Confession: I’m obsessed with peanut sauce. In fact, for years whenever I went to a Thai or Vietnamese restaurant, I would order salad rolls just so I could have the peanut sauce. Friends and family would just roll their eyes and begin to laugh once we sat down, because they already knew what I was about to order. At that time, the spring rolls were just a vehicle for me to enjoy the lovely, creamy sauce. However, over the years I have realized that the crisp, light and crunchy spring rolls are a healthy meal all on their own These are still my absolute favorite thing to order at a restaurant, and I think adding sunshine burger within is a great way to boost this meal to the next level.
1 package Garden Herb Sunshine Burgers, prepare per package instructions, then each burger cut into 5 slices.
1 package Thai Kitchen thin rice noodles, cooked per package instructions, rinsed with cold water, and strained.
1 package Blue Dragon spring roll wrappers.
1 large carrot, julienned.
1 large cucumber, julienned.
1 avocado, peeled and thinly sliced .
1 bunch cilantro.
1 bunch basil.
Moisten the spring roll wrappers per package instructions and then place on a flat dry surface. Add about a golf –ball sized hand full of cooked noodles to the middle of the wrapper and distribute on the wrapper horizontally. Add 2 pieces of cucumber, 1 carrot, 1 piece of sunshine burger, and 2 pieces of avocado around and on top of the noodles. Top these fillings with 1 leaf of basil and a few leaves of cilantro. Then, very carefully, tuck in the left and right side of the wrapper over the fillings. In a single motion, carefully lift the bottom end of the wrapper so it covers the filling then roll over the fillings to create a (mostly) neat spring roll.
To make the peanut sauce, place all ingredients in a bowl then whisk or stir vigorously until combined. Dip or spoon sauce onto the spring roll and enjoy!
This recipe makes about 12-15 spring rolls and can be a great meal for a dinner party with friends. Just set out all of the prepared ingredients and let your company prepare their wrapper, choose their ingredients, and roll their own spring rolls!
