Recipe: Rainbow spring Rolls: Ingredients: Dipping sauce 1/4 cup hoisen 1/4 cup peanut butter Start with 3-4 tbls of water add more if you want your sauce thinner Juice of one Lime 2 garlic cloves 2 shallots 1 tbls any mild oil optional garnish: cilantro, roasted peanuts, red pepper flakes or siracha swirl
Filling: * 10-15 spring roll rice paper wrappers * 1 large carrot, peeled and julienned * 3 sprigs green onions thinly sliced * 1 large cucumber, julienned * 1/4 cup shredded purple cabbage * 1 green mango, julienned * 1 red pepper, julienned * 1 yellow pepper, julienned * 2 ounce cooked rice noodles * Few sprigs of fresh cilantro and/or mint, Thai basil * Black sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
Dipping sauce: Sauté the garlic and shallots In oil for a few minutes until slightly crispy but not burnt. whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, top with garnish and set aside. Prepping the rice paper: Pour hot water into a pie pan. Work with one wrapper at a time, dip the rice paper into the water for 15-20 seconds until the wrapper is soft and pliable. remove from the water and place flat onto a work surface.
Filling the rolls: I like to arrange the veggies on a platter and have my kids choose a few sticks of their favorite veggies, add a small amount of herbs and noodles and then roll them like a burrito, cut in half, garnish with sesame seeds and serve with sauce. *They are best eaten immediately or if you want to make them a few hours ahead make sure you wrap them with a plastic wrap or a damp towel. You are now eating the Rainbow .. Enjoy
