Fresh Vegan Spring Rolls with Ginger-Almond Sauce

You have to try these simple and tasty spring rolls... preparing and assembling them are quick and fun to make by yourself or with others! Try mixing your favorite vegetables for the perfect flavor combinations.

 

With only a few ingredients, the crisp veggies add nutrients and vibrant color to these rolls, while the tofu boosts them into a hardy and filling treat. 

 

The Ginger-Almond sauce gives these spring rolls the perfect balance of sweet, salty, and spicy that pairs perfectly with the cooling spring roll for a well-rounded bite. 

 

Are these spring rolls gluten-free? 

 

Yes! The vegetables, tofu, and spring roll papers all make this recipe refreshing and gluten-free. 

 

What are spring roll papers made out of?

 

Traditionally, Vietnamese and Thai spring roll papers are made out of a rice flour and water paste. This is stamped onto bamboo mats very thin and dried out. When ready to use, they are soaked in water to make them pliable. Making sure each paper is thin seems like a challenging task. Thankfully, these spring roll papers can be easily found in most grocery stores now! 

 

When dry, spring roll papers are fragile and when wet, they are delicate and easy to tear. When soaking them before use, it is important not to let them sit in the water for too long. Doing so can weaken the structure of the paper and make it hard to roll when assembling. 

 

How should I eat these spring rolls?

 

It is best to eat these rolls the same day you make them. Placing them in the fridge can dry out the spring roll papers and make it hard to eat. No need to heat them up since they are veggie-based. Adding excess heat will also make the paper soggy and unpleasant when eating. 

 

What vegetables do I need?

 

The good thing about this recipe is how versatile and customizable it is. We used carrots, onions, spinach, and bell paper but you can use any you have on hand! Some good options are cabbage, cucumber, lettuce, or avocado. Any vegetable that can be eaten raw would work perfectly in this recipe. 

 

Here are some tasty and refreshing recipes you can pair with your spring rolls!

How to make Fresh Vegan Spring Rolls with Ginger-Almond Sauce

  1. Prepare the vegetables by thinly slicing the onion stocks, bell pepper, red onion, and carrots into matchsticks.
  2. Bring some water up to a boil and cook the rice noodles according to package instructions. Stir every two minutes to avoid clumping. Taste to make sure they are cooked. Depending on your rice noodles, this can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes.
  3. After draining tofu, slice into strips and place on a heated pan with sesame oil. Pan-fry the tofu pieces until golden brown on both sides about 4-5 minutes each side.
  4. Prepare the spring roll papers by placing them into a shallow dish with about an inch of water. Let them sit for about 10-15 seconds, then remove and place on your working surface in a flat layer. Only work with one paper at a time. Do not layer the sheets in the water or on your working area.
  5. Layer the filings with the sliced vegetables first on the bottom ⅓ of the paper in a horizontal log. Then place the tofu over that. Grab the cooked rice noodles and place them on top after removing most of the water. Finish with a few spinach leaves. Make sure the filling does not go past any of the edges of the paper.
  6. When rolling the spring rolls, grab the side closest to you and fold it over the filling. Then fold over the left and right sides. Finally, roll the spring roll away from you.
  7. To make the sauce, mix together the almond butter, coconut aminos, minced garlic and ginger, lemon juice, sesame seeds or tahini, and chili garlic sauce or red pepper flakes. Add water a tablespoon at a time if it is too thick.
  8. Dip the spring rolls into the sauce and enjoy!
