fresh mango tofu spring rolls with peanut sauce

always keep rice paper wrappers (and peanut butter) on hand. they make the best last-minute, kitchen sink dinner! throw any fresh veggies, tofu or meat you have in the fridge into the papers, whip up a quick peanut sauce and you’re good to go. (it looks pretty impressive for the minimal effort, too!)
