Now, lets get to her delicious Fresh Spring Rolls:
-Spring Roll Wrappers (Rice Paper)
-Bagged Shredded Coleslaw
-Fresh Basil Leaves
For the Sauce:
-Peanuts(or peanut butter)
-Red chili paste
1. Chop up the basil leaves and green onions. I use kitchen scissors to cut slivers off of the leaves and to cut the green onions. I find that to be easier.
2. Cut up the avocado into small chunks. I cut the avocado in half lengthwise and make horizontal and vertical cuts with a knife on each half (after removing the seed) like a tic tac toe board. Be careful not to pierce the skin. Then I take a spoon and scoop out the pieces from the skin. Easy peasy.
3. Now that all of the prep is done, it’s time to put it all together. I take one rice paper wrapper and run it under warm water to soften it. Once it is soft, I lay it on my cutting board and place a small handful of the shredded coleslaw in the middle. Next I add the basil, green onions and avocado. Finally, I fold the ends over and roll kinda like a burrito. I don’t have Done!
4. I don’t have measurements for the sauce, but basically I grind peanuts in coffee grinder and heat in sauce pan with coconut milk, red chili paste and a little salt
You can make variations on this recipe adding other fresh ingredients. My mom adds rice noodles to hers.
I love this recipe because it is simple, quick to prepare and healthy. The ingredients are all low cost as well. I love eating healthy for the low.
