Spicy Tofu Roll



I made this Spicy Tofu Roll at the same time that I made the Golden Avocado Roll which I posted yesterday. I think my foray into rolling sushi turned out pretty well. This sushi roll contains several ingredients, but the spicy sauce is really what makes this dish.

Recipe by Hip Foodie Mom

Ingredients:
-3 cups cooked white medium grain rice
-1/4 cup Miracle Whip
-½ tablespoon Sriracha sauce + more if desired
-4 sheets nori
-2 large carrots, peeled and julienned
-1 red bell pepper, sliced thin lengthwise
-1 zucchini, julienned (do not peel)
-half package tofu, pan fried and sliced thin into strips
-low sodium soy sauce

For the spicy mayo: Mix together the Miracle Whip and sriracha sauce in a small bowl. Taste and add more sriracha sauce if desired.
To make the sushi rolls: Take one sheet of nori and place onto your sushi rolling mat. Spread about a ½ cup of cooked rice onto ⅔ of the nori, spreading it evenly with your fingers. Make sure to leave one inch uncovered (with no rice at all) at the top.
Lay in all of the raw veggies and the pan fried tofu in the center of the rice. Top with some spicy mayo. Using the mat on the end closest to you, roll from the bottom up and over the ingredients, pressing down gently but firmly to make the fillings stay in and to help shape the roll. (I used this video from Kikoman to help me visually see the rolling process.)
Using your fingers, dab just a little bit of water along the top seam of the dried seaweed and roll to seal it closed. Roll and gently squeeze one last time with the sushi mat to make sure the shape is good, set aside and continue with the other seaweed sheets.
Slice each roll into about 8-10 pieces with a sharp knife. Serve with pickled ginger, wasabi and soy sauce. This is also good with a little bit of the spicy mayo on the side.

  



It's difficult for me to say if I liked this one better or the one from yesterday. Dave preferred the avocado roll, but I really enjoyed the spicy sauce that went along with the tofu in this roll. This one also had a really nice array of colors on the inside making for a pretty presentation.
