How to make teriyaki tofu

To start making these teriyaki tofu spring rolls, begin by draining the water out of the tofu. Press on it firmly with paper towels, or use a tofu press if you have one. Then cut the tofu into 20 slices.

While the tofu is draining, make the teriyaki marinade. Whisk together the teriyaki sauce, cornstarch, vinegar, garlic and sesame oil. Add the tofu slices to the bowl and toss to combine. Marinate them for 15 minutes, then place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes.

How to assemble teriyaki tofu spring rolls

Since we’re all spending more time at home right now, these tofu spring rolls can be a fun and therapeutic cooking activity to pass some time or do with kids! Sometimes it takes a couple of practice rolls to get the rolling technique down, but stick with it!

Here are my tips:

Add some warm water to a skillet or shallow dish and have a separate damp plate ready. Dip each spring roll wrapper in the water for 15 seconds to soften them, then transfer to the damp plate and spread out the edges.

Have all your ingredients chopped and ready nearby. Place 2 slices of tofu along with some lettuce, carrot, cucumber, cabbage and a few mint leaves in the center of the wrap. Tuck in the edges, fold one side over tightly, and continue to roll, kind of like a burrito! When you’re done rolling, make sure to place it seam side down on a plate.

Vegan spring roll variations

The nice thing about these teriyaki spring rolls is that you can customize the filling based on what you have on hand.

Tempeh or mushrooms work great in place of the tofu, and different fruits and vegetables such as bell pepper, avocado, mango and baby spinach will work for the filling, too.

If you don’t have fresh mint, cilantro or scallions are other herb options you could try.
