Fresh Spring Rolls


For a while, I wanted to try preparing spring rolls and have bought the rice paper sheets for a few months, but every time something was coming up, either travel or work. Not that they took too much time, but somehow, I always left it for next week and the next week finally come 🙂 I just had them for dinner.
Looking into different recipes, I see they can be made with a variety of ingredients, and can be prepared fully vegetarian or with some type of fish. I love them and will try to prepare them again, maybe next time will try frying them 🙂

Servings: 16-18 Time to prepare: 40- 50 min
  • 8-9 of rice sheets
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1/3 cucumber
  • 100 gr tofu
  • 100 gr prawns/ srimps
  • 1/2 paprika
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 handful of spinach leaves
  • coriander/Cilantro
  • chives
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or sesame
Optional Ingredients:
  • rice noodles
For the sauce:
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. water ( maybe 1 extra)
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
How to:
  1. For a few minutes toss the prawns with olive oil or if you have sesame is better.
  2. Cut all veggies into julienne strips and the tofu.
  3. For the rice, sheets use a shallow pan or plate and fill with warm water.
  4. Place one rice paper in the water and let it rest for about 20- 30 seconds, give or take.
  5. Take it out on a cutting a towel.
  6. Now time to place the filling onto the bottom side of the sheet. I started with 2-3 spinach leaves, tofu, veggies, and prawns. Leave place from both sides.
  7. Start with the fold of the lower edge up over the fillings, rolling upward just until the filling is compactly enclosed. Fold over the short sides.
  8. Cut it into half and leave it on a plate or cutting board. I made the mistake to place them one over another and after that they were a bit sticky, I would suggest decorating them in a circle on a plate 🙂
  9. Serve and Enjoy either with just soy sauce or the one below.
For the sauce:
  • In small saurces plate add the peanut butter soy sauce and lemon juice and mix well.
  • Add water and if necessary add one or 2 spoons more water.
