HOW TO MAKE VEGGIES SALAD ROLLS WITH SPICY PEANUT SAUCE

Okay this is one of my all time fav recipes. First off anyone who knows me knows I LOVE Vietnamese food! SO I thought I would take on my own version of Salad Rolls but incorporate all these beautiful VEGGIES! As much as I love the classic salad rolls stuffed with rice noodles, shrimp and shredded lettuce, I thought what better way to get your daily dosage of vegetables than with these gorgeous rolls. What I love about this recipe is that you can put WHATEVER your little heart desires into them! So on that note, lets get choppin!

Salad Rolls

Makes 12 Rolls

1 Package Rice Paper

1 Package Extra Firm Tofu

1 Avocado

1/2 Red Cabbage

1 Cucumber

1 Red Pepper

1 Yellow Pepper

1 Orange Pepper

4-6 Large Carrots

1 Cup Snow Peas

1 Package Fresh Basil

2-3 Cups Bean Sprouts

First up, slice tofu and all vegetables into 3-4 inch strips (try to keep them all the same length so they line up in the rolls).Rip basil off the vine but leave as whole leaves, then set aside.

Next set up your station for rolling your rolls. Place vegetables, tofu and basil on a plate. Place damp dish cloth on counter. Take rice paper and dip in bowl of warm water, then place on damp towel.

Fold towel over the rice paper and press it into the paper.

Once you have pressed hard enough to soften and saturate the rice paper, remove the dish towel from covering your rice paper.

 Fill with veggies, tofu and basil leaves (or your filling of choice).

Next fold rice paper sides over to gently cover the edges of the veggies and roll tightly.

Repeat until all veggies have been used up. 

Spicy Peanut Sauce

2 Tbs Coconut Oil

1 Can Coconut Milk

1 1/2 cups Peanut Butter ( I use Kraft Peanut butter)

2 Tbs Red Curry Paste

1 Squirt Sriracha (optional)

 

 

 

Place coconut oil in sauce pan over low heat.

Once the oil has melted, add coconut milk and peanut butter stirring until peanut butter has melted. Once peanut butter has melted, add in curry paste and  whisk until curry paste has fully dissolved. Taste sauce and add a squirt of Sriracha if you want it to be more spicy.

Next over medium heat, bring the sauce to a boil. Once it boils, lower heat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let sauce cool (it will thicken as it cools) And enjoy!

( Sidenote, I usually double my Spicy Peanut Sauce! It keeps really well in the fridge and can be used in stir fry's or over rice!)

Anyways I hope you enjoy! If you get a chance to try it, Snapchat me @dimsumdiet!

You stay hungry,

And remember, your diet starts tomorrow!
