Raw rice paper spring rolls are a new favorite dinner of mine. They are super easy to make, you can basically put anything you like in them, and most importantly – they are ridiculously healthy and delicious.
Raw rice paper spring rolls
These fresh and healthy raw rice paper rolls are served with a flavorful peanut dipping sauce. I have heard that some of you are asking for som tips of how to make these (as it can be a little tricky in the beginning) so along with the recipe I will give you a few tips.
Raw rice paper rolls are one of those meals that most people really love but also assume are just a little too tricky to make.
The rice paper rolls are completely clean, fresh and vegan – but feel free to add your favorite flavors – everything from the protein of your choice to other vegetables can be easily added. To give the rolls extra flavor I made a peanut dipping sauce – if you do not have time, just mix Japanese soy sauce, lime and honey – super fresh too!
Most the ingredients can be found in the ordinary supermercado but some of them you will only find in Asian food markets. If you are in Palma, there is one located on Avinguda de Joan Miró 38 – the store is called Especial Nisha Stores.
Tips to make rice paper spring rolls easy
I have three tips on how to neatly roll the rice paper rolls:
my first tip is to use two rice papers per roll, I have come to understand that one of the most common problems is that the papers can burst quit easy.
put the the kale and carrots in the middle and the softer ingredients around them – so that their sharp edges do not break the paper.
do not put too much filling in each roll – if your super hungry – make more rolls.
Raw rice paper spring rolls
This is what you need and how you make them (6 rice paper rolls):
12 sheets of round rice paper (these can be found in any Asian food market)
100 grams of Kelp noodles (these are raw noodles made from sea grass, also found in Asian food markets)
1/4 red kale head
Chili pepper (how much is depending on how hot you want it)
How to make raw rice paper spring rolls
Place cilantro leaves, sesame seeds and noodles in the bottom than place the filling in the middle of the paper. Fold over the bottom of the paper gently, then fold in the edges and roll up the roll, it will stick easily.
Peanut dipping sauce (non raw)
This is what you need and how you make it:
1 table spoon coconut oil
1/2 deciliter peanut butter (I prefer the crunchy kind)
2 1/2 deciliter coconut milk
2 table spoons sweet chili sauce
2 table spoons Japanese soy sauce
Fry the onions in coconut oil. When the onions are golden brown, add the peanut butter and stir. Add coconut milk, sweet chili sauce and Japanese soy and let the dipping sauce boil down until it got the right consistency, decide how you like it!
Serve them just as they are with a small bowl of dipping sauce for each guest – a healthy, delicious and very beautiful meal!
