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.

I love this recipe. To make it even easier, I sometimes get the prebaked tofu from the store and use that. It means I can make this for those hot days when I don’t want to have to turn the oven on but still want something filling for dinner.

good idea!!! thank you
OMG! I’ve made this four times already this month! I can’t get enough of the date sauce or chilly ginger sauce! And I’m making it again for a picnic today.
Yet another incredible recipe. You’re a genius, seriously- beautiful food, thank you!
I’m so excited I get to make this tonight… Great recipe and beautiful photography – showing the colourful beauty of vegan food! yaaaas!
Loved this! I love summer rolls at Vietnamese restaurants but never think to attempt one at home…and can be intimidated by the wrapper. This had all the taste and crunch, with a great peanut sauce (really the best part of summer rolls)—and I could use lots of it, unlike the stingy portions at restaurants. My only tweak was adding some water to the sauce to thin it down just a drop for better spreading/coverage. And also adding some bean sprouts since I had some broccoli sprouts I wanted to use up. Thanks so much!
awesome! yes some sprouts will be perfect! I know right, all the work to roll them up and i am not great at the rolling either, so as well just put everything in a fork!
It looks so fresh and yummy, need your suggestion. Can we add morel mushrooms to the recipe?
Thank you for this! I cannot wrap those rice paper wraps to save my life! Beautiful dish Richa. 🙂

Vietnamese-style spring rolls with lots of fresh vegetables and tofu are my favorite! Peanut sauce is amazing as well–I love that yours is sweetened with dates, but is there a good alternative to dates for the sauce? I currently don’t have dates on hand and I still would like to make the sauce!
2 to 3 tsp sugar
Sounds delish and what a good idea! Definitely want to try this one. 😊
LOVE your recipes Richa! For some reason do not like the taste of dates, is there any substitute you could recommend and what the amount would be. Can’t wait to try this!
try 2 tsp sugar or maple syrup and add more if needed.
Thank you so much!!
This sounds just like me! I start making cabbage rolls or enchiladas and end up making a bowl of the ingredients 😉
I know right 🙂 esp when the bowl tastes the same and prob easier to eat with a fork as well and get as much of the dipping sauce!
