Makes about 12 Rolls


  • 400 g firm tofu, sliced into 1 cm slices
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 rice paper wrappers
  • ½  iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced into small batons
  • 2 carrots, sliced into small batons
  • 2 cucumber sliced into small batons
  • 50 g vermicelli rice noodles cooked according to package instructions
  • Sauce to serve, e.g. peanut, hoisin or sweet chilli sauce


  1. Heat oil in pan and cook tofu on medium heat for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.
  2. Dampen a clean tea towel and put on a clean surface. Prepare rice wrappers, one at a time, according to instructions on the packet. Put re-hydrated rice wrapper on the damp towel.
  3. Place a small handful of lettuce, 2 sticks of carrot, capsicum, and cucumber and a small handful of noodles in the middle of the wrapper. Top with a slice of tofu. The rice paper is very delicate, so don’t overfill.
  4. Fold sides of wrapper in, and roll tightly.
  5. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
