Ginger Charred Broccoli and Tofu Sesame Spring Rolls

I love spring rolls, but they’re often uninspiring, made with the same flavors, same raw vegetables, and the same proteins. They’re one of my favorite snacks, because they’re a tasty way to pack in a bunch of raw vegetables in a crunchy, portable bite.

Ginger Charred Broccoli and Tofu Sesame Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are easy to make – you pretty much just wet rice paper in a shallow bowl of water, top with whatever ingredients you’d like, and roll! Slice them in half and serve them as appetizers, or have a couple as a light snack – or as part of a meal!

These spring rolls are seasoned with Simply Organic‘s ground Ginger and their Black Sesame Seeds. If you wanted to skip the cooking and charring of the broccoli, you could just chop it up more finely and briefly cook it in a pan with some olive oil and the same seasonings.

By charring the broccoli, you’re adding another level of consistency and flavor, but it does take 20 minutes, so if you don’t have that kind of time, I recommend using finely chopped raw broccoli or well chopped broccoli, cooked for 5 minutes in a skillet.

Spring rolls are also beautiful, aren’t they? I usually just have mine dipped in soy sauce, but I’m obsessed with this tahini sesame dressing – it’s a must make!

And if you want to add a different protein other than tofu, add in some cooked chopped chicken!

Recipe

Ginger Charred Broccoli and Tofu Sesame Rolls

Prep Time30 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time50 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups broccoli florets from 2 stems of broccoli + the broccoli stems spiralized with Blade D
  • sesame oil to drizzle
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon Simply Organic Ginger Root
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 6 rice wrapper sheets
  • 1.5 teaspoons Simply Organic Black Sesame Seeds
  • 4 oz baked tofu cut into 1/8” strips
  • ¼ cup packed mint sliced
  • For the dipping sauce:
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon Simply Organic Ginger Root
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Lay out broccoli florets and stem noodles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and drizzle with sesame oil and season with salt, pepper, and Ginger Root. Bake for 20 minutes, shaking the pan halfway through, or until fork tender and charred (black and deep brown in color.) Remove from oven and chop well.
  • While broccoli cooks, peel, pit, and thinly slice the avocado. Set aside.
  • Prepare the dipping sauce. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Set aside in a serving vessel you’ll be serving alongside the spring rolls.
  • Create an assembly line of the vegetables for the spring rolls (this just helps you keep organized).
  • Fill a shallow dish with warm water. One at a time, dip a rice wrapper sheet into the water for 5 to 10 seconds. Remove and place on a flat surface, like a cutting board or plate.
  • In the middle of one of the rice wrappers, sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon black sesame seeds in a horizontal row formation and lay 4 avocado slices down (they should be very thin), 4 tofu strips, 1 pinch of mint, and 2 tablespoons of the broccoli mixture.
  • Fold the bottom half of the rice paper wrapper over the filling. Holding firmly in place, fold the sides of the wrapper in. Then, pressing firmly down to hold in place, roll the entire wrapper horizontally up from the bottom to the top. Turn the roll so that the seam faces down and the avocado faces up.
  • Continue with the remaining ingredients and rice wrappers to make 6 rolls. Place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate, if not serving immediately.
  • Serve the spring rolls with the dipping sauce, topped with more sesame seeds.

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
