Vegetable Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce
Serves:4-6• Total Time:20 minutes • FODMAP rating: low to medium

This traditional Vietnamese dish is known as gỏi cuốn or nem cuốn, salad roll, summer roll, fresh spring roll, spring roll, rice paper roll. It can be customized to contain your favorite vegetables and great for group meals that include omnivores (shrimp and pork are traditional components). For a super quick peanut sauce use a 1:2 ratio of hoisin sauce and peanut butter and sesame oil or water to soften and mix, otherwise the peanut sauce below will be richer and have a more diverse profile of antioxidants.

Spring Rolls
1 green onion
¼ cup cilantro
1 bell pepper, preferably red
½ purple cabbage
sprouts, any variety
1 avocado
rice noodles
1 package of rice paper wrappers
fresh chives, optional

2 tablespoons maple syrup
½ teaspoon minced garlic

3.Have a large bowl or baking dish filled with water to submerge your rice paper wrapper in water.
4.Place your wrapper, which will be initially stiff, on a plate and add in a bit of each ingredient. As you do this, the rice paper will gradually soften.
5.Fold both end in and roll into a roll.

Peanut Sauce
