Today, I’m showing you healthy summer rolls with tofu and making homemade spicy peanut dipping sauce and spicy lime chili sauce. This is my favorite summer recipe because it’s so light and delicious.

Ingredients for Summer Rolls

  • 7 ounces Extra Firm Organic Tofu, cut into strips (225 grams)
  • 5 sheets Brown Rice Paper
  • 5 sheets Brown Rice Paper
  • 1 small Carrot, julienned
  • Half an Avocado, cut into strips
  • 1 cup of baby salad leaves
  • Handful of mint and/or cilantro torn into small pieces

For Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Tamari
  • 1 teaspoon Siracha or chili oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Brown Sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Hot Water

Ingredients for Spicy Lime Chili Sauce

  • 3 1⁄2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. sambal oelek (Thai chile paste)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  1. To prepare your Summer Rolls, soften a piece of Rice Paper in warm to hot water until softened.
  2. 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.
  3. Once all your rolls are prepared, prepare Spicy Peanut or Chili Lime Dipping Sauce by combining all ingredients in a bowl and whisking till smooth.
  4. 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.
