Summer Rolls with Peaches + Spicy Green Tofu + a Peanut / Coconut Dipping Sauce

Pumpkins haven’t replaced peaches at the farmer’s market just yet so I’m gonna keep steppin’ with summer. Cool? Ok! With that said I think these little rolls would make the perfect back-to-school lunch – super portable, tasty fuel on the go, kinda like a go-gurt but waaaay better. I discovered a new item at Trader Joe’s last week, an amazing green dragon hot sauce – pretty much an instant obsession for me. The ingredients are very similar to this delicious green sauce I made a while back so if you don’t have a TJ’s near you mix up a batch this good stuff. It’s worth the fuss, I promise. I marinated the tofu in this sauce, plus added coconut milk, garlic, ginger and a little lime juice. It’s hard to imagine eating tofu any other way right now, so good. Once the ingredients are all prepped the rolling is always surprisingly quick and easy. I took this whole batch to work with me and munched on them for a few days. They’re one of my favorite packed lunches for sure.

Ingredients for the Spicy Green Tofu 

1 block of firm tofu

1/4 cup of coconut milk

4 tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce (or make this funky green one!)

2 tablespoons of tamari

juice of half a lime

an inch of fresh ginger, minced

1 large garlic clove, minced

 

Directions

Drain and dry the tofu well. I wrapped mine in a clean kitchen towel overnight to get it really dried out. Slice into strips as shown. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together. Let the tofu soak this up as you prep the veggies (about 30 minutes). Place tofu strips (and additional soaking marinade juices) in a hot pan. The juices will begin to evaporate and the tofu will start to brown slightly and become super fragrant. Remove from pan, place in a bowl and cover with another generous helping of spicy green sauce (optional but recommend).

1 peach, sliced

Soak rice papers in filtered water until flexible and noodle-like. Roll as shown above. Easy!

    These are gorgeous Grace! I was totally at the market yesterday and there were local peaches next to a bin of the first batch of squash for fall – I was like HELLO can I always live in this in between period where I can have both?! Yes please. Haha. Happy late summer munches girl! xo

    These look like the perfect snack, lunch, or dinner. I’m in! And I am in complete agreement about peaches over pumpkin. Pumpkin will have its day in the sun, let’s let the peach reign while we still have em’…just saying. I’m surprised that they stayed fresh for a few days. I’ve always assumed once wrapped I had to eat them quickly…good to know I can tuck these away for later enjoyment.
    P.S. nice to “meet” you…I first learned of your blog (beautiful, by the way) during the #drinkthesummer event and uhhh it’s taken me a while to finally get here. Better late than never 🙂
