AKA: Sticky BBQ Burritos
We love getting the kids involved in the kitchen! It might be more work and a bit messier, but instilling in them a love of food and cooking can be incredibly rewarding. One way to include kids more, without as much mess, is by letting them assemble their meal. This gives kids an opportunity to voice their preferences and feel like they helped “cook” their meal. One of our favorite recipes that allows us to prepare the ingredients ahead of time, but allows the kids to get involved with assembly is with Sticky Burritos, or BBQ Spring Rolls.
What you'll need
How to prepare the Tofu:
Now that the tofu is pressing you can start working on the rest.
Prepare the marinade:
After about an hour the tofu should look very well pressed. You can let the tofu press longer as desired.
While your tofu is marinating we can prep the rest.
Prepare the Veg
These are the veggies we use and our kids like but you can use what works best for you
At this point we need to cook the rice noodles and bake/air fry the tofu, we can do both simultaneously.
Following the instructions on how to cook your rice noodles to perfection:
Bring 6 cups of water to a boil and lightly salt the water (about a tsp)
Once the water is boiling place your rice noodle sheets to cook for the instructed time (6 minutes).
Once the noodles are cooked, strain the water off and rinse with cold water to prevent over cooking them and turning them to mush.
While cooking the noodles, let's cook the tofu.
Now that all the fillings are ready we can make our sticky burritos.
You can eat them like this or you can make a dipping sauce using some of these recommendations
