  • 20 rice paper spring roll wrappers (available in most Asian supermarkets or sometimes the Asian aisles in a normal supermarket)
  • 280 g pressed tofu (can sub for chicken/prawns)
  • 75 g red pepper (you can use any selection of veg you like)
  • 75 g cucumber
  • 75 g shredded lettuce
  • 75 g avocado
  • 75 g shredded carrots
  • 1 handful chopped coriander (or herbs of choice)
  • Dipping sauce of choice
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 kcal spray


  • Start with cooking your tofu (protein source) by heating a pan on a medium heat.
  • Cut your tofu into bite sized pieces and season well with salt and pepper.
  • Spray the pan with 1kcal spray and add the tofu to the pan.
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes until crispy (turning from time to time).
  • Remove the tofu from the pan and leave aside.
  • Prep your veg - thinly slice the cucumber, avocado and red pepper. You can use any veg you like.
  • To assemble the summer rolls, place a sheet of rice paper in a bowl of luke warm water until just softened (about 45 seconds).
  • Remove the sheet carefully from water, shake off the excess water and place it on plate.
  • Pat it dry with kitchen paper.
  • Add another sheet to the water to soften while prepping this roll.
  • Place some of the vegetable filling horizontally in centre of the sheet, add some coriander and top with a few pieces of tofu. (Be careful of overfilling them as it is harder to roll).
  • Fold the corner facing you up over the filling and roll the sheet tightly to enclose the filling.
  • Place your roll on a plate and repeat the process with the remaining sheets.
  • When you have a few made, you will have a good flow with how to make them. The first few are always a bit messy!
  • Serve with your dipping sauce of choice - soy, sriracha, teriyaki, sweet chili or satay sauce.
  • These will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days in an airtight container. They are a great meal prep option.
