Keep things cool and use all of your in-season veggies with these quick and refreshing summer rolls.



For the Crispy Tofu:

  • 8 ounces extra firm tofu
  • Drizzle of olive oil

For the Summer Rolls:

  • 12 sheets rice paper
  • Pan fried tofu, from above
  • 1 head of lettuce
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup purple cabbage, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup mint leaves

For the Peanut Sauce:

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅓ cup water


  1. For the tofu: Drain the tofu and cut into 1/4″ strips. Put a large skillet over medium heat and coat the bottom with oil. It is important to heat the oil before coating the tofu. When the oil is hot, place the tofu in the pan, using a spatula to flip every minute or so to ensure both sides become crispy and cook evenly. Cook the tofu for about 5-7 minutes or until slightly golden. Remove the tofu from the pan and place on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  2. For the summer rolls: Fill a pie dish or a rimmed plate with warm water. Soak the rice paper, one sheet at a time, in the warm water until softened and ready to roll (about 15-30 seconds should do the trick).
  3. Prep your vegetables, cutting them into thin strips, no longer than 3 inches.
  4. Lay the rice paper on a cutting board or clean counter, and add your vegetables and tofu until the center of the rice paper is full.
  5. To wrap your summer rolls, start by folding the bottom up and over the filling away from you. Gently tuck and roll the ingredients towards you like a burrito. Then, fold the left and ride sides inwards towards each other and roll the entire summer roll away from you until it’s sealed.
  6. For the peanut sauce: Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well combined and the sauce is smooth.
  7. Enjoy immediately, or store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to three days.
