I love eating raw vegetables! First it does save you time but is also leaves everything super crunchy and juicy. This weekend that was all I craved! So I made some Raw Vegan Summer Rolls and they came out so yum! And because I love a good dip I made a quick Peanut Dip I’ll share with you today!
– Rice paper (10 pieces)
– red cabbage For the dip:
– carrots 1-2 – 4 tablespoons peanut butter
– radishes – 4 tablespoons coconut milk
– cucumber – 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
– red bell pepper – 1 tablespoon soy sauce
– avocado – Sriracha (optional)
What to do:
First I like to pickle the carrots and the red cabbage but that is totally optional. You can just put the veggies in as they are but I like to give them a twist. To pickle them just thinly cut them into little sticks, put them in a bowl and add 1/4 cup white wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1/4-1/2 cup of water, depending how strong you want the veggies to be pickled, 2 tablespoons of salt and 1-2 cloves of garlic.
Set the bowl with your pickled veggies aside. Then start cutting all the other vegetables into a similar shape. If you want to you could add rice noodles but I’m just looking for some crunchy juicy vegetables here. You can add whatever you like and enjoy, and for a non-vegan option you could add cooked chicken or shrimps. Set all aside.
Now we’re preparing the Peanut Dip! Just mix all the ingredients together until it’s all blended together nicely. If you like it more spicy like me you can also add some Sriracha, really delicious as well! Cumin also can give this a nice twist!
Put the rice paper in some cold water so it gets softer and easier to work with. Grab a towel and wet it slightly and place it on your table. When the rice paper is softend enough, place two pieces of is overlapping on the towel. Put your precut and pickled veggies in and fold the rice paper nice and tight.
And that is actually all! You have a delicious meal or snack, have a tasty dip to it and can eat without regrets! Full of vitamins and this really fills you up nice and healthy. Of course you could try out any other dips or fillings for this and that is something I really enjoy about summer rolls. They are so versatile and there are so many dips out there that fit this dish well! So what do you love your summer rolls with? What veggies do you roll in?
Peace out xo
