Fresh Spring Rolls

What you’ll need:


  • Cutting board and knife
  • Shallow bowl or pie pan of warm water



  • 12-16 8-inch rice paper wrappers
  • Optional veggies: carrots, beets, radishes, cucumbers, avocado, greens of any kind, snow peas, sweet or spicy peppers
  • Optional fruits: melon, mango, apple
  • Optional fresh herbs: purple basil, cilantro, bronze fennel fronds, scallions
  • Optional protein: cooked shrimp, cooked chicken, lightly fried tofu

Dipping Sauce:

  • ¼ cup hoisin
  • 2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1+ tsp chili paste

  • Prep filler ingredients. Firm veggies and fruits should be thinly sliced or julienned into 2-4 inch pieces. Soft veggies and fruits should be sliced into thin and narrow slabs. Keep herbs in 2-4 inch long stems and pieces.
  • Place one rice paper wrapper in a shallow bowl of warm water for about 10-15 seconds, until soft and pliable.
  • Remove wrapper and lay it down on a flat surface, unwrinkling as much as possible.
  • Pile choice fillings in the middle, upper third of the wrap, keeping them tightly packed, running horizontally lengthwise.

  • Fold the top of the wrap down until the top of the wrap meats the middle, tucking in the edge. Then fold in the sides. Roll the wrapper downwards into a neat roll shape, keeping the wrapper taught so fillings stay together.

  • To make the dipping sauce, whisk together hoisin, peanut butter, vinegar, oil, and chili paste.
  • Dip and enjoy!
