Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 oz dry black bean spaghetti or buckwheat soba noodles cooked according to package. Drained and reserved.
  • ½ cup cilantro, loosely packed and roughly chopped
  • ½ cup scallions, thinly sliced
  • 10 basil leaves, chiffonade or minced if necessary
  • 20 mint leaves, chiffonade or minced if necessary
  • ½ cup purple or regular carrot, grated
  • ½ cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced, about 2″ long
  • ½ orange bell pepper, thinly sliced, about 2″ long
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced, about 2″ long
  • 1 firm avocado, halved and pit removed
  • 1 package spring roll wrappers

Instructions

Toss first 9 ingredients together and set aside.

Find an undamaged sheet of rice paper and hold it under warm water for about 10 seconds or until the sheet is pliable. By holding it in your hand, you will be able to feel when it gets to the right consistency and it is easier to move to a plate to fill.

Place the sheet onto a wooden cutting board or large ceramic plate. Place about one ounce of filling onto the rice paper, off-center, closest to you. Using a spoon, scoop out a ¼-inch thick wedge of avocado and set it onto the filling.

Pull the bottom of the rice paper over the top of the filling then fold both sides over toward the center (like a burrito). Gently pulling toward you, roll the spring roll up toward the top.

Cut spring rolls in half and serve with dipping sauce.

    Wow. Thanks for the tips about the rice paper. I never seem to get them right so I’m afraid to buy them. Now I know….

    Love fresh rolls – I load mine up with cilantro and peanuts because I love those, but now I want to try your recipe.

    Great job ! You make rolling seem like a piece of cake. Spring rolls are one of my fav and a great way to get extra veggies in. Good Luck

    I love fresh spring rolls and a video is the perfect way to demystify how to make them. Avocados sounds like a great filling, something I’ve never tried before!

  4. Vegolicious

    Beautiful looking spring rolls and great video.

    I’d love for you to submit some of your beautiful photos, and a link to your posts, to my vegetarian food photo gallery showcasing the best vegetarian/vegan dishes on the web.

    So cool to see you in action, Jessica! This is a great video, and a great recipe from a beautiful and talented cook-slash-baker! 😉 Keep up the great work.

  6. kristin @ delishliving

    Your video is fantastic. The recipe is perfect (I will definitely be trying these) and you are a total natural. I also think you have a nice voice to listen to!!! Well done 🙂

    what a fabulous, healthy and refreshing recipe. You explained it wonderfully: calm and poised…can’t wait to make it!

  8. Lindsey @ Hot Polka Dot

    Awesome video my friend! I must admit I have a serious case of appliance envy right now. Those spring rolls are so colourful and fresh. That sauce looks yummy too! Good luck to you!

  9. Becky

    Great video!! I’ve never tried making spring rolls myself but you make it look so easy! This peanut sauce loving girl would totally give that dipping sauce a try too : )

  10. Heather

    I have to say–spring rolls scare the crap out of me (to make, not in general), but this video makes it look so easy! Plus, you have a very calming effect. 🙂 Great job!

  11. Cristina, from Buenos Aires to Paris

    I just loved how calm and poised you are in the video, the recipe and your charm!
    Well done! Good luck!

    Wonderful blog. Wonderful post. Love the spring roll recipe!
    I may use this for appetizers on Thanksgiving.

    Great job on the video. I like how you pace yourself when you speak and you present in an easy fashion. You’re a natural in front of the camera.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Thank you so much for showing us the wheel technique! I tried once to make these rolls and they just turned so sticky and gummy and thick. Not good at all. I was so disappointed. I was sure that the restaurants had a special kind of wrapper or something. Now I want to try again.

    Great job on the video and I think perfect recipe choice. I do not think the fact that you used your own camera and expertise will be a factor to consider for judges to eliminate you at all.

    I hope that you make it to the last round and for sure I will be voting for you tomorrow. Love your recipes. Good luck!

    PS: These are right up my alley so will be making these soon, thanks for sharing 🙂

    So colourful, fresh and delicious. Loved your recipe and video. You are a natural. Relaxed, pleasant and genuine. Congratulations!

  16. Angela (Oh She Glows)

    Excellent job on the video!

    I had a bad experience with spring rolls before but this makes me want to try it again…

  17. Erin @ One Particular Kitchen

    LOVE the video! You did such a great job — I’ve never made those but I totally feel like I could after watching you. Can’t wait to vote for you tomorrow! 🙂
