Step 1: Fry Tofu

14 ounces firm tofu, cut into strips

Dry tofu strips with paper towels. Turn heat on high and add in oil. Fry tofu strips until golden brown on all sides, transfer tofu strips to plate and set aside.

Step 2: Stir fry Radishes

1 cup sliced leeks

Wash the radishes under cold running water to remove some of the salt, squeeze the water out and set them aside. Turn stove on high heat and add in oil and leeks into a large pan or wok. Stir fry the leeks until they are golden brown and then add in the radishes, salt, pepper, sugar and mushroom seasoning. Stir fry the radishes for about 2-3 minutes, transfer them to a bowl and set aside.

Step 3: Cook Vegetables

2 cups shredded jicama
1 cup shredded yam
½ cup shredded carrot
1 cup shredded taro root

Turn stove on high heat, add oil to a large pan or wok and add in the vegetables. Stir fry the vegetables for about 5-6 minutes or until they are slightly golden brown and wilted. When the vegetables have completed cooking, pour them on top of the radishes and allow them to cool.

Step 4: Assemble the rolls

Warm water
Green lettuce
Sliced cucumbers
Mint
Cilantro

Rinse yam noodles under cold running water while separating them and squeeze out liquid. Cut the noodles into 2 inch pieces and add them into the cooked vegetables. Then add in the fried tofu and rice powder mixing the ingredients until combined. Taste the vegetable tofu mixture and adjust seasonings if needed.

Dip the rice paper in warm water, shake off all the excess, and place it on a flat surface. Then place the fresh vegetables and herbs on the center of the rice paper. Next put the vegetable tofu noodle mixture in a row below the fresh vegetables. Fold the two sides of the rice paper and tightly roll the rolls. Repeat this process until you completed rolling all the spring rolls. Serve the spring rolls with the vegetarian dipping sauce. The recipe for the sauce can be found here:  http://yummies4dummies.blogspot.com/2017/02/vietnamese-dipping-sauce-vegetarian.html

*****If you are using bean thread noodles, soak them in hot water for about 7-8 minutes, rinse and drain. Make sure they are completely dry before adding them to the cooked vegetables.

Sticky rice:

2 cups glutinous rice
1. Wash glutinous rice several times until the water runs clear. Soak rice in water for about 1 hour or more (preferably overnight), rinse and drain.

4. Remove coconut Pandan sauce from the heat, add sticky rice into a bowl and pour the sauce into the sticky rice mixing it until combined. Cover the bowl and allow it to sit for about 30-40 minutes so that the rice absorbs the coconut Pandan sauce.

1 teaspoon lime juice

1. Add sugar to cream and whip until there are stiff peaks.
2. In a separate bowl, mix coconut milk, condensed milk, salt, lime juice and coconut extract until combined.

4. Transfer to a freezer-proof container and freeze for 4-5 hours or until solid.

Toppings:

Sprig of mint (optional)

1. To make the coconut cream topping, dissolved the tapioca flour or cornstarch into the water. Then add your coconut cream into a small pot and turn your stove on medium heat. Now add in the sugar and salt and dissolve it completely into the coconut cream. Next add in the cornstarch water mixture that was prepared earlier and stir it into the coconut cream until it thickens. Then set it aside to cool off.
2. To serve dessert, add warm sticky rice into a serving plate, drizzle coconut cream topping on top of sticky rice, sprinkle seeds, and scoop ice cream on top. Garnish with a sprig of mint and serve immediately.
