Whenever I bring these refreshing spring rolls to a party, I am inevitably the most popular girl there. People ooh and ahh over this complex-tasting and fancy-looking appetizer. Little do they know that it actually took me 20 minutes to pull together and cost me less than $10.

I generally buy my ingredients for this dish from Trader Joe’s, since their organic broccoli slaw is so good (and features plenty of fresh carrots), and their sweet chili sauce is so inexpensive. They don’t have the spring roll wrappers though, so head to your local whole foods store or Asian specialty market for that one.

One more thing—when you are first learning to make these, I highly suggest buying extra ingredients and practicing on a batch before you make the ones you are going to serve guests. The delicate spring roll wrappers can break easily and assembling them can be somewhat difficult at first. But don’t worry—even broken spring rolls are delicious!

Ingredients

  • 10 8" Vietnamese rice paper spring roll wrappers $1.50
  • 2 cups store-bought broccoli slaw $1.50
  • 4 oz. extra firm tofu, cut into 2" strips $1.50
  • 1/2 white onion, cut into thin strips $0.50
  • 20 large basil leaves (use sweet Thai basil if you can find it) $2
  • 1/8 cup Asian sweet chili sauce (I like the kind from Trader Joe's) $2
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil Pantry

Directions

  1. Heat the vegetable oil over high heat in a small frying pan. Fry onions for 3-4 minutes on each side or until crispy. Drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Gently wet a spring roll wrapper under a faucet or in a bowl of water. Remove carefully and blot lightly on a dish towel. Lay on a clean, flat, dry surface and allow to soften--about 1 minute.
  3. As the wrapper softens, arrange the ingredients in the center in the following order: 2 basil leaves topped with a small handful of broccoli slaw, topped with 1-2 strips of tofu, topped with 2-3 strips of onion, and a drizzle of sweet chili sauce.
  4. Roll up the wrappers _very_ gently, tucking in the ends, being careful not to break the wrapper. Don't worry--this takes some practice.
  5. Serve the rolls cut on the bias with more sweet chili sauce for dipping or peanut sauce. Makes 10 whole rolls.

Just a comment on the ingredient listed above. You were probably lucky with Trader Joe’s broccoli slaw. I bought it before – a few times – and always found it very similar to the shredded stringy plywood, except carrots certainly. Maybe “your” Trader Joe’s has better supplier who’s peeling the broccoli stalks before shredding…(;’-)))

I’ve never had meat, since I was raised vegan, and that is by all accounts significantly even more a quarrelsome fact than simply my own meticulous vegetarianism. persons assume there’s some kind of odd instructive experience I’m passing up a great chance for by not eating a creature, but rather I say, bring on the tofu!

Yes i remembered to about Baked Rice Paper Rolls with Sweet Chili Tofu These baked rice paper rolls are hearty, flavourful , slightly crispy and perfectly sweet and spicy. A great gluten-free and vegan alternative to traditional spring rolls. One of the reasons I love taking part in The Marinate recipe competition is that it forces me to step out of my comfort zone and try new things in the kitchen. I would never have thought to make these baked rice paper rolls if it wasn’t for this week’s ingredients.
I made rice paper rolls during the last competition but those were pretty basic and filled with mostly fruit. This time around, our ingredients were rice paper, rice noodles and black and white rice. With that much rice in one recipe I knew I needed to up the flavours and textures a bit so the spring rolls wouldn’t turn out gummy and bland.
