Summer Rolls: Recipe of the Week



This is one of my favorite things to eat.  I love the crunch and freshness.  Enjoy!



Rice Paper Wrappers

1 bunch of romaine lettuce, chopped

1 bunch of basil, chopped

1 bunch of mint, chopped

1 – 2 Carrots, julienne

1 Avocado, sliced

1 Red Bell Pepper, julienne

Rice Noodles

1 Cucumber, julienne

Protein: Tofu, Shrimp, etc.



1/4 cup peanut butter

2 Tablespoon of Hoisin Sauce

1 teaspoon of soy sauce

1 teaspoon of fish sauce

1Tablespoon of rice vinegar

1 teaspoon of minced garlic

1 Tablespoon of warm water

1 to 2 Tablespoon of chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon of Sriracha sauce

crushed peanut as garnish



The biggest task of this recipe is the prep work of chopping, chopping, and more chopping.  If you are adding a protein, make sure it is cooked and ready to use.  Cook the rice noodles according to directions.  Boil the water and pour it into a big bowl where you can submerge the wrapper till it is soft.  Place the wrapper on a flat surface and start  with some romaine lettuce and herbs in the middle (make sure there is half an inch not touched on top and bottom) then add noodles, protein, and veggies.  I fold down the top and bottom, then roll like a burrito.  Repeat and have fun with your toppings!

The dipping sauce is easy to make: just throw all of the ingredients in the blender and blend.  This is a wonderful dish for the Summer and can be catered to a variety of dietary needs!
