I have a very good recipe for the peanut sauce that goes great with the spring roll. Use it if you like. 5 tbsp of Hoisin Sauce 1/2 C water 2 tbsp peanut/almond butter Combine ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to boil in very low heat, stirr. For thick sauce add 1 tbsp hoisin sauce. For watery sauce add extra water. Enjoy.

I loved this video. I have had such an affinity for these fresh rolls and I like that I can make them at home and I really appreciate the step by step video too! I however, like to put my shrimp halves on the bottom of the roll, followed by my lettuce and then noodles, veggies, herbs, nuts etc then roll up, I find it makes a more restaurant style looking product and the lettuce combined with the spring roll wrapper make it so refreshing for a hot summer day! what wines would you recommend going with this dish?

What is the nutritional information for the Tofu Spring Rolls with the vietnamese peanut sauce? I am looking for a low calorie, low fat, but high in fiber option. I love the tofu spring rolls but need the nutritional info so I can type this into my Weight Watchers account and find out how many points these spring rolls count as in my daily points. Thanks.
