summer spring rolls
Summer spring rolls on the other hand, delicate and fresh, make the perfect summer lunch.
I bought some of the rice paper in Korea town a couple of weeks ago and have been dying to use them ever since. My only problem was I didn't know what to stuff them with. Glass noodles? Shrimp? Mango salad?
Walking home from the yoga studio I decided to stop in the grocery store and pick up some sprouts for my rolls. Instead, a big 99 cent bag of coleslaw called out my name.
I thought about buying some shrimp, but I've eaten enough seafood to build an aquarium in my stomach in the past few days.
Back at home I mixed the coleslaw with parsley, green onions, chili flakes, rice vinegar, ginger powder and salt.
Next I prepared the the rice paper. The paper is unbelievably easy to prepare, and only needs to be soaked with a towel for a minute before it is pliable and ready to use.
With the paper ready, I filled each one with a mixture of the coleslaw salad, and rolled them up tightly.
I had no sauce for the rolls, so I mixed up a thick miso dipping sauce out of miso pase, rice vinegar, oil and red wine vinegar, and lunch was ready.
The result was satisfying, nourishing and as delicious as a beautiful summer day
