A fabulous recipe! Really great photography, too. These were wonderful.
Raw veggie spring rolls
For the salad:
1 zucchini, shredded or julienned
1/2 cup mix vegetables, shredded or julienned (carrots, broccoli, green beans, cucumber, radishes, tomatoes, peapods, bell peppers, whatever you like)
For the dressing:
1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
2 – 3 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon basil (fresh or dried)
1/2 teaspoon dill
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
pinch of salt, optional
handful of spinach
one package of rice spring rolls
Prepare the vegetables, then coat and toss with the dressing.
To prepare the spring rolls is quite easy. You’ll need a pie plate large enough to set the roll in, and fill it with hot water. The rolls are packaged as hard discs. As soon as they hit the hot water, they begin to soften. Within 5 – 10 seconds, the starch will give, and you can pull the disc out and place it on a flat surface, spreading out any wrinkles. Do one at a time.
Place several spinach leaves down as the base, then place a large fingerful amount of vegetable salad on top.
Fold the top and bottom edges over the salad, then pull one of the remaining sides over the filling, then roll into a cigar shaped log. Cut on the diagonal. This makes 7 – 8 spring rolls.
