Fresh Spring Rolls

I made these and brought them to the dinner party we were invited to last night. They were a huge hit.

You can add whatever you want to them, but here is what I did:

In a bowl, mix:
1/2 bag of coleslaw mix
1/2 bag of broccoli slaw
1/2 bunch green onions, diced
4 T. chopped cilantro
2-3 T. chopped basil
Mix together and drizzle over the mixture: sesame seed oil, seasoned rice vinegar, braggs liquid aminos (or reduced sodium soy sauce)

On a large cutting board, chop like matchstick, whatever veggies you want. We did:
carrots (3 large)
cucumber (one medium size)
zucchini (1/2 large)
avocados (3 small)

Slice firm tofu into 1/2 inch slices and lightly fry in a pan on each side until it starts to get brown. I sprayed Braggs liquid Aminos on it (can buy at any health food store)
Once cool , cut in thin strips

I also added rice sticks for the kids. They are like rice noodles that you get at an Asian market. You let them soak in cold water for 20 minutes and then flash boil and drain..The kids love them

You are now ready to make your rolls.

Get a pan of warm water and put in one rice paper (they are circles that you can buy at most stores or Asian markets). Once soft, take out of the water and put on your counter

Add a small spoonful of your filling and then add:
1 small strip of tofu
1 slice of each of your matchstick veggies
a few rice stick noodles

Roll up. Fold bottom part of the circle up, and then bring in each side and then finish rolling up.

Serve with Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce. Mine is from Original Fast Foods and it is the dressing for my Oriental Salad, which you can find here
