Last night the whole family got in the kitchen together to make Spring Rolls. We prepped all of the ingredients and then made an assembly line passing plates along to fill up the rolls. Everyone had a hand in the action and it was a fun night! Tasty too!

Spring Rolls 

1 pkg. of Spring rolls skins

1 cucumber

1 carrot

2 scallions

2 avocados prepared into slices

1 pkg. of rice noodles

handfull of chopped peanuts

1/2 cup of chopped cilantro

Your favorite dipping sauce

Cook your rice noodles following the pkg. instructions, drain and set to the side. Slice all of your vegetables into thin ribbon slices using a vegetable peeler (great job for the kiddos!). When you have all of your ingredients ready, fill a shallow dish with hot water and place spring rolls skins in one at a time until they are soft and flexible. Lay the skin out onto a plate and fill with a little of each of the prepared food. Then carefully roll it up and tuck in the ends. You will get the hang of it as you go! Before you know it, you will have a plater full of spring rolls. Before serving I sprinkled the rolls with chopped peanuts and cilantro. We also made a quick dipping sauce using 1/4 cup of hoisin sauce and 1/4 cup of tamari, you can make this or use your favorite asian sauce. This recipe really makes for a fun activity! Plan it for the whole family or a date night at home!
