Vegan Spring Rolls

by Sarah Harari January 25, 2018

Spring rolls may be the very answer to a quick and clean meal.  The finished product includes the carbs, protein, and veggies needed to satisfy your hungry tummy.  Although it might seem intimidating at first, it is honestly simple to make- although it can take some practice!  It is also a great meal you can grab with you on the go or make-ahead-  Have fun experimenting!  We find that crunchy vegetable or filling work best.

Rice wraps work well for fresh vegetables and for pre-cooked stuffing.  They do not fry well.  They are also gluten free and contain tapioca and rice starch.
