Avocado Veggie Rainbow Rolls & Tangy Tahini Dipping Sauce

Ingredients

Serves 2
2 servings Serves

Instructions

Step 1

Make the sauce by putting all the sauce ingredients into a blender and give it a few whizzes to thoroughly combine. Pour into dipping bowls. Set aside. The recipe makes about 1/2 cup of sauce, which is plenty. Even with my aggressive dunking there is normally leftover for salad on another day.

Step 2

Prepare (wash, trim) avocado and all the veggies you want to use in your rolls. Cut things small and somewhat long in shape, or grate it. It makes rolling a lot easier. Very thin & flexible items like the dark green perilla leaves pictured (or kale for example) roll easily if you trim off the spine.

Step 3

In terms of the rice paper, don't confuse them with "spring roll" wrappers, even though some people call these types of rolls "rainbow spring rolls". They are NOT the same thing! The ingredients should be rice, salt & water. They are hard & brittle and require a quick soak in warm water before using

Step 4

First soak one rice paper in warm water. I like heated kettle water say, the temperature of a warm shower. Soak for ~25-30 sec. Keep feeling it. It should be pliable but not soggy - it softens a bit more as you pile on the fillings. I like to start with soft leaves & avo, and continue from there.

Step 5

Load it on! You'll figure out quickly what is too little (limp looking rolls) and what is too much (the rice paper rips). Get creative with your fillings..besides veggies, tofu & cooked vermicelli noodles are terrific too!
