HomeMade Spring Rolls…An Easy Recipe From Sweet Basil


This recipe is really easy; it’s really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.


3 sheets rice paper

Spicy Sauce
1 Tbsp. reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. sriracha

1 c carrots, shredded
1 c broccoli slaw or chopped broccoli
2 bell peppers, sliced
1 c mushrooms, sliced

Protein: select one

6 oz chicken breast, shredded
6 oz turkey, sliced
6 oz tofu, crumbled


Use whatever vegetables and protein you have on hand; feel free to improvise! The only tricky part is learning how to handle the rice paper; after that, it’s a cinch!

Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.

Fill a shallow dish with hot tap water. Working one at a time, immerse the rice paper in the hot water. Remove from the water and lay flat on a clean kitchen towel. Spread sauce on the rice paper, then fill with 1/3 of the vegetables and meat or tofu.

Fold in sides of the paper to form a seal, then roll from the bottom of the circle away from you to form an egg roll shape. Repeat until all three rice papers have been filled. Serve immediately.

Makes 3 rolls.

Enjoy!         Proverbs 3:5-6l308231006.jpg
