What’s my favourite summer season meals? Something transportable as I really feel like I’m all the time on the transfer! These spring rolls are full of cooked inexperienced beans, herby noodles, and to carry all of it collectively, fried egg. It’s an ideal on-the-go meal for me!
Loaded up with Greens
I feel there’s no higher factor than having a hand-held choice to eat a scrumptious array of greens. It’s straightforward to load them up with any of the seasonal greens. Throughout the summer season, you might additionally add cucumbers, several types of peppers, greens, cabbage, or eggplant.
Throughout the cooler months, this might additionally work nicely with carrots, candy potatoes, spinach, chard, and/or kale.
Make it a meal: Pete and Gerry’s Natural Eggs
Past the scrumptious array of greens, these spring rolls are additionally nice as a meal with assist from Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs. One of many causes I like utilizing these eggs is as a result of I do know they arrive from small household farms which can be devoted to humanely raising chickens and guaranteeing care of the land for future generations.
In the case of spring rolls in the summertime, basil is the plain selection. Nevertheless, it’s not the one choice. A number of different methods to jazz up the rice noodles embody cilantro, mint, dill, or parsley. A few of these choices are higher for the autumn/winter greens however I’ve but to discover a mixture I don’t like.
I really like including rice noodles to the rolls as a approach to bulk up the general chunk. I want the smaller brown rice noodles however I’ve additionally used thicker ones up to now. After all, you don’t have to make use of noodles in any respect. I’ll often swap out the noodles for lettuce or spinach.
Lastly, there are a number of several types of wrappers. There’s spherical/sq. and white/brown. Whereas I like utilizing brown rice papers, I discover they’re a bit harder to roll. I’ve been sticking to the smaller 6” white wrappers, which is what I used for this recipe.

2 teaspoons olive oil
three tablespoons soy sauce
