Tofu Caeser Summer Rolls (Low Carb, gluten Free)
Just Released

Quick to prepare and can be served as an entree or healthy appetizer, this is my take on making homemade Vietnamese still fresh summer rolls at home.

I have had never tried Vietnamese food before, until I spent some time in Seattle where authentic Vietnamese restaurants are plentiful. The best thing I like was there spring rolls, and pretty much I ordered them all the time.

So, I decided to create a version of summer roll with my favorite vegan protein source ‘Tofu’. I’ve wanted to make summer rolls ever since I started this blog, just never got around to it because I always thought it was too much work.

But this summer has really gotten to me, and I’m trying to find any excuse not to switch on my oven. Now that doesn’t always work out, but when it does I’m over the moon with joy. So, determined to succeed, I put on some funky music and prepared everything I needed, for the rolling to go as smooth as possible. Well it did! There were a few that weren’t as tight or had a tear in them, but they still tasted just as good!

This recipe does not require you to cut too many veggies and carefully manage them to roll and not fall apart. The combination of lettuce, Avo’s and tofu creates a perfect blend especially with caeser salad dressing.

  3. Dip one rice paper in a bowl of warm water. Remove when slightly softened and place carefully on a plate lined with a dampened cloth or kitchen towel.
  4. Place a few strips of tofu in the center, top with avocado, and a sprinkle of parmesan. Lastly, top with some lettuce.
  5. Now fold the rice paper around the filling, firstly the sides, and then wrap tightly. Set the finished roll aside on your serving plate lined with a damp kitchen towel. Repeat with the rest of the papers.
  6. Serve straight away with the Caesar dressing as a dipping sauce.

Pro tip: dip your fingers in water, so your hands are damp when handling the spring roll wrapper, they will stick less

Can you make tofu rolls ahead of time?

A few hours yes, but a day in advance no. The rice paper will harden in the fridge and loose that desirable chewy texture you want. I personally like my fresh rolls best right after they are made, but have found they can keep well for 2-3 hours at room temp. and still remain chewy texture. This especially makes a really fun appetizer! That being said, you can definitely prep all the ingredients in advance and just roll everything in the rice paper when you are ready to eat.
