Cooking Tools Required

Cutting board, Measuring cups and spoons, Mixing bowls, Mixing spoon, Sharp Knives

Ingredients

  • 10 rice paper wrap 10 inch size
  • 5 leaf lettuce torn into large pieces
  • 1 cup fresh basil whole leaves
  • ¾ cup fresh mint whole leaves
  • ¾ cup fresh cilantro whole leaves
  • 1 carrot shredded
  • 1 cup purple cabbage shredded
  • 1 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 English cucumber seeded and cut into long matchsticks
  • 1 avocado halved, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced

Peanut Sauce

  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 4 teaspoon tamari sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or more, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger finely grated

Instructions

Peanut Sauce

  • Whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, chili garlic sauce and ginger in a small bowl.
  • Whisk in 2-3 tablespoons water until desired consistency is reached; set aside.

Spring Rolls

  • Working one at a time, wet rice paper for 10-15 seconds and transfer to a work surface.
  • Place lettuce, basil, mint and cilantro in the center of each wrapper; top with carrots, cabbage, bell pepper, cucumber and avocado; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Bring the bottom edge of the wrap tightly over the filling and then folding in the sides, rolling from bottom to top until the top of the sheet is reached, being careful not to tear the rice paper; cover with damp paper towels. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Serve immediately with peanut sauce.
  • To store, cover them with a damp paper towel, then wrap well in plastic wrap, and refrigerate so as to not lose moisture from rice paper. Refrigerating firms and toughens the wrappers slightly (if they are a little dry, wipe them gently with a damp cloth).
