Vegan Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce
For the spring rolls
6 rice paper wrappers
100 grams or 1/2 cup spinach roughly chopped
1/2 ear corn shaved
1 carrot julienned
1/2 medium cucumber julienned
1 red bell pepper julienned
100 grams or 1 cup red cabbage sliced
For the peanut dipping sauce
70 grams or 1/2 cup peanuts or 1/4 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons minced ginger
2 cloves garlic minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
warm water to thin it up
a dash of chili powder optional
sesame oil optional
Start by soaking the rice paper as per instructions on the package.
Prepare all the vegetables before assembling the rolls.
Use a food processor or an immersion blender to pulse the peanuts until smooth or use peanut butter. Add minced ginger, garlic and soy sauce or tamari. Add some warm water to thin it up. You will need more water if you are using whole peanuts. Add a dash of chili and a splash of sesame oil (optional).
Put your first wrapper on a cutting board and place a small portion of your vegetable slices very tightly on the bottom lower third of the wrapper. Try not to overstuff the roll, as it may break. Roll everything tightly as shown on the pictures below, just like a burrito, folding in the sides of the rice paper roll halfway.
Cut each roll in halves and serve with the peanut dipping sauce. Enjoy!
To store the rolls, wrap each of them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2-3 days. To store the sauce, cover it and refrigerate for up to 4-5 days.
