HOW TO MAKE VEGAN SPRING ROLLS
Making this Vegan Spring Rolls recipe is seriously so easy. Here’s what you need to do!
1. Wash all of the veggies and slice them into thin strips except for the spinach and romaine lettuce. The chives can be sliced into thin pieces as well. Tear the romaine lettuce into 3-4 inch pieces and rinse the spinach.
2. Place some warm water on a large dinner plate or in the bottom of a flat bowl. Soak the spring rolls briefly in warm water and put them on a cutting board.
3. Place a piece of romaine lettuce in the center of a spring roll and add the rest of the veggies. Make the pile 3-4 inches long and 1 inch wide, neatly in the center of the wrap. Repeat the process until all the rolls have been filled.
4. Turn the sides of the wrapper over the vegetables about 1 inch in. Then fold 1/2 of the wrapper from the other end and roll the veggies towards the remaining spring roll wrap. Serve on a tray or plate.
5. Prepare the peanut sauce by adding the water, peanut butter, soy sauce, hot sauce, maple syrup, ginger, garlic, and rice vinegar in a bowl or blender.
6. Blend in a blender or with an immersion blender for 30 seconds or until it’s smooth.
7. Drizzle over the spring rolls or serve in a bowl. Enjoy!
VEGAN SPRING ROLLS RECIPE FAQS
ARE SPRING ROLLS SPICY?
These spring rolls aren’t spicy, but the peanut butter sauce does have a little kick of heat from the hot sauce. If you don’t want any spiciness, you can leave out the hot sauce. Or, to make them spicier, add in some extra.
CAN I ADD FRESH HERBS?
Absolutely! If you want some fresh herbs in your spring roll, go for it! Basil, cilantro, oregano, parsley, or mint would all be good choices. Just pick something you like on its own.
HOW LONG DO I WET THE WRAPPERS?
The wrappers are quite brittle and stiff when in the package. Only a quick dip in warm water is all you need. At first, they will be still somewhat stiff but by the time you place the vegetables in them they soften up quickly and are easier to roll when they are still half way firm.
CAN I MAKE THIS RECIPE WITHOUT THE SPRING ROLLS?
Yep! It’s fine to make a deconstructed spring roll by adding all the ingredients to a bowl. Then drizzle with the peanut sauce and dig in. You get all the nutrients without messing with the spring roll wrappers.
ARE SPRING ROLL WRAPPERS GLUTEN FREE?
It depends on what you use. Reach for the rice spring roll wrappers for gluten-free. The ones with wheat naturally have gluten, so you aren’t going to want to use them if you’re avoiding gluten.
