Fresh Nutritious Spring Rolls!

After my Instagram post about these a few months ago, everyone wants to know how to make them! Spring Rolls are a great way to get your veggies in! Not only do they taste great, they look amazing

What you will need:

Rice paper- you can buy some in the ethnic section of most grocery stores

2 cooked chicken breast

1 avacado

1 red pepper

1 whole cucumber

1 red onion

Cilantro

Dip of your choice – I like Thai chilli or peanut sauce!

Step 1:

Finely slice all the ingredients! The thinner you can get them the easier it will be to roll the rice paper. This includes the chicken!

Step 2:

Fill a large bowl with warm water. Place the rice wrap in the bowl for 5-10 seconds until rice paper is soft. Carefully take it out of the bowl and set it on a smooth surface.

Step 3:

Add a propionate amount of each ingredient to one end of the rice paper. Cilantro is the only one you may want to scale back on as some people find it to be an overpowering flavour. It may take you a few tries to get the right amount of filler, but less is more! Overfilling will make it look sloppy and loose.

Step 4:

Here is the tricky part! Rolling the rice paper can be frustrating if you don’t know how to do it. Follow the infographic below and you will do just fine!
