vietnamese spring rolls

So not everyone is a fan of vegetables, and in order to make sure we are getting them we either juice them or add a lot of other stuff to the vegetables so that they almost disguise the taste and flavour. Well no more. I now introduce to you, the Vietnamese spring rolls in which my amigo Carolyn was so kind enough to share with me.

She was just all there in the kitchen wanting to be healthy and a good friend and decided to dig deep within her childhood and discovered these bad boys. The thing with these spring rolls is that theyre nothing like the spring rolls you get from you local chinese restaurnt. These are first rolled in rice paper and not deep/oven fried. So yeah again – super healthy. Theyre simple to make and even easier to eat. So without further a due, here is the recepie:

Ingredients

  • 1 packet of rice paper. (bought at your local shop – literally anywhere)
  • stir fry pre-packed/cut packet
    • you may obviously decide to cut your own cabbage, carrots, kale, zuchinni and anything else you want to add
  • half an avocado
  • 1 baby cucumber

MethodΒ 

  • If you didn’t buy pre-packed stir fry mix – chop your vegetables
  • Cut your avocado and cucumber into thin slices
  • Individually take your rice paper sheets and soak them (one at a time) in a medium to large sized saucepan in warm water.
  • Once soft (roughly after 20 seconds of soaking) take the sheets and place them on a cutting board.
  • Load your avocado, cucumber and then other vegetables on top of avocado, at one of the rice paper sheet.
  • Fold the left and right sides in and then assume to roll the the rice paper (The rice paper might feel flimsy and fragile but its actually stronger than it looks, so dont be afraid to wrap tightly like you would your own wrap or burrito)
  • Get some soya sauce, chilli sauce and any other sauce (no ketchup just sauce) to dunk your delights in.

There’s obviously so many other cool combinations that you can put inside. Carolyn put on mango, cilantro and some other stir ingredients in there and it was super good. Avocados are in season so don’t be shy to use them.

Enjoy :))
