Summer Rolls

We made these Summer Rolls at a cooking class using fresh vegetables from the local farms.

 The Summer Rolls were very easy to make and for those that would like more "protein", adding shrimp or chicken is would be perfect.

These were SEW easy to make that we made these for New Years Eve!

Summer Rolls
Rice Papers
½ c Soy
1 Tbsp Sesame oil
1 Tbsp Cilantro
2 cloves garlic, minced, divided
3 Tbsp lime juice
1 red Thai Chili, seeded & minced
1 daikon radish
1 English cucumber
1 red Bell pepper
1 carrot
1 avocado
1 can sliced water chestnuts
2 Tbsp ginger, minced
4 Tbsp Cilantro
Sesame Seeds
Wasabi, mixed thin

Julienne all vegetables, place in bowl & toss with 1 clove garlic, 1 Tbsp sauce, heavy pinch sesame seeds.

Soften rice papers in hot water 15-30 seconds. 

Lay rice paper down, brush with sauce, add wasabi, vegetables. Roll up burrito style.

Dip in sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Found another version with brown rice and using Nori sheets. When using Nori sheets, be sure the surface and hands are DRY! Nori does not perform with wet surfaces and hands.

Be creative and add an assortment of vegetables.

12 oz Frozen peas, thawed & drained
