I love fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls. The fresh veggies, mint, cilantro, peanut sauce or sweet and spicy dipping sauce. Everything just works so well together. When I want some refreshing crunchy veggie fresh rolls with the crunch, lettuce, carrots, cucumbers, mint, cilantro, tofu, noodles and a fabulous dipping sauce but don’t want to roll things up, I make it into a deconstructed Summer Roll Bowl!
Prep the veggies and the noodles, marinate and bake the tofu, meanwhile blend up the Peanut sauce that is sweetened with dates. No refined Sugar or Oil in this Bowl! Assemble into bowl, rolls, wrap or however you like and serve.
Crunchy, Refreshing, Easy, and Perfect! To make the sauce without nuts, use Sunbutter.
