1 Tbsp (15 ml) finely chopped fresh ginger

1 Tbsp (15 ml) sunflower oil

250 g firm tofu, drained and cut into 2 cm strips

250 g shiitake mushrooms, sliced

2 Tbsp (30 ml) soy sauce

1 Tbsp (15 ml) mirin

8 rice paper wraps

2 carrots, peeled and sliced into thin strips

1 cucumber, seeded and sliced into thin strips

15 g 1 handful coriander

15 g 1 handful mint

sweet chilli sauce to serve

Heat a pan over medium heat and gently fry the ginger in the oil for a few seconds. Add the tofu and mushrooms and fry until golden. Add the soy sauce and mirin and allow to reduce. Remove the tofu and mushrooms from pan and keep to one side until cool. Remove the pan from the heat and allow vegetable mixture to cool.

Place 1 rice paper wrap in a bowl of warm water for about 15 seconds to soften. Once soft, remove from the water, place on a clean surface and pat dry using paper towels.

To Assemble

Place a few strips of carrot, cucumber and some coriander and mint in the middle of the wrap and top with a little of the tofu mixture. Fold in the ends and roll up firmly to enclose the filling. Repeat with the remaining wraps.

Serve with a sweet chilli dipping sauce.
