My favorite spring roll recipe.
"These are my favorite in the summer! I use whatever I have chicken, shrimp, or pork are great in there simmer lightly with ginger and garlic. Veggies! Go crazy, my favorites are green onion, carrots, peas in the pod, and even cucumber. Noodles sometimes no noodles. Whatever you like, we sometimes make I spring bar, and each makes there own. Peanut sauce is perfect!! Yum! Yum! "
In a large bowl, combine the carrots, scallions, cabbage, olive oil, cilantro and pepper; toss well. Let marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Place noodles in a medium bowl. Cover with boiling water and soak for 10 minutes, or until softened. Drain well and snip into 2" pieces.
Soften rice paper round in warm water. Place about 2 tablespoons of the noodles and 2 tablespoons of the vegetable mixture on each rice paper round, about 1" from the lower edge. Sprinkle with basil. Fold the bottom edge over the filling, fold in both sides and roll up tightly.
Dipping sauces can be kept refrigerated for about one week.

H_Love1988 3y agoThese were very good. However, I added an additional cup of cabbage, 1/3 didn't seem like it was enough in comparison to the other ingredients. Will try with a greater variety of vegetables next time.

summerhogan 3y agoThese are great and the sauces are excellent.
IvySue 4y agoSpring rolls are a great item to keep in the fridge for when you need a snack and this is a good recipe that you can change it up as you like. There's definitely an art to wrapping a spring roll, which I haven't accomplished yet, but next time I do it I'm sure they'll look better! I will be making these again to have around for snacking, for sure.
cdn_cook 5y agoI added some sesame oil and soy sauce to the filling, and have added cooked and drained ground pork and even a can of crab meat. It's a great recipe on its own or to build on. It's also a nice change from heavy, pastry laden appetizers.
cdn_cook 5y agoI added a few things to the cabbage mix - a dash of soy sauce and a bit of sesame oil instead of olive oil - and these were a huge hit! A great idea for a light finger food.
smiles3983 6y agoIv'e had summer rolls before and this wasn't very good. I give it credit for being vegetarian and focusing on the cabbage, but the sauce was probably the worst part of it. I may have made it wrong, but it had a strong flavor of something that didnt taste right. Maybe include instructions on how to make the sauce. do we just mix together, or do we need to heat it, let it sit in the fridge for a while? And most sauces ive had include hoisen sauce.
