Fresh Vegetable Spring Rolls with Ginger Peanut Sauce

To speed things up, prep your vegetables early and simply assemble them right before serving. Or you can wrap them ahead of time and chilled up to 2 hours. Cover with a lightly damp paper towel to keep them from drying out. For a heartier dish, add tofu or chicken.




  • 8 to 10 (10-inch) rice paper wrappers
  • 5 green leaf lettuce leaves, torn into large pieces
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 3/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 English cucumber, seeded and cut into long matchsticks
  • 1 avocado, halved, peeled, seeded and thinly sliced


  1. Whisk Ginger Peanut Sauce with lime juice, brown sugar and hot sauce. Whisk in 2-3 tablespoons water until desired consistency is reached; set aside
  2. Working one at a time, wet rice paper for 10-15 seconds and transfer to a work surface. Place lettuce, basil, mint and cilantro in the center of each wrapper; top with Sushi Ginger, carrots, cabbage, bell pepper, cucumber and avocado; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bring the bottom edge of the wrap tightly over the filling and then folding in the sides, rolling from bottom to top until the top of the sheet is reached, being careful not to tear the rice paper; cover with damp paper towels. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling. Slice to desired thickness.
  4. Serve immediately with Ginger Peanut Sauce.
