Summer Spring Rolls

Recipe makes 12 spring rolls

Ingredients

12 rice wrap papers

½ cup grated carrots

½ yellow pepper, julienned

½ cucumber, julienned

½ avocado, sliced

½ mango, julienned

2 kiwis, sliced

½ cup of cooked vermicelli noodles

¼ cup fresh mint

Directions

  1. Chop up all your veggies and fruit and cook the vermicelli noodles.
  2. Submerge a rice paper wrap for a few seconds in warm water.
  3. Add your ingredients of choice in the center of the wrap, leaving about 4cm around each side.
  4. Fold two sides (opposite of each other) gently over the ingredients. Then, starting on the third side fold that completely over the center.   Holding the center so that your insides stay tight, start to roll the wrap firmly until everything is wrapped tightly to the end.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 with a new wrap.

Tip: Play around with the ingredients! These spring rolls are customizable, and you can add as much or as little of each ingredient as you want.
