Ingredients
  

For Teriyaki Tofu:

  • 7 ounces Extra Firm Tofu cut into strips (225 grams)
  • 3 tablespoons Tamari
  • 2 teaspoons Sesame Oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Rice Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch

For Rolls:

  • 5 sheets Rice Paper
  • 1/2 Cucumber cut into strips
  • 1 small Carrot Julienned
  • 1/2 Avocado cut into strips
  • 1 cup Mixed Salad Leaves
  • 1 handful Cilantro torn into small pieces

For Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Tamari
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Brown Sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Hot Water

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 175 degrees celsius and line with non-stick baking paper. In a shallow dish, combine all ingredients for Tofu marinade - Tamari, Sesame Oil, Maple Syrup, Garlic , Rice Vinegar and Cornstarch. Whisk to combine.
  • Place Tofu slices in marinade and make sure to cover all sides of the Tofu with the marinade. Leave to sit and soak for 15 minutes or up to an hour if you have time. The longer it sits, the more flavorful the Tofu will be.
  • Once marinated, drain Tofu of excess marinade and place Tofu strips on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-25 minutes, or until Tofu has crisped up.
  • Once your Teriyaki Tofu is ready, remove from oven and leave to one side to cool.
  • To prepare your Summer Rolls, soften a piece of Rice Paper in warm to hot water until softened.
  • Lay a few pieces of Tofu onto the middl of the roll, followed by Cucumber, Carrot, Avocado, Cilantro and Mixed Salad Leaves. Roll, spring roll style and then repeat with remaining sheets of Rice Paper.
  • Once all your rolls are prepared, prepare Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce by combining all ingredients in a bowl and whisking till smooth.
  • Rice Paper Rolls are best served fresh - I don't advice refrigerating them for too long as the Rice Paper can go hard in the fridge.
