  6. To prepare the veggies peel and cut carrots into 1/4 inch matchsticks as well as cucumbers and cooled tofu.
  7. To assemble rolls soak rice paper in warm water for a few minutes until pliable, stack a few carrot sticks, 2 pieces of tofu, a stick or two of cucumber, cilantro, and greens.
  8. Roll into a tight burrito shape bringing edges in first and then tucking under ends.
  9. Do the same remaining rolls and let rest a few minutes before serving.
  10. Serve with the peanut dipping sauce on the side and enjoy!

Notes

Not only is this dish absolutely delicious, but it is extremely versatile and can be made using up whatever you have in the refrigerator. Bell peppers make a great addition as well as sprouts, arugula, avocado, noodles, basil, and even tempeh. The sauce is also quite adaptable and can be made with almond butter, braggs liquid aminos, lime, fresh garlic and ground ginger without sacrificing flavor. These rolls also stay well overnight as long as they are sealed tightly in tupperware and are perfect to pack in your lunch the next day. Just don't forget the peanut sauce!
