Colorful veggie rice paper rolls with peanut butter sauce
I have been so excited to share these super colorful rice paper rolls with you lovelies – they are so easy to make, beyond delicious and are one of my favorite ways to up my veggie intake! As I have shared before I am not quite as good at eating my greens and veggies as I am with my fruit, so this is the perfect way for me to do something about that! I love how easy these are to make and that you can pretty much just add whatever veggies, fruit, herbs etc. that you have available – haha whenever I need to empty out my fridge I always make these, you just put everything in there! I love to serve them with a homemade (warm) peanut butter sauce, soy sauce and chili sauce, so yum! I usually make these as a side or as an entree, but if you make enough and maybe add some more protein then they would work great as a full meal as well. Oh and always make sure to make a lot of these, they keep well in the fridge so I love to have some extra ones for my lunch or dinner the following day.
Your veggies (and fruit) of choice – I used purple cabbage, spinach, carrot, avocado and mango
Fresh herbs – mint leaves, cilantro etc.
Soy sauce and sweet chili sauce for dipping
Peanut butter sauce – see the recipe below
Peanut butter sauce
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
The juice from 1/2 lime
1/2 tablespoon pure maple sirup
A little boiling water to mix it with
Simply add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix them well together – add a little water at a time until you have your desired consistency.
- Start by washing and prepping the fruit and veggies – you can either slice, grate or chop them, whatever you prefer.
- Fill a pan with warm water and carefully dip a sheet of rice paper in it for a couple of seconds until it has softened. Place the rice paper on a clean kitchen towel and add your fillings of choice in the middle, be careful not to add to much and not too close to the sides or it will be hard to close and roll.
- When you have added your fillings you fold the left and right side of the rice paper towards the middle to cover the fillings. Then you fold the end rice paper that are towards you over the middle and roll it until it is closed – try to roll it as tight as possible without breaking the rice paper. Repeat until you have made as many rice paper rolls as needed.
- Cut the rice paper rolls in half and serve them with soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, peanut butter sauce or whatever else kind of sauce or dipping you prefer – enjoy!
