  • 1-2 Tbsps warm water, or a lot more as needed
  • optional garnish: crushed peanuts, spray of smashed red pepper


  • 10 spring roll rice paper wrappers
  • 1 big carrot, peeled off and julienned
  • 1 big cucumber, julienned (you can peel off, however I do not)
  • 1/ 2 of a large red pepper, julienned
  • 1/3 cup chopped purple cabbage
  • 1 ounce cooked rice noodles/rice vermicelli (optional)
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • handful fresh cilantro (and/or mint, basil)

  1. First, reviewed the post above to discover some tips/tricks for making these summer season rolls. Make sure every single active ingredient in the summer rolls is prepared/chopped/cooked before you assembling.
  2. Prepare the dipping sauce: You could blend everything with each other in a bowl or make use of a food cpu. I always blend them due to the fact that it conserves me from cleansing the food cpu. Add everything to a tool bowl (except water as well as optional garnish) and also blend until smooth. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of cozy water or till you reach preferred thinness. Put right into a serving bowl/ramekin and also top with garnish. Establish aside.
  3. Prepare the rice paper wrappers: Pour warm water into a big dish or 9-inch square or round baking pan. The baking pan is exactly what I constantly use. Functioning with one by one, dip the rice paper wrapper into the warm water for 15-20 seconds (or whatever the plan suggests). Generally it’s around that time. You want the wrapper to be soft, yet still a little solid and also flexible. Promptly eliminate from the water and also location level onto a work surface area such as a big plastic or ceramic reducing board. Sometimes I use a huge wood reducing board, however the wrappers stay with it a little a lot more. Pat the wrapper somewhat dry.
  4. Fill the rolls: Place a few sticks of carrot, cucumber, red pepper, as well as a spray of cabbage on top of the lower 1/3 of the rice paper as discussed as well as imagined in the blog post. Then, a percentage of noodles (if utilizing), a piece or two of avocado and a little bit of cilantro. Lay 1/2 of a lettuce leaf on the top as well as 4 pieces of shrimp on top- as visualized above. Keep in mind, do not overstuff the roll. Start tiny then add much more, as required, as you roll each one.
  5. Roll them: Roll every little thing up tightly. To do so, delicately pull up all-time low of the roll as well as surrender the dental filling. Roll and also use your hands to put the filling up in as you go. It’s essentially like you’re rolling a burrito! Remember, you want a quite tight roll. You can fold in the sides of the rice paper roll if you want, however sometimes I don’t.
  6. After rolling each, area on a serving plate. Cut in half, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and also offer with peanut sauce. This quantity is enough for Kevin and also I as well as there are constantly a couple surplus for lunch the next day.
  7. Make ahead tip/storing: Cover rolls separately in cling wrap (suggested to prevent sticking and after that tearing) and layer in a tupperware in between sheets of parchment or wax paper. Store up to 2-3 days. In terms of preference, the rolls are well offered fresh the day they are made. Cover sauce securely as well as store in the refrigerator for a couple days.
