Prep all your ingredients on a work station.
Take one piece of rice paper and dip it into warm water for about 5 seconds. You may need to rotate the wrapper to evenly moisten it in the water. Place rice paper on a plate or cutting board.
Add bi chay (tofu mixture) ⅓ from the bottom of the rice paper. Leaving about an inch of space on each side of the wrapper.
Add vegetables and herbs.
Fold the bottom end of the rice paper over the filling.
Pull the two sides of the wrapper over to seal the filling.
Roll and tuck the filling in tightly until you complete the roll. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.

Serve with vegan nuoc cham dipping sauce or peanut sauce.
Adding too much filling and veggies will make your rolls big and a bit more difficult to wrap.
It’s best to soak the rice paper in warm water. When the water is too hot, the rice paper will become soft quickly, making it difficult to work with.
Do not soak the rice paper for too long. The rice paper will become too soggy and tear with too much water.
Work quickly to avoid the rice paper getting too sticky and dry, which may tear when you roll.
Best to eat right away at room temperature.
To store overnight or to for to-go options, wrap each roll individually in plastic wrap and keep it in an airtight container.
To reheat overnight leftovers, microwave for about 15 seconds to soften the rice paper.
