There is no better way to up your intake of vegetables than combining your favorite vegetables and making a delicious spring roll. The best thing about spring rolls is that they are so easy to make. You will love preparing these for road trips, picnics and even for parties. They are also a great alternative to fried spring rolls.
I chose avocados quite simply because I did not want them to get spoilt..lol. But in all seriousness go ahead and become friends with avocado, they have one of the highest amino acid contents of all fruit, building protein in the body. Also please do not avoid them completely because you think they are simply fat. The raw plant fat in avocado is digested very efficiently and is extremely nutrient dense per calories. In other words avocados are a great beauty food.
They are also full of compounds that nourish skin health and maintain youthful sin tone. They are also rich in the skin smoothing vitamins: A, C E and K They have antioxidant enzymes and amino acid to help protect the skin from environmental damage.
So here we go:
3 spring roll sheets
1 cup shredded zucchini or spiralized zuchinni
1 red bell pepper
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 tsp. white sesame seeds
1 tsp. black sesame seeds
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp cayenne
salt for tasting
- Cut the celery, carrots, red bell pepper length wise into long strips and set aside. Shred the zucchini or spiralize the zucchini and also set aside.
- Next take the avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, paprika, cayenne, lemon and salt. Blend them altogether, adding water if necessary to make it smooth.
- Next take some warm water and place it in a large bowl. Take one spring roll, dip it in water for 30 secs. Place the spring roll on a flat surface and place a small handful of the shredded and cut up vegetables. Roll the spring roll over the vegetables making sure to tuck in the sides and place aside. Repeat the process with as many spring rolls as you would like to make until you have enough.
- Take the sesame seeds and sprinkle on top of the spring rolls.
