Working With Rice Paper

Before we get into the step by step – I want to talk briefly about working with rice paper:

  • It’s a transparent, thin, brittle circle that comes in a package of multiples, like tortillas. You’ll find them in the Asian section on the shelf.
  • Dip them in a pie plate of water for only a few second seconds.  This will soften the paper and make it pliable.
  • Keep your working surface wet for easy rolling. Rice paper can tend to get sticky, but keeping your work surface wet combats this problem.

Making Spring Rolls

  1. Cut your veggies.  Everything should be cut into thin strips.  The only thing that need a dice is the jalapeño.
  2. To cut your mango, find the core, and cut closely along it, cutting off one side of the fruit.  Run your knife down the flesh lengthwise to cut strips, and loosen the fruit with a spoon.
  3. In a large shallow bowl, dip rice papers into room temperature water.
  4. Moisten only for a few seconds.  Anything longer with that will result in a floppy mess.

  5. Transfer paper to a cutting board and smooth it down flat.
  6. Add strips of cabbage.
  7. Top with strips of cucumber.
  8. Add red bell pepper.
  9. Top with shredded carrot.
  10. Add mango strips.
  11. Layer on avocado.
  12. Garnish with cilantro and jalapeño.

  13. Roll up by starting at one side.  Cover your fruits and veggies and tuck the edge underneath the veggie bundle tightly, but being gentle not to tear the paper.
  14. Continue to roll up the bundle.
  15. Fold in the edges of the paper.
  16. Complete rolling up the bundle until the back edge is sealed against itself.

Now Let’s Chat Dipping Sauce

  • honey
  • soy sauce
  • lime juice
  • coconut milk
  • sriracha

What Is The Difference Between a Spring Roll and an Egg Roll?

The difference between a spring roll and an egg roll is that spring rolls have thin, often translucent rice wrappers and usually aren’t fried, while egg rolls have thicker, deep-fried wrappings.

How Long Do Spring Rolls Keep?

The rolls taste best the day they are made, but they can be stored for 2-3 days. Wrap each roll individually in plastic wrap to keep them fresh and to keep them from sticking together. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Are Spring Rolls Healthy?

These spring rolls are filled with lots of fresh veggies, fruit, and healthy fats from avocado making them a very healthy side dish.  While the peanut sauce can be a little calorie heavy, it can be used in moderation to keep this dish low cal.
