Ingredients

  • ½ block semi-firm tofu
  • 1 package rice noodles
  • 1 peach, pitted and sliced into 16 thin slices
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint, whole leaves removed from stem
  • 3 strawberries, sliced into 24 thin slices
  • 5 sheets nori
  • ½ cup honey
  • ¾ cup sweet chili sauce, divided

Instructions

  • Press tofu to remove water; marinate 30 minutes in ½ cup sweet chili sauce. Slice into strips.
  • In a medium sauce pan, bring 4 cups water to boil. Add rice noodles and oil, cook until al dente, 3–5 minutes; drain. 
  • To prepare nori, soak a dry dish towel in water and wring out until damp.  Place one sheet of nori on towel, shiny side down; leave on 1 minute, until nori is pliable.
  • Working one roll at a time, across the center of each sheet, layer 2 peach slices, 3 strawberries slices, a few mint leaves and a handful of rice noodles; drizzle ½ tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of chili sauce on top. Roll tightly from the bottom, and place seam-side down on presentation platter. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • Serve with remaining chili sauce as a dip.
