Vegan RecipesThese vegan recipes for winter spring rolls might initially seem complicated to make, but it is well worth the effort! The different components of these vegan recipes come together pretty quickly, and you can actually prepare the tofu and onion paste ahead of time.

Ingredients

Ginger Onion Paste:

  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 red spring onions, finely sliced (or equiv. red onion / shallots)
  • 3 tablespoons grated, peeled ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 6 tablespoons sunflower oil

Brown Sugar Tofu & Mushrooms:

  • 12 ounces extra firm tofu
  • 3 medium cloves garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 4 teaspoons natural cane sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, brushed clean, sliced 1/4-inch thick

For spring roll assembly:

  • Ginger Onion Paste (above)
  • Brown Sugar Tofu & Mushrooms (above)
  • crisp, crunchy lettuce (baby gems / romaine)
  • 1 small bunch fresh cilantro or other herbs, well washed / dried

~1 dozen rice paper wrappers

With these vegan recipes, the ginger onion paste should be prepared. The ingredients should be sautéed together until tender, and then the mixture set aside to cool. Next, focus upon the tofu and mushrooms. The garlic, salt, and sugar should be pounded into a paste. The tofu should be prepared according to package instructions. The mushrooms should be lightly sautéed in the same skillet as the tofu. To assemble the spring rolls, dip the rice paper in hot water for a few seconds. Then add lettuce leaf, tofu, a few mushrooms, and cilantro. Then, tuck and roll.
