Crispy Tofu Spring Rolls



Author Notes: I’ve made spring rolls many times before, mostly with shrimp, but this time I decided to throw in a crunchy, vegan addition: golden pan-fried tofu. So picture it: soft noodle-like rice paper, crunchy raw veggies, crispy tofu, and a chili soy sauce. Yes, please.The Satisfied Craver
