If I had to choose one food group to live on forever, I think Asian cuisine would win the battle. In an attempt to eat out less, I’ve been trying to make some of my classic favorite dishes at home (hello, talking about you, skinny teriyaki ‘fried’ rice), and these Asian inspired veggie spring rolls with a homemade sweet + spicy peanut sauce were my most recent battle.

I’m not sure why, but making my own spring rolls always seemed extremely intimidating. I’m not going to lie, the first time trying to figure out the rice paper was a total flop, but utilizing a non-stick wood serving tray as my rolling table actually ended up being my best friend. After I got the rolling technique down, making my own was a piece of cake. I can’t wait to continue to play around with various flavor combos and come up with more spring roll recipes! This girl = no longer intimidated. πŸ˜‰

Ps- if you have not tried PB2 yet, you need to jump on the train! It is so good and a fraction of the calories / no oils / 85% less fat!
