Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

SERVES: 12 rolls

EQUIPMENT: small food processor (or mini-blender), large bowl


Peanut Sauce (makes a large ½ cup)

4 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water, or more to taste
½ tablespoon maple syrup (or 1 small soft pitted date)
Optional: small knob of fresh ginger

Spring Rolls

Rice paper
1 cup cooked quinoa
1 large cucumber, julienned
1 large carrot, peeled and julienned
1 small red bell pepper, julienned
1 large handful red cabbage, shredded
1 large ripe avocado, pitted and sliced
1 large ripe mango, seeded and julienned (optional - or pear, persimmon…)
1 large handful fresh herbs: cilantro, mint, basil, oregano…


Peanut Sauce

Put the peanut butter, tamari, lemon juice, water, maple syrup and ginger in a small food processor fitted with an S-blade, or a mini-blender. Blend until smooth.

Spring Rolls

1. Dip a sheet of rice paper in lukewarm water for a few seconds, until pliable but not too soft.
2. Top the rice paper with quinoa, cucumber, carrot, bell pepper, red cabbage, avocado, mango and herbs of your choice.
3. Fold up the bottom and top border of the rice paper, then fold the sides to form a tight cylinder.
4. Repeat with the remaining sheets of rice paper.
5. Serve with peanut sauce on the side.


• For a tasty alternative, replace the peanut butter with almond butter, tahini, pumpkin seed butter…
• It’s best to serve these rice paper wraps as fresh as possible. Don’t put them in the fridge, as the rice paper will harden. Store them in a cool, dark place between a clean, damp dish towel if you prepare them in advance. For variation, replace the rice paper with corn tortillas, Swiss chard leaves, romaine lettuce…
• You could use this peanut sauce in other recipes too, like Pad Thai, stir-fry rice noodles, or as a snack with some raw veggies and crackers.
