Scale

Ingredients

Summer Rolls

  • 8 rice paper wrappers
  • 1 avocado 
  • Handful of fresh basil, destemmed 
  • 1/2 english cucumber 
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 carrot 
  • Sesame seeds (optional)

Peanut Sauce

  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter *
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (half a lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup 
  • 1 tablespoon water 

Instructions

  1. Slice the avocado and chop the cucumber, bell pepper, and carrot into matchsticks. 
  2. Dip a rice paper wrapper into a bowl of warm water for 2 seconds. Shake off excess water and lay on a wood cutting board or damp towel. 
  3. Add veggies to the center of the wrap. Fold up bottom half to cover, then fold in the sides. Roll tightly. Repeat until all of the veggies are used up.
  4. To make the peanut sauce, whisk all ingredients together until smooth. If it is too thick, add more water. If it is too thin, add more peanut butter.

Notes

* The runny consistency of natural peanut butter helps the sauce mix together smoother.
