice paper wrappers can be found in most grocery stores, Asian markets, and Amazon
  • Dip one rice paper wrapper at a time in the water for 15 to 20 seconds, followed by filling with ingredients and rolling immediately. 
  • Try not to overfill the rice paper wrapper with ingredients to prevent tearing.
  • Cut spring rolls in half using a sharp wet knife for easy cutting.
