Spring Rolls
Peanut Sauce


Instructions Checklist
  • To prepare spring rolls: Thinly slice beet and radish and cut each slice in half.

  • Soak one wrapper at a time in a shallow dish of very hot water until softened, about 30 seconds. Lift out, let excess water drip off and lay on a clean, dry cutting board.

  • Arrange 2 halved beet slices, facing in opposite directions, horizontally in the center of a wrapper. Place 2 avocado slices vertically next to the beets. Add 2 halved radish slices vertically, facing each one opposite the one next to it, next to the avocado. Top the beets with 1/4 cup carrot. Top the avocado and radishes with 1/4 cup cabbage. Place 1 basil leaf on the carrots and cabbage and 1 mint leaf directly below the basil. Fold the wrapper over the filling and roll into a tight cylinder, folding in the sides as you go. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling. Cut each finished roll in half.

  • To prepare sauce: Whisk peanut butter, tamari (or soy sauce), water, rice vinegar, syrup, garlic and crushed red pepper (if using) in a small bowl until smooth.

  • Serve the rolls with the dipping sauce.


People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.

I made these for an easy virtually no cook dinner tonight with the veggies I had. Everyone loved them and went back for thirds! I made double the peanut sauce because it is so extra. This recipe rivals takeout any day! Read More
