Vegan Vietnamese Tofu Spring Rolls - platingpixels.comBesides Mexican food, sushi and anything related to this may be a favorite cuisine of fine. For whatever reasons I rarely make it at home. Maybe it’s the lack of equipment for making California-style rolls, or I need to find a reliable source of quality raw seafood. To make rolls a bit easier, I’m sharing these Vegan Vietnamese Tofu Spring Rolls with dipping sauce. It’s like sushi rolls, but with a few tweaks to make it more accessible.

Vegan Vietnamese Tofu Spring Rolls - platingpixels.comSpring rolls are easy to make at home and require no special tools, just rice spring roll sheets. Simply soak in water to make it pliable, then wrap anything you want in them. Another obvious difference is the use of firm tofu instead of seafood or chicken in these spring rolls. Tofu can be used for much more than Asian stir-frys, soups or bowls.

For these Vegan Vietnamese Tofu Spring Rolls, I used Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Organic Firm by Morinaga Nutritional Foods, Inc., one of the highest-qualities of silken tofu on the market. Silken tofu generally has a smoother and creamier texture, with a slightly higher water content than dense, spongy tub tofu. For information on Morinaga Nutritional Foods, Inc., visit morinu.com, or go to the store locator to find your nearest Silken Tofu retailer.

It has a longer shelf life without the need for refrigeration or preservatives. The packaging locks out light, oxygen and micro-organisms which lead to spoilage and allow for a long shelf life without the use of preservatives. Some of their products are certified organic, while all of them are Kosher, non-GMO, and gluten-free. For me, organic is a big plus as it can sometimes be difficult to find organic tofu.

The Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Organic Firm is perfect for these Vegan Vietnamese Tofu Spring Rolls. It holds up well when browning, giving it extra flavor and texture. Then simply wrap in a spring roll sheet with sliced cucumber, bell pepper and basil. A simple homemade dipping sauce rounds out this wholesome, balanced meal.
