Even though spring rolls are a Vietnamese dish, it believed to have Chinese origins. They may be a modified version of Chinese egg rolls. However, unlike Chinese egg rolls, which are usually fried, these spring rolls won't leave you feeling bloated after eating them. Tofu Spring Rolls are fresh, filling, and bursting with flavor. Best of all, they come with a flavorful salty, sweet, and sour dipping sauce.

Fried Tofu
Hoisin Dipping Sauce
Spring Rolls


Fried Tofu
Fold 3 paper towels in half. Place tofu onto paper towels.
Fold three more paper towels in half and place them on the tofu. 
Place a heavy bowl or cutting board on top of the tofu and let it sit for 30 minutes.  
Cut the tofu into 1/2-inch strips.
Whisk soy sauce, plum sauce, chili paste, and maple syrup in a small bowl.
In a non-stick skillet, add olive oil. Place over medium-high heat.
Add tofu. Space the tofu out in the frying pan to make it easier to flip them over. Cook tofu for 1-2 minutes, then flips and cook for another 1-2 minutes. 
Add the soy sauce marinade and cook for 1-2 minutes. Remove the tofu from the skillet and set it aside. 
Hoisin Dipping Sauce
Whisk hoisin sauce, soy sauce, water, lime juice, and brown sugar in a small bowl
To Assemble
Fill a small dish with lukewarm water. Then, in batches, carefully dip a rice paper sheet into the water and let it sit for 30 seconds per side until it is soft and pliable. 
Remove the rice paper from the water and allow the excess water to drain from the rice paper sheet. 
Spray a plate lightly with non-stick spray. Place the rice paper sheet onto the prepared plate. 
Add 2-3 fried tofu pieces and top with bean sprouts, carrots, and watercress. 
Roll it into a burrito and place the spring roll onto a serving dish. Repeat until you have 10-12 spring rolls. 
Pour the hoisin dipping sauce into a small dish and serve with spring tofu rolls.
