Spring Roll Ingredients:
- 2 ounces dried rice sticks or vermicelli
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- 1 bunch scallions
- 1 cup Spicy Garlic OlyKraut
- 1 carrot
- 1 cucumber
- pinch of red pepper flakes
- lettuce leaves
- large round rice paper wrappers
- meat or tofu (optional)
Sesame Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 parts sesame oil
- few drops of water
- spicy chili paste
- toasted sesame seeds
Peanut Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
- 2 tbsp Spicy Garlic OlyKraut (add more for more kick)
- 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
- 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
- water as desired for consistency
Directions: Break up the rice noodles and put them in a pot of boiling water. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. They should be tender, but still firm. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water. Place them in a bowl and toss with the sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and chopped scallions.
Cut the carrot and cucumber into thin strips and tear lettuce into medium sized pieces.
Whisk ingredients in a bowl for Sesame Dipping Sauce. For best results mix Peanut Dipping Sauce ingredients in a blender.
To assemble: Fill a plate or a shallow pan with hot water. Submerge a rice wrapper for 30 seconds, then remove, letting the excess water drip off. Lay it on your work surface. Place some lettuce just below the center of the wrapper. Top with the Spicy Garlic OlyKraut, noodles, carrots, and cucumber. Be careful not to over stuff. Fold the bottom edge of the wrapper up over the filling, then fold in the sides. Roll it up completely and seal by moistening the edge. Place the finished rolls seam-side down on a large plate or tray and cover them up with a lightly dampened towel until ready to serve. Can be stored in the fridge for a day if wrapped in wax cloth or plastic wrap to keep from drying out.
