Vietnamese Summer Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce
Recipe Type: Main
Fresh summer Vietnamese rolls – filled with all the good stuff and no preservatives!
- For the Summer Rolls:
- 5-6 rice paper wraps
- 2 large handfuls of mixed greens
- 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 orange or yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 1 handful of long, thinly sliced cucumber slices
- 1 large carrot, thinly sliced
- 1 avocado, thinly sliced
- A few pieces of fresh basil
- More optional fillings: mango slices, purple cabbage slices, rice noodles, cooked prawns
- For the Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce:
- 2 tsp all-natural peanut butter
- 1 tsp coconut aminos, soya sauce or tamari
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- The Juice of 1 small lime
- A sprinkle of chilli flakes and dried ginger
- Take a rice paper wrap and hold it under the tap under running hot water for about 5-10 seconds, until just soft. Lay the wrap down on a flat surface, like a cutting board. Lay the wrap flat and make sure to be gentle to avoid small holes or tearing. About 1-2 inches from the bottom of the wrap, layer a few mixed greens, a few slices of eat veggie and a piece of basil. Start by rolling from the bottom, tucking in each side of the wrap and holding tightly until fully wrapped. This may take a few practice tries before you get it right, just be patient! For the Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce, blend all ingredients in a blender or shake it up in a jar. Dip the rolls into the sauce for a delicious lunch or snack!
- Enjoy fresh.
