Veggie-packed, adaptable, and infinitely satisfying, these fresh Spring Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce make for a delightful side dish or can be beefed up with additional protein for a satiating main.
1. For the sauce: Whisk all the ingredients together. Taste and adjust seasoning and heat as desired. Sauce will thicken as it rests. Store leftovers in the fridge.
2. Soften rice noodles in boiling hot water for 5 minutes. Drain and reserve.
3. Cut pre-cooked (peeled and deveined) extra-large shrimp in half lengthwise. Pat dry with paper towels and keep refrigerated until needed.
4. Rinse and pat dry herbs and greens (a salad spinner makes quick work of this). Prep vegetables by chopping into matchsticks.
5. Set up a rice paper dipping station by gathering a large bowl of warm water and a large wooden cutting board. Dip each round into warm water for 3 to 5 seconds. Working one roll at a time, place rice paper on a wooden board and smooth using clean hands.
6. Starting with a layer of lettuce, stack mung bean sprouts, herbs, and prepped vegetables into the center, leaving a ½-inch border. Add a small layer of noodles and tofu. Top your stack with 3 pieces of shrimp (cut side down).
7. Begin rolling the rice paper as you tighten and tuck the contents into a compact cigar shape. As you’re rolling the shrimp, fold in the sides of the rice paper and complete the final roll, sealing the end over the shrimp.
8. Best served immediately with Peanut Dipping Sauce.
Fresh spring rolls do not refrigerate well. Best to keep the components prepped and separated until ready to be rolled.
