Summer rolls are so amazingly delicious and surprisingly easy to make. Don’t worry about the wrappers. They are really easy to handle once you know the tricks. You can put whatever you want into them but I feel like there are a couple of requirements : 1.) herbs – mint and cilantro especially (mint and basil would be great too!) 2.) cucumber 3.) avocado – beyond that any vegetables, tofu or tempeh or seitan or or or… see you can wrap anything up in there.
Also the sauce is awesome and 1 WW point for the whole recipe!
Easy Peanut Sauce
2 Tablespoons PB2 Powdered Peanut butter 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon sriracha
1 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce (I use low sodium)
1 Tablespoon water
Mix everything together and dip everything into it!!
For the rolls –
Baked Tofu or Tempeh (I like Sriracha Baked Tofu) Avocado Herbs: mint, cilantro, basil, etcVeggies: cucumber, bell pepper, onions, shredded broccoil, carrots, cabbage, kale, spinach, etc!!
Rice Paper Wrappers (These are 3 wrappers for 2 WW points!)
Now this is what you’ve been doing wrong with rice paper wrappers – you do NOT soak them in water. Just give them a quick rinse under running water to make sure they are completely moistened and place them on a plate or wherever you are assembling your rolls. They will still be hard but trust me. Put all of your ingredients on your paper and by the time you’ve got that done it will be perfectly flexible but not soggy!! It’s a game changer, seriously. If you over stuff them they will probably still split though so be careful. For 3 rolls I used 1/4 avocado, 3 oz baked tofu and a bunch of veggies. Comes out to 2 points per roll with that combination of ingredients.
Now go make some!! (I’ve got all of my veggies cut up now ready for tomorrow because I’m pretty sure this is going to be my new daily quick lunch!!!!)
