Fresh Spring Rolls with Mango Dipping Sauce
Ingredients to feed 2 people
– 10 rice paper rolls
(For the Dipping Sauce)
– 1 mango
– 1 avocado
– 1/2 small jalapeño pepper
(For the Fillings)
– 1 large carrot
– 1 red pepper
– 1 zucchini
– spinach leaves
To make the Dipping sauce:
Peel the mango and avocado (remove their stones) and place the flesh into a food processor along with the de-seeded jalapeño pepper. Blend until smooth…pour into a bowl for dipping.
To make the Filling:
Peel the carrots and then chop the carrots, zucchini and pepper into thin julienned strips. I also cut thin strips of mango and included a strip of mango in each roll.
To make the Rolls:
Place one sheet at a time of rice paper into a bowl of warm water for a few seconds (until softened). Then place rice paper on a plate (flattened) and place a spinach leaf or two in the middle, drizzle a teaspoon of the mango mixture onto the spinach and top with the veggie strips. Fold the top and bottom of the rice paper over then roll tightly from the side. Dip your roll in the mango sauce and enjoy!
Oli doesn’t really like this kind of stuff, so we made him gluten-free rice pasta mac n cheese with strawberries and yogurt!! Then we had to eat the leftover mac n cheese because there was just too much for one little boy ;)! Then of course we had to add sriracha sauce (which is good on everything) and a glass of mango/strawberry wine 🙂
Personally I do not like the texture of rice paper…it’s gummy and chewy and I’m just not fond of that texture…although it tastes good. So Jenny came up with sautéing the entire finished roll in a little coconut oil…so I did that and it was yummy!! I sautéed my 4 rolls in about a teaspoon of coconut oil until they were crispy brown on the outside, which also stir fry – cooked the veggies inside – and they were sooo yummy that way!! Your choice, but it is an option if you don’t like the texture of rice paper!
