Spring Rolls

Last night I crossed the last item off on my February Bucket List: making Spring Rolls.

Prepping for the meal was so much more fun than I had expected! I sipped on sake and Sapporo Japanese beer while having fun with the mixture of fresh ingredients.

Inside each roll I included sprouts, carrots, cucumber, rice vermicelli, tofu, cilantro, mint leaves, and lettuce. (I loosely followed this recipe.)

The rice paper was such an interesting texture to work with. Also, it would be great for quick meals – you simply put the rice paper in warm water for 5 seconds and *voila* it is ready to use!

For all my non-vegetarians out there, adding prawns to a roll is the perfect addition.

Serve with a peanut sauce and a side of edamame and you have a beautiful and delicious meal. My eyes kept getting wider with each bite, as I was floored by how amazing these tasted! Will definitely be a new to-go dish for my diet.
