Thai Green Curry Spring Rolls

All the fragrant, creamy deliciousness of Thai green curry wrapped up into refreshing green curry spring rolls with a simple Thai-inspired dipping sauce.

Thai Green Curry Spring Rolls

I always used to have this fear of Thai food. Being allergic to peanuts and fish, I wrapped it up in the big bundle of foods to just steer clear of. But then I discovered the wonder that is Thai green curry at a little bistro in my college town, and so began my infatuation with Thai food.

And since I’ll be romping about Vietnam/Cambodia/Thailand in May (!!!!), it’s probably for the best that I start prepping my palate, right?

I’d never experimented with spring rolls before but man, these are a game changer. I’ve been wanting to make some sort of green curry spring rolls for months now, but none of our spotlight ingredients lent themselves well to the idea.

That is until now with our spotlight on limes! We’re using lime juice in this green curry dipping sauce and (if you can find them) kaffir lime leaves, which are a common flavor booster in Southeast Asian cuisine.

INGREDIENTS

Tofu
  • 1 14-oz block extra firm tofu
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 ½ Tbsp green curry paste
  • ½ tsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk
  • If you have it 2 kaffir lime leaves
Everything Else
  • 2 oz thin rice vermicelli 60 g, rice noodles
  • 8 to 10 rice flour spring roll wrappers
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot shredded
  • 1 handful Thai basil can sub sweet basil or mint if you can’t find Thai basil
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1 lime

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Wrap tofu in a clean towel. Set a heavy pan on top to press excess moisture out. Let sit for 15 minutes while you preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 C).
  • Slice tofu into pinky sized rectangles, then toss with soy sauce and ginger.
  • Spread onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown, flipping the tofu halfway through.
  • Meanwhile, cook rice vermicelli according to instructions on package, then rinse in cold water and set aside.
  • Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium heat, then add garlic and cook for about a minute. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients, stir, and let cook about 5 minutes (Taste test it! Green curry pastes can vary greatly by brand. Don’t be scared to add more paste to turn up the heat). Cover to keep warm and set aside.
  • Assembly time! Get all of your ingredients in order, then fill a shallow plate or dish with very warm water and place a rice paper in. Let sit for 30 seconds or so, until the paper is soft and pliable. Gently lift the paper from the water and transfer to a clean working surface.
  • Top with vermicelli noodles, tofu, peppers carrots, a few basil leaves, a few sprigs of cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice.
  • Tuck in the sides then gently and tightly roll up. Place the seam side down and cover with a damp cloth until ready to eat.
  • Repeat until you’ve used all your ingredients. Should make about 8 spring rolls!
  • Serve fresh with the green curry dipping sauce. Leftovers stay good covered in the fridge for about 3 days.
