- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
- 8 oz. flavored, baked tofu, shredded
- 1 cup sunflower greens or bean sprouts
- 1/2 cup shredded fresh basil leaves
- 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into short thin strips

- 1 tablespoon MAGGI Seasoning Sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 12 (8-inch) round dried rice paper wrappers
- Soy and Chili Dipping Sauce (recipe follows)
HEAT canola oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add tofu; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes. Turn off heat. Stir in sunflower greens, basil, bell pepper, sweet chili sauce, seasoning sauce and sesame oil.
SOAK one sheet of rice paper wrapper in warm water for about 1 minute or until soft. Transfer wrapper to a dry cutting board.
ARRANGE 2 tablespoons filling in an even horizontal mound just below the center of the wrapper. Tightly roll up the rice paper to form a tight cylinder, folding in the sides about halfway, as you would to form an egg roll or a blintz. Repeat procedure with remaining wrappers and filling. Cut each spring roll in half on the diagonal. Serve with Soy and Chili Dipping Sauce.
FOR SOY AND CHILI DIPPING SAUCE:
COMBINE 1/4 cup MAGGI TASTE OF ASIA Cooking Soy Sauce, 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion, 1 tablespoon MAGGI TASTE OF ASIA Sweet Chili Sauce and 1 teaspoon sesame oil in small bowl.
Review This Recipe
Flavor is divine! Such a nice treat on a hot summer day. Don't recommend the dipping sauce outlined in the recipe. WAY TOO salty.
Easy Chinese Spring Rolls
My young daughter made this recipe for a school assignment, she made a couple of small changes with the ingredients, but kept to the same measurements. They were fun to make however she wasn't keen on the taste, but I love them, and I have made them twice since.
