RAINBOW SUMMER ROLLS | gluten-free, vegan

 

Hi beautiful humans. Those who have read my post know I needed to bring some sunshine and rainbows into my life. That’s why I started the day with my favorite – sticky oats and brought these beautiful vegan summer rolls to work with me. You may have heard of spring rolls as well, but many people don’t know the difference. Summer rolls are way healthier for you than spring rolls – they’re gluten-free, raw and oh-so-yummy.

I decided to share the recipe only if they tasted good, and oh boy, these dipped in peanut sauce are the sh*t.

VEGAN SUMMER ROLLS

Bring the sunshine with these delicious, fresh and light summer rolls that look and taste like a rainbow.

Ingredients

  • 8 rice paper rounds/wraps
  • 2 medium carrots shredded
  • 1/4 head red cabbage shredded
  • 2 leaves lettuce
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped (3 tbsp)
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves, chopped (3 tbsp)

Instructions

  1. Fill a large bowl or a soup plate with warm water.

  2. Soak 1 rice paper in warm water for 10-30 seconds to soften. Remove from water and transfer to a cutting board.

  3. Mash avocado and add lemon.

  4. Spread 2 teaspoons of the guacamole (mashed avocado) on the rice paper.

  5. Cut cucumber into slices, shred carrots and red cabbage with a grater (or slice thinly with a knife). Cut lettuce leaves.

  6. Place lettuce, cabbage, carrot, cucumber slices, chopped mint and some chopped cilantro on the rice paper (take care not to overstuff!).

  7. Roll up rice paper tightly. Fold in sides and continue rolling.

  8. Top rice paper roll with more cilantro (or parsley, in case you don't like cilantro!).

  9. Et voilá! First summer roll done. Cut to take a beautiful picture for insta or just dip in peanut sauce/butter and enjoy 😻

The picture shows 2 of these delicious rice paper rolls cut up. Just cut twice to take some beautiful shots for Instagram! What would you add to summer rolls? I need new ideas what to fill them with!! Let me know in a comment down below or under my recent post on Instagram. You can always mix up the ingredients and add whatever you like to rice paper rolls! Go with rice noodles and no avocado for a high carb low fat version, or peanut butter sauce inside and bean/alfalfa sprouts for a low carb/high fat version! As always, I love seeing your recreations. 🌈
