RECIPE TITLE " Southeast Asian Tofu Roll with Peanut Sauce Recipe"
Cooking.com Makes 6
This roll was originally inspired by the Indonesian gado gado salad - jicama, carrots, cucumbers, hard-boiled eggs, bean sprouts, tofu and any other ingredient thrown in at the whim of the chef - that is served with a peanut sauce. We then thought about how satay in Malaysia is served with compressed rice cakes. It seemed like a natural fusion/cross-cultural dish to combine the ingredients together in one sushi roll.
We find that a hand-roll is a great way to put this roll together - you are able to pack it full with lots of vegetables. When preparing it, think of an ice cream cone. You wrap the roll into a conical shape, albeit the bottom will be slightly open, just like where you bite the ice cream cone to get that melted chocolate ice cream at the bottom.

Place 1 piece nori shiny-side down on bamboo sushi mat. Using rice paddle, spread 1/2 cup Sushi Rice crosswise over one third of sheet. Arrange 1/5 tofu, carrot, bean sprouts and cucumber horizontally over middle of rice with 1/2-inch of the filling extending past edge of nori sheet. Drizzle 1 teaspoon peanut sauce over fillings.
Beginning with rice side, roll the nori around filling at a slight angle to achieve a conical shape. Repeat with remaining nori, rice, tofu, vegetables and sauce.
Serve sushi with accompaniments.
