I finally didn’t eat candy. Because times have changed. There is no candy in sale.
But I found my favorite nature’s candy: clementines!
It it this time of the year: big boxes of juicy clementines at 99 cents. I usually finish the whole box in 4-5 days!
Coming home from the grocery store, I made dinner (part of): delicious spring rolls. With a photo tutorial :).
First, prepare all your ingredients.
Lay a damp clean kitchen towel on your counter/table and fill a bowl with warm water.
Dip a rice paper in the water for 5 seconds and place it on the damp towel.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
And place other ingredients in the middle of the rice paper.
Fold the top and bottom of the rice paper.
Fold one side and roll.
Until you have a nice looking spring roll!
Serve with your favorite dip :-).
- 16 small rice papers
- Sesame seeds
- 16 mint leafs
- 2 small-medium carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks
- 2/3 English cucumber, peeled, seeds removed and cut into matchsticks
- 1 big or 2 regular pear(s), peeled, core removed, cut into matchsticks and tossed with 1 1/2 tsp lime juice (I used 1 very big Rocha pear)
- Sprouts (I used fenugreek sprouts)
Directions: Place a damp clean kitchen towel on your table or counter and fill a bowl with warm water. Dip a rice paper in the water for 5 seconds and place on the towel. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, place a mint leaf, as well as carrot, cucumber and pear matchsticks (I used approximately 10 carrot, 6 cucumber & 10 pear matchsticks for each roll) Add sprouts and roll (see pictures above). Repeat until you are out of ingredients. Serve with your favorite dip.
Makes 16 spring rolls
And if you don’t have any tasty dip, don’t worry.
You can always do this:
It is basically the same as peanut butter sauce, without making any sauce ;-). Yummy.
