Lunch & Dinner:

Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

No stovetop or oven is required for this super light and refreshing vegetarian recipe that is an ideal lunch, dinner or appetizer. Though the recipe calls for our favorite spring roll must-haves, such as butter lettuce, cabbage and cucumber, feel free to get creative and add leftover chicken from the fridge or other fresh produce to make this dish your own. Just be sure not to skip the delectable peanut sauce made with Nate’s Hot Honey for a perfectly sweet and spicy dip to accompany each bite.

Directions

In a bowl, whisk together the peanut sauce ingredients. Add a small amount of water, if needed, to thin the sauce to desired consistency. Set aside. 

Cook the rice noodles according to the package directions, then drain and rinse. Toss with sesame oil and salt, then set aside. 

Slice the red cabbage, carrots, cucumber and jalapeños very thin, and no longer than 3 inches. You want everything to be about as thin as a matchstick. Set your sliced veggies to the side to prepare for filling your spring rolls.  

Fill a shallow dish (larger than your spring roll wrappers) with warm water. Place a wrapper in the water, let it soak for about 15-20 seconds or until softened, then remove to a plate or cutting board lightly sprinkled with water.  

Assemble your spring roll in this order- wrapper, butter lettuce, a pinch of rice noodles, 1 or 2 sticks of each vegetable (cabbage, carrot, cucumber, jalapeño), then a pinch of cilantro and green onion. The key is to not overfill the wrappers; you’ll need less filling than you think! 

Tuck in the sides to hold everything in, then roll up like a little burrito. Moisten the end with a little water, if needed, to make sure the end of the roll holds together. Repeat with the remainder of your wrappers. 

Serve immediately with your peanut sauce.
