Recipe Box: Julia's Healthy Veggie Rolls

Last fall I shared a recipe for Chipotle Pumpkin Soup from member, Julia Longueville, who runs a delightful foodie blog called, Hazelnut. A few weeks ago, Julia uploaded a new recipe to her profile page and I couldn’t resist sharing it: Baked Tofu Rolls. Julia describes the rolls as follows:

These are insanely healthy. Packed with low-fat protein and tons of veggies, they are great for giving you some energy mid-day without weighing you down! Easily sub in chicken or just make all veggie if you aren’t a tofu fan. Any way you make them, these are a hit!

Without further ado, here is Julia’s recipe:
