Cooking with StyleGamblers - Healthy spring rolls

Spring Rolls

Nutritious, light and fresh at the same time, that's why I love spring rolls. No unhealthy frying makes them a perfect replacement for salad or just a healthy snack.
Spring is finally kicking off and I tend to pick lighter options for my lunch more often. Spring rolls are one of them, not only because they are healthy, but they are delicious too. Usually I change the filling, depending of the contents of my fridge. Preparation is simplier than it sounds, so don't discourage yourself.


INGREDIENTS:
10 sheets of round rice paper
30 cooked prawns
small packet of vermicelli noodles
small lettuce
10 broccoli stalks
fresh mint leaves
for peanut sauce:
1 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 garlic clove
pinch of  hot pepper
1 tbsp coconut oil

DIRECTIONS:

 1. Cook vermicelli noodles as directed on package
2. Steam broccoli for 3 mins and pour cold water over them to keep it crunchy, drain
3. In a small pan, stir all peanut sauce ingredients, keep it on low heat until combined and smooth
4. Add prawns to the sauce and cook for another 2 mins
5. Place soaked rice paper on a board and fill it with lettuce, broccoli, noodles, prawns and mint leaves
6. Roll them up like croquettes, serve with spicy sauce or on it's own

Voila!
