I have had so many different variations of summer rolls! But, I have to say this version is my current favourite. I was inspired to make these after enjoying a similar dish at a plant-based restaurant in New York called Beyond Sushi. I love how hearty and satisfying these summer rolls are. You could enjoy 2 or 3 for a filling and delicious lunch.

And not only are summer rolls delicious and fun to eat, they’re equally fun to make as you feel like a sushi chef creating individual rolls with all of your fillings prepped in front of you.

Nutty Noodle Summer Rolls

Easy Summer Rolls made in 30-minutes with fresh veggies, marinated grilled tofu and a savoury almond butter sauce.These rolls are flavourful, fresh and perfect for Summer!
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 30 mins

Ingredients:

  • 1 14 oz block of extra firm tofu
  • 1 roll of soba noodles
  • 1 small head of butter lettuce
  • 1 cup of carrots julienned
  • 1 ripe avocado sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 8 rice paper wraps
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

Tofu Marinade

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 lemon juiced
  • 1 tsp garlic chilli paste
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper

Noodles

  • 1 tsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • 1/4 lemon juiced
  • pinch of sesame seeds

Almond Butter Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Almond butter
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 lemon juiced
  • 1 tbsp water

Instructions:

  • Start by cutting tofu into small rectangles about 1cm thick. For the marinade, use a deep container and whisk together all of the ingredients. Submerge tofu, cover and refrigerate for 10 min.
  • Meanwhile, start cooking the soba noodles in boiling hot water for about 5-8 minutes (read instructions on package). Drain, rinse with cold water and toss in avocado oil, sesame oil, sesame seeds and green onion and set aside.
  • Heat a large grill skillet over medium heat with a drizzle of avocado oil and cook for about 5-8 min making sure to flip in between to brown on all sides then remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Next, prep veggies and prepare almond butter sauce by adding all sauce ingredients to a small mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.
  • To assemble summer rolls, pour hot water into a shallow dish and immerse the rice paper for about 5-10 seconds to soften. Transfer to a damp cutting board or surface and gently spread out edges to lay flat.
  • In the middle of the rice paper wrap start by layering in lettuce, cilantro, cooked tofu, carrot, soba noodles, avocado, crushed cashews, sesame seeds and a drizzle of the almond butter sauce.
  • Gently fold over once, tuck in edges, and continue rolling until seam is sealed. Watch the video for the full demo!
  • Repeat until you've used up all your fillings. I made around 8-10 rolls.
  • Serve with a side of the almond butter sauce and and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

Notes

You can store any leftovers by wrapping them individually in plastic wrap and refrigerating for 2-3 days.

  1. Oh wow, spring rolls are my FAVORITE appetizer! I definitely will be enjoying lots of those when I come to Vietnam on Wednesday! The avocado and sesame seeds just complement the rolls perfectly!
