Spring Roll Redux

I wasn't happy with the look of my last spring roll post, so when I made them again yesterday I took better pictures.

First, I soaked the rice noodles for 20 minutes in cold water to "cook" them.


I then shredded carrots, cucumber, and jicama. The black tool is a julienne peeler from Pampered Chef.


Step One:


Step Two:


Step Three:


I was inspired by someone else's post using peanut sauce with their spring rolls (I'm so sorry I can't remember who it was - I looked through blogs trying to find it but it was a while ago) so I used my fancy-schmancy dipping bowls:


And this Tai Peanut Sauce:


To dip:


Finished rolls:

Wow, those look incredible. I have not tried jicama. I can't find it organic around here, so I'm letting that be my excuse rather than the fact that raw root vegetables freak me out. ;)

Yum! we make those so often it's silly! Not sure if the pnut sauce thing was me but we're hooked on a simple one I make whenever we have the rolls:

peanut butter, agave, water to thin, ginger, red pepper flakes.

viola! easy and entirely too yummy. my husband begs for this stuff!

your rolls look great! and LOVE the shmancy bowls! ;)

Since you got me listed as a 'vegan blog' I figured that I needed to get some vegan food on it. Y'all would of been in deep fried heaven.
