Recipe: Fresh Spring Rolls

By  |  2 Comments

Here’s a really easy recipe to make “fresh” spring rolls (not fried).  These are great with your favorite dipping sauce (I make a mean peanut sauce) and quick to prepare.  Here is what you need:

Spring Roll Wrappers (Rice Paper)
Bagged Shredded Coleslaw
Fresh Basil Leaves
Green Onion

Chop up the basil leaves and green onions.  I use kitchen scissors to cut slivers off of the leaves and to cut the green onions.  I find that to be easier.

Cut up the avocado into small chunks.  I cut the avocado in half lengthwise and make horizontal and vertical cuts with a knife on each half (after removing the seed) like a tic tac toe board.  Be careful not to pierce the skin.  Then I take a spoon and scoop out the pieces from the skin.  Easy peasy.

Now that all of the prep is done, it’s time to put it all together.  I take one rice paper wrapper and run it under warm water to soften it.  Once it is soft, I lay it on my cutting board and place a small handful of the shredded coleslaw in the middle.  Next I add the basil, green onions and avocado.  Finally, I fold the ends over and roll kinda like a burrito.  Done!

You can make variations on this recipe adding other fresh ingredients.  My mom adds rice noodles to hers.

Here are some pics.  Enjoy!

    You requested to follow on Twitter. Are you a member of Atlanta Naturals? I love your spring rolls and website. I am looking to build a team for the Atlanta Naturals group, so I would love to meet you. I was wondering if you wanted to do a class for the group? Also, I recently started another group on meetup called “Women of Color Workout Too” I’m really trying to focus on my health and natural living.
