Easy Vegan Summer Rolls with 2 Dips


  • Author: Jordan Cord
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4

Description

Healthy, fresh rice paper rolls filled with crunchy veggies. Perfect for dipping in peanut or chili garlic sauce!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 rice papers
  • 4 carrots, julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1-2 heads fresh romaine
  • 4 oz. rice noodles

Creamy Peanut Dip

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • juice of 1 lime, about 3 tablespoons
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon warm water

Honey Chili Garlic Sauce

  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1/2 Tablespoon sriracha
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder

Instructions

  1. Fill a large bowl with water – large enough for soaking the rice papers. Select a smooth surface for rolling summer rolls and lightly wet it. Soak 1 rice paper for 30 to 40 seconds, until it has softened but is still slightly firm. It should be pliable, but not falling apart (see image below). It may take you a couple of tries to get the hang of this. ;)
  2. Pile your veggies onto the rice paper and gently start to roll, using your fingers to keep the veggies all tightly wrapped. I like to leave the ends undone because it makes rolling so much easier, but you can fold them up like a burrito if desired.
  3. When you finish rolling, chop the big roll into smaller sections.
  4. Dip to your heart's content!

Creamy Peanut Dip

  1. Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk to combine.

Honey Chili Garlic Sauce

  1. Add all ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk to combine.

Notes

Unless your name is Cheech or Chong, you're probably not a professional at rolling things. The trick to making these easy and rolling them tightly is to leave the ends open when you roll. You don't necessarily need to fold the ends up burrito-style – some places do and some places don't. They taste good either way!
The possibilities are endless for fillings – you can stick with what we used or switch it up completely. You could include avocado, cucumber, green onion, mango, sprouts, spinach, daikon, etc.
