Are you tired of the same old dinner ideas? Why not try something fun and new! This is a great recipe to get the whole family involved and delight the taste buds with some introductory ethnic flavors.
Place the brown rice vermicelli noodles in warm water and let sit for 15 minutes, meanwhile slice the carrots and cucumber to roughly matchstick size, and/or any other vegetables you’d like to add. Cut open and remove avocado seed and slice so that you can scoop out the pieces in wedges. Cut romaine leaves width wise, and slice lemon in half. Put vermicelli noodles in boiling water for 2 minutes, drain and set aside. Get a large bowl or wide shallow dish with warm to hot water for your spring roll wrappers. Place a wrapper in water for about 15 seconds until it becomes pliable and sticky…place on a plate that is covered with a cloth to soak up some of the wetness. Now simply fill your wrappers with the sliced and diced filling, squeeze some lemon on top, sprinkle salt and pepper and roll! Repeat until you have used all of your wrappers or fillings.
1 Tbsp Peanut Butter
1 ½ Tbsp Brown Rice South River Miso
1 Tsp Olive Oil
½ tsp Franks Finest Chili Garlic Salt
Enough water for your desired consistency
Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir. Serve as a dip or drizzle on top of your Thai Spring Rolls for a delicious light lunch or dinner.
This is a really fun meal to make with the family. Using leftovers as a filling for the wrap added with some fresh vegetables is a great way to save food from going to waste and provide a fun and new meal idea! Enjoy family time by working together to make the spring rolls, having different stations, one in charge of noodles, one in charge of filling the wrapper with cucumber and carrots, etc… The kids will love helping you out and better yet the food will taste that much better to them since they helped make it!
