Gỏi Cuốn Chay - Vegetarian Spring Roll

I've been on a vegetarian fast for the past two weeks, this is absolutely one of my favorite vegetarian dish!  It's healthy, simple, and fast to make.  You can pretty much use any kind of vegetables you like.  Enjoy!

2 cup of sliced cabbage
1 cup of shitake mushroom
1/2 cup of julienned carrot
1  cup of julienned tofu
1/2 cup of wood ear mushroom (reconstitute with warm water beforehand)
iceberg lettuce (cut into smaller pieces)
minced garlic
peanut butter
hoisin sauce
pickled carrots (optional)
vermicelli noodle (optional)
soy sauce
cooking oil
rice paper

1.  In a large pan add about 2 tablespoon of cooking oil and saute the minced garlic.  Add the wood ear mushroom because that takes the longest to cook > shitake > tofu > carrots > cabbage.  Cook until everything is tender.  Season with 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce.

2.  Have the rice paper, iceberg lettuce, noodle, herbs ready to roll.

3.  In a sauce pan add 1 cup of water, 2 tablespoon of peanut butter, 4 tablespoon of hoisin sauce, and sriracha to your liking.  Let everything dissolve and marry together on medium heat.  You can add pickled carrots to your sauce.

4.  Enjoy with the yummy peanut sauce.
