- In a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, heat the sesame oil. Add the tofu strips, the hoisin sauce, the soy sauce and the rice vinegar. Cook the tofu over medium heat while turning it until it is lightly golden brown. Remove the tofu from the skillet and set aside on a large plate lined with paper towels.
- In a bowl, prepare the sauce by melting the peanut butter mixed with water in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
- Add the lemon juice, soy sauce (or tamari), garlic and cayenne pepper and mix well. Set aside.
- Moisten one rice paper wrapper at a time by dipping it in a deep dish filled with warm water. Gently pat until it gets tender.
- Place a salad leaf on the end of the rice paper wrapper, then add some tofu, mangoes, avocados, cucumbers, peppers, sesame seeds, Rice Krispies, and basil leaves.
- Be sure to leave some space on each side of the rice paper wrapper. Roll firmly, fold the edges and continue to roll tight.
- Enjoy the spring rolls with the peanut sauce.
