Vegetable Spring Rolls

Yield: 8-10 Spring Rolls
Time: 30-40 Minutes

  • 1 Packet Rice Paper (Spring Roll Wraps)
  • 8 each Shiitake mushrooms – Remove stems
  • 8 leaves Butter Lettuce – Rinsed, Rib Removed
  • ½ each Red Bell Pepper – Julienne
  • ½ each Yellow Bell Pepper – Julienne
  • ½ cup Red Cabbage – Julienne
  • 15 each Sugar Snap Peas – Julienne
  • 1 Carrot – Peeled – Julienne
  • ¼ Cucumber – Removed seeds, Peel if preferred – Julienne

 

Directions – Vegetables 

Julienne – Cutting an Item into thin uniformed strips – Match Stick in size – ¼“ wide x ¼” thick x 2 ½ “ long

On a clean Prep area, have your Vegetables that you are preparing near your station.

  1. When Prepping the Vegetables, Cut each one into similar sized pieces- we recommend “Julienne Cut” (Definition above)
  2. Place each Spring Vegetable in its own bowl or container.
  3. Clean off Cutting board, organize your station.
  4. Fill a 12 inch diameter bowl with cold water
  5. Place 1 Rice Paper Wrapper in the water to soften (about 3 minutes)
  6. In your Medium Size bowl, place a small handful of each Julienned Vegetable inside.
  7. With a Large Spoon, stir your Marinade – Spoon just enough Marinade on top of your Vegetables to lightly coat them.  (too much marinade will over-hydrate the wrapper and cause it to tear)
  8. Toss to evenly coat the vegetables – It should look like a vibrant rainbow of color.
  9. Gently remove the Wrapper with 2 hands, grabbing just the edge of it, and hold over bowl of water to allow excess of water to drip back into the bowl.
  10. Once removed from water, add in a new Rice Paper Wrapper, to hydrate while you prepare the Spring Roll.
  11. In the middle of the rice paper, Place Butter Lettuce down first, Green side down. This will act as a barrier between the tossed vegetables and the rice paper. It also holds all the Vegetables together.
  12. Toss your Marinated Vegetables again.  Place a small handful of vegetables on top of the butter lettuce.  Just enough to cover the butter lettuce.

The Fold-Roll-Up

  • Grab the edge of the rice paper closest to you, stretch and fold over the Vegetables and butter lettuce. Tuck under the butter lettuce if possible.
  • Fold in your Left and Right Side of the Rice paper, Stretch it and make it tight around the vegetables.
  • Roll it up.
  • Place Fold side up to air dry
  • Continue the process, making more Spring rolls with the marinated vegetables.
  • Once Semi Dry, Use a Sharp Knife to Cut in half, Place on a serving platter. Enjoy
