Recipe

One of the very first things I learned when I started trying to lose weight was the importance of having healthy snacks and quick lunches around so I wouldn’t be tempted to grab something high in calories when suddenly mid afternoon I felt like I could eat my arm. So instead of leaving things to chance, I started stocking my fridge with healthy options like these veggie spring rolls. Packed with vegetables and tofu they make the perfect snack or lunch and can be eaten on the go. Not a fan of tofu? Just use ground chicken, ground turkey, shrimp, or any mild fish.

Directions

  1. Whisk together the dipping sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. Squeeze the tofu between paper towels to release extra water. Cut into 12 rectangles, about 2 inches by a quarter inch.
  3. Fill a shallow bowl with hot, but not boiling, water. Submerge 1 spring roll wrapper until softened.
  4. Asemble spring rolls. Lay one wrapper flat and place two mint leaves lengthwise in center. Layer on three pieces of tofu, several carrot and cucumber slices, a sprinkling of cilantro and basil.
  5. Top with a lettuce leaf.
  6. Fold the long edge of the wrapper over ingredients. Then fold in ends and continue rolling wrapper lengthwise. Place seam side down on a plate. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
