Crispy tofu rice paper rolls with sweet satay dip

Serves: 1



  • 2 cup fresh baby spinach
  • ½ red capsicum, thinly sliced
  • ½ carrot, thinly sliced
  • ½ Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh coriander leaves
  • 1 cup red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 6 sheets Vietnamese rice paper

Crispy tofu

  • 150g tofu, sliced lengthways into small rectangles
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce or tamari (if gluten free)
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Sweet satay sauce

  • 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce or tamari (if gluten free)
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • Hot water to thin                                                             


  1. Heat a large fry pan with oil over medium heat. Add in tofu strips and cook for 5-10 minutes, rotating until completely browned.
  2. In the last 1-2 minutes, reduce heat on frying pan and add soy sauce. Allow soy sauce to soak through tofu. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare dipping sauce by whisking together peanut butter, soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce until smooth. Add hot water until mixture reaches desired consistency.
  4. Prepare a large bowl of lukewarm water to soften rice paper in.
  5. One at a time, submerge rice paper into water for about 5-10 seconds until soft
  6. Place a small bed of cabbage, coriander and spinach leaves in the middle of the rice paper. Top with small amounts of every other ingredient; carrot, cucumber, tofu, capsicum and avocado.
  7. Roll rice paper roll up (bottom up, sides in and roll to close)

Serve with sweet satay sauce.
