Summer Rolls

Summer rolls or rice paper rolls are an amazing summer dish. Healthy, light and very easy to make! And I will show you how to make them. 

You remember that I went on a juice cleanse two weeks ago? After a juice cleanse you should start eating light meals like salads, soups, quinoa, veggies. And summer rolls are perfect! I don't like to spend money on pre-made summer rolls, because most of them are packed with A LOT lettuce/rice noodles and just a few other veggies like avocado, red cabbage and sprouts. They are mostly too expensive for what you I make them myself. 

x  Have all your veggies ready! Slice them into long strips before you start rolling. 

x  I love to pack the rolls with fresh herbs! Cilantro is amazing! 

x  Crunch crunchhhhh! Carrots or cucumber give your summer rolls the right crunch. 

x  My favorite fillings: mango, cilantro, avocado, fried smoked tofu, carrots, cucumber & bell pepper. 


Look at the pictures above - I always used different kinds of fillings and dipping sauces. There are so many options! You really can't go wrong ;)

So you'll need: 

rice paper wrappers
veggies of choice, cilantro, mint, lettuce, rice noodles, tofu,..
dipping sauce (scroll down for my favorite recipes!)


1. Dip one of the rice papers in a large bowl of warm water to soften. 

2. Drain rice paper on a dish towel. 

3. Place your filling on 1/3 of the rice paper wrapper. Please don't over-stuff the first rolls looked terrible - it takes a little practice ;). Roll everything up tightly. Fold in the sides of the rice paper roll and then start rolling and use your hands to tuck the filling in as you go. 

4. Cut summer roll in half and serve with your favorite dip!

Tahina Sauce
Mix raw tahina with water, salt, cilantro, pepper, lime juice and a splash of soy sauce.

Peanut Dip
Blend smooth peanut butter with cayenne pepper, soy sauce and a bit of water. 

Avocado Tahina
Blend 1 avocado with tahina, jalapeno and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
