Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   Vegetarian
Preptime   25 min

8 ounces extra-firm tofu, drained
1 1/2 ounces uncooked rice vermicelli noodles
5 teaspoons rice vinegar, divided
2 tablespoons lower-sodium soy sauce, divided
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
1 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, divided
2 teaspoons sambal oelek (ground fresh chile paste)
1 cup very thinly sliced napa (Chinese) cabbage
3/4 cup matchstick-cut carrot
1/2 cup presliced shiitake mushroom caps
2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves
8 (8-inch) round rice paper sheets
8 large basil leaves
4 green onions, each cut into 2 (4-inch) slices
1 1/2 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
1 tablespoon water

1. Cut tofu crosswise into 4 slices. Place tofu on several layers of paper towels. Cover with additional paper towels. Let stand 10 minutes, pressing down occasionally. Cut each slice in half to form 8 (3-inch) strips. 2. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water; drain.
3. Combine 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons hoisin sauce, and sambal oelek in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Stir in cabbage, carrot, mushrooms, and mint; toss gently to coat.
4. Add hot water to a large shallow dish to a depth of 1 inch. Place 1 rice paper sheet in dish; let stand 30 seconds or until soft. Place a dry kitchen towel on a work surface. Place rice paper sheet on towel. Place 1 basil leaf on bottom third of sheet, leaving a 2-inch border; top with 1 tofu slice, about 3 tablespoons cabbage mixture, about 2 tablespoons noodles, and 1 onion slice. Fold bottom of sheet over filling. Fold sides of sheet over filling; starting with filled side, roll up, jelly-roll fashion. Gently press seam to seal. Place roll, seam side down, on a serving platter (cover to keep from drying). Repeat procedure with remaining wrappers, basil, tofu, cabbage mixture, noodles, and onion.
5. Combine remaining 2 teaspoons vinegar, remaining 1 tablespoon soy sauce, remaining 1 tablespoon hoisin, peanut butter, and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Serve with summer rolls.
