After spending the morning at the gym, and the afternoon at the pool, I came home to make spring rolls for dinner!

The first go-around with the rice paper was a major fail. The directions said to soak the rice paper wrappers TOGETHER to in boiling water for 15 minutes. Overkill. I checked on the soaking papers after about 5 minutes and they had already turned into a bowl of mush. So, I threw those out, and decided to soak the next batch individually in warm water. After about 30 seconds – they were the perfect texture to work with…

Zucchini, carrots, avocado, and basil



Not perfect, but they stayed together, and they were scrumptious!

Served with a peanut dipping sauce:

  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbs. soy sauce
  • Juice of one lime
  • A few splashes of water

Make these! The whole process only took about 20 minutes (and that includes the silly rice paper catastrophe). So summery and yummery. Yes, yummery.
