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

Ingredients

  • 2 Cucumbers
  • 1 Carrot
  • 1/2 Block of Tofu
  • 1 Teaspoon Oil
  • Garlic Powder to taste
  • Toothpicks

Method

Step 1

Drain, pat dry, and cut the tofu into small, thin rectangles. Slice the carrots into the same shape. Finally, slice the cucumber into long strips.

Step 2

Add the oil, tofu, and garlic powder to a frying pan and saute until both sides are golden brown.

Step 3

Stack a few pieces of tofu, sandwiched between two carrot pieces, and roll it up in a slice of cucumber. Use a toothpick to pin the roll together.

Step 4

Jake switched to a plant based diet in 1996 and quickly realized he had no idea how to cook. All these years later and he's still trying to figure it out...
