Ingredients
  • 1 package tapioca wrappers you can find these in any asian grocery. They are sold dry, as a stack of flat disks.
  • 1 14 oz package firm or extra firm tofu
  • 1 bunch basil leaves (chopped or roughly torn)
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 package matchstick carrots
  • 1 package bean sprouts
  • 1 package cellophane noodles also known as bean thread or glass noodles
dipping sauce
  • 3/4 cup sun butter or soy nut butter
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 4 tsp soy sauce or Bragg's
  • 1 tsp sugar optional
Servings: rolls

Instructions
  1. Organize filling ingredients around your work space (something like a large cutting board is good). Take one tapioca wrapper, quickly dip it in a bowl of warm water. (Do not soak it--a quick dip is all you need, the wrapper will soften quickly as you work.) Lay the wrapper flat, place a small handful of noodles in an oblong shape, then add other ingredients to your personal preference.
  2. Fold over left and right sides, then roll up. If you make sure 'pointier' ingredients are surrounded by softer ones, there is less chance of the wrapper tearing.
  3. Roll quickly, and tightly, like you are making a burrito. If you make a mistake and the wrapper tears, it won't hurt to use an extra wrapper around the outside.
  4. After each roll is assembled and wrapped, place on a tray or plate. If rolls are touching, they may stick together. Serve immediately.

  1. Whisk all ingredients together and let sit while you assemble rolls. This will keep for a couple days in the fridge; you may just need to re-mix if the ingredients have separated.
Recipe Notes

This recipe is super flexible.  You can add or omit whatever herbs or vegetables you like.  You can add chili sauce if your kids don't mind spiciness, or you can mix up a separate 'grown up' batch.
