These Spring Rolls with Marinated Tofu are one of my family favorite food. They are all about texture. Inside you have rice noodles, crisp vegetables and usually it come with some type of meat or seafood, but here I decided to use tofu. So many textures, flavors and colors wrapped in a small package. They are super good!
1 extra firm tofu block
1 packet vermicelli
16 rice sheets
1 cup of grated carrots
2 bells peppers in thin strips
1 mango in thin strips
1 cup fresh cilantro
3 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp tamari sauce
Others garnish options
Marinate the tofu for 1 hour in the tamari sauce. In a bowl, cover the vermicelli in boiling water and let stand for 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In a bowl of hot water, soak the rice leaves one at a time for 15 to 20 seconds. Remove them from the water, drain them well and place them on a work surface.
Place the rice paper on the work surface. Place 2 to 3 mint leaves, 1 tablespoon of carrots, 1 strip of mango, 2 strips of peppers, ¼ cup of vermicelli and finally 1 strip of tofu.
Fold the sides towards the center. Roll firmly to trap the filling.
Cover the rollers with a damp cloth and proceed with the rest of the ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Cut the rolls in half diagonally.
