My earliest memory of eating summer rolls was in the mall food court in my home town. I was always in search of something healthy I could eat while my friends were getting burgers and fries. These summer rolls fit the bill for me. Filling and low calorie they were probably the “healthiest” thing available.
I’m still nostalgic for the herbaceous bright asian flavours. These are veggie heavy without the sugary dipping sauce and rice noodles. My version appeals to my new paleo lifestyle. I’m using rice paper wraps here because a little bit of rice agrees with my system. The rolls would also work with collard greens or butter lettuce.
The key to making these easy to roll is spiralizing the veggies instead of slicing them into matchsticks. The noodle shapes won’t poke out of your rolls causing tears while you’re rolling.
