Healthy Spring Rolls!

springrolls
Fresh & Light Spring
Directions:
1. Make 1 serving of thin rice noodles according to package instructions.
2. Lay out chopped vegetables, and a wide bowl of water to dip the spring roll wrappers into.
3. Place two wrappers in water for about 10 seconds, just until they soften, then pull one out
slowly and lay flat on your work space. Absorb any excess water with a towel.
4. Add a small amount of noodles or quinoa, and various combinations of vegetables into the
center of the spring roll sheet. Don’t put in too much, just about 4 finger’s worth.
5. Pull one horizontal end of the sheet over the center contents and tuck under, then tuck in
the two ends like a burrito, and finally roll it up by pulling the other horizontal end around
the entire roll. This might take a little practice.
6. If your spring roll sheets are thin and not staying together, add the second sheet and wrap
around the first in the same way.
7. Repeat until all your veggies are used up, not letting the outside of the spring rolls touch
because they will be sticky.
8. Combine all the dipping sauce ingredients and serve!
