Cucumber Tofu Rolls

This is a quick and easy side you can put together and eat right away or tuck them away for a day or two in the fridge.  I made a quick soy sauce & vinegar dip which was great, but what would really make this amazing would be the (Sorta) Spicy Peanut Sauce.  I also used a cheese slicer to cut the vegetables (I’m not sure why that was in my kitchen).  You could also use a mandolin slicer or just go for it with a knife.

The dip was:

  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Rice Vinegar
