Avocado-Mango Spring Rolls

When the weather starts heating up, we like to serve fresh spring rolls. They're quick, easy and the only cooking required is water heated in a tea kettle.

Spring rolls aren't an exact science. Add herbs, substitute vegetables or fruits, make them the way you want to eat them. I sometimes add chopped peanuts for a nice crunch.

If you've never worked with rice paper, it may seem a bit tricky at first. Try and try again! Ugly spring rolls still taste delicious.

Ingredients
  

  • 6 ounces of rice noodles
  • 14-16 ounces of firm tofu drained
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 English cucumber
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • handful of basil
  • handful of cilantro
  • 6 ounces of rice paper spring roll wrappers

Instructions
 

  • Cook rice noodles according to package OR place in dish, pour boiling water to cover and allow to soften for 15 minutes. Drain thoroughly.
  • In the meantime, cut tofu, mango, cucumber and avocado into thin slices.
  • Chop herbs.
  • Fill a wide, shallow dish with warm water to soak rice wrappers in.
  • Assemble rolls one at a time. Start by soaking rice wrapper in warm water until softened (this will only take a few seconds.) Place a slice or two of tofu, mango, cucumber and avocado in middle of wrapper, about ⅓ of the way from the bottom. Top with a small handful of rice noodles. Sprinkle with a large pinch of basil and cilantro. Roll the spring roll as you would a burrito.
  • Serve with your favorite sauce. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Ingredient prep. It’s important to prep all the ingredients in advance of starting to roll.
  • Thin, small pieces. The spring rolls will be easier to roll if all the ingredients are cut into small pieces.
  • Don’t overfill. If you put too many ingredients inside they will be more difficult to roll and may even burst apart.
  • Work with the rice paper one at a time. The paper is delicate and working slowly is the best approach.
  • Be patient. Rice paper can be a little tricky at the start but with a little practice, it gets easier.
  • Store leftovers. These avocado spring rolls are best served immediately. If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container covered with a damp paper towel for up to three days. The rice paper may become more brittle or soggy the longer they sit.
