Easy & delicious raw Spring rolls!

In Spring when the weather here on the white coast is really warming up we look to flavourful but lighter food & our guests just love this raw spring roll starter!

Ingredients for the rolls:

4 large or 8 small round rice paper sheets

2 medium carrots peeled & cut into julienne strips

1 small red pepper cut into thin strips

1 small green pepper cut into thin strips

1 red onion cut into thin strips

1/2 a cucumber, seeds removed & cut into thin strips

A large handful of spinach cut finely 

Juice & zest of a lime

1 clove of garlic finely chopped

Small piece of ginger finely chopped

Small handful of fresh mint leaves finely chopped

Ingredients for the dipping sauce:

Small piece of ginger peeled

1 small clove of garlic

Small handful of fresh mint leaves chopped

Juice & zest of a fresh lime

75 – 100ml coconut aminos

A small teaspoon of raw organic honey

Method to make the rolls:

Have a bowl with water to soak the rice paper sheets ready. Mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl and season, leave to marinate for about 10 – 15 minutes, turning every 5 minutes or so.

When ready soak 1 sheet of rice paper for about 10 seconds, shake off excess water, put onto a plate and place a generous amount of the filling onto the rice paper and roll quite tightly.

Method to make the sauce:

Using a hand blender, mix all the ingredients together and season to taste…& if you like it spicy? you can add in a little chili.
