Vegetable Avocado Rice Paper Wraps with Peanut Sauce

When I crave a light lunch or a quick snack, rice paper wraps are my go-to meal of choice.

I love the fact that I can whip one of these up using whatever fresh veggies I have on hand

in my kitchen or are available in my local farmer’s market.

Best of all, these wraps are so light and tasty!

Many people call these rice paper wraps, spring rolls.

Whatever you call them, the tasty results are the same!

Of course, the homemade peanut dipping sauce is clearly the best part of the meal.

It’s very easy to make the sauce using organic peanut butter, hoisin sauce, garlic, chili garlic

sauce, Braggs liquid aminos, and a little warm water.

And you can add more sweetness, if more prefer.

Rice paper veggie wraps are so versatile.

The vegetables used in this recipe are merely a suggestion.

Make this your own using other vegetables in season that you have in your kitchen.

How to prepare the peanut dipping sauce:

Add sauce ingredients (except water) to a medium bowl and whisk until smooth.

Add 1-2 tablespoons of warm water to the ingredients — or until you reach desired thinness.

Pour into a serving bowl.

Set the sauce aside.

How to prepare the rice paper wrappers

Pour warm water into a large bowl or 9-inch square or round baking pan.

Some people prefer to use special spring roll water bowls like this one above.

Dip one rice paper wrapper into the warm water at a time for 15-20 seconds (or follow the

package instructions).

You’ll want your wrapper to be soft, yet still slightly firm and pliable.

Quickly remove from the water and place flat onto a work surface such as a large wooden or

ceramic cutting board.

Pat the wrapper slightly dry.

How to roll a rice paper wrap:

Place a small amount of each washed and prepped vegetable very tightly on 1/3

of the slightly firm rice paper wrapper.

Place them on the bottom 1/3 of the rice paper so it’s easier to roll up–try not to

over-stuff the roll.

Start with a small amount of filling then add a little more until you find what works

with your size/brand of rice paper roll.

Roll everything up tightly–much like you would when creating a burrito.

Gently pull up the bottom of the roll and roll over the filling.

Next, roll and use your hands to tuck the filling in as you go.

Remember, you want to end up with a very tight roll.

Fold in the sides of the rice paper roll, if you wish.

After rolling each wrap, place it on a serving plate.

Cut the wraps in half.
