Recipe:


Serves: 4 (about 16 spring rolls)


Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

 

Ingredients:


- 1 cup shredded carrots

- 1 cup beansprouts

- 1/2 cup sweetcorn

- 1/2 cup crumbled tofu

- 16 vegan spring roll wrappers

- 3 tablespoons of soy sauce

For the sweet chilli sauce:

- 1/2 cup white sugar

- 1/4 cup water

Method:


1. In a large pan over medium heat, stir-fry the carrots, beansprouts, sweetcorn, and crumbled tofu with the soy sauce until they're tender. Set aside to cool.


2. To assemble the spring rolls, place a spoonful of the cooled vegetable and tofu mixture onto each spring roll wrapper. Tightly roll up the wrapper, tucking in the sides as you go.
