Instructions:

  1. Cut tofu into small cubes. Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and sauté tofu until golden brown on all sides.
  2. Fill a bowl with warm water and place a spring roll wrapper in it just until it is pliable, about 30 seconds. Remove from the water and drain briefly on a kitchen towel.
  3. Place the wrapper on your work surface and center a lettuce leaf on top of the wrapper. Leaving a 2-inch margin on the sides, Top with a small row each of the carrot, noodles, and avocado; be careful not to overstuff the roll.

  5. Set aside, seam side down. Repeat with the remaining rice paper and filling ingredients to make 10 rolls.
  6. For sauce, place all sauce ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve with the spring rolls.
