HOT WEATHER COOKING: FRESH SPRING ROLLS
The weather (per usual) has been up and down for most of spring and into early summer. One day its 70 and the next it's 55 and freezing. But when we do get those summery days everyone sheds a few layers, straps on their summer sandals and spends the day in the sun.
I always struggle with what to make on those toasty hot days. One of my favorite things to whip up, that requires no heat at all, is fresh spring rolls. Most of the work is in prepping the ingredients for the inside but once you have that ready, you are ready to roll (see what I did there) I like to put in tofu, avocado, noodles, mint or basil and, if I am feeling fancy, mango. Learning how to roll them takes a little practice but if you have seen a burrito rolled enough times you probably are better prepared than you think you are.
There's no recipe for this one since it's pretty much explained by the GIF below. All you have to do is soak the outer wrapper for 30 secs or so in hot water and lay it on a flat surface, fill it with your ingredients and roll it up. It really couldn't get much easier. I also recommend buying some peanut sauce to dip it in (because we all know that these rolls are just a vehicle for the peanut sauce)
