The Recipe Redux is afraid that we’re getting into a lunch rut and is using this month’s Redux to inspire us all to create new ideas for packing lunch for you and your family. If packable noontime options are dwindling, check out my healthy, fun to eat lunch around: spicy vegetarian fresh rolls. Fresh rolls are my go-to appetizer when I’m some one of my favorite cuisines – Vietnamese or Thai. Light, easy to transport, and really healthy, these make the perfect lunch. If you’re tired of a constant rotation of sandwiches or salads, prep these spicy vegetarian spring rolls this week and take them with you for lunch!
I’ve designed my spring rolls to have home-made sauce INSIDE so you don’t need to bring anything to dip on the side. Use my veggie combo or choose your own. Bell peppers, cucumbers or sprouts would be a wonderful addition. I made these fresh rolls vegan by using tofu but you could also use shrimp if desired – I do that sometimes to mix it up. One final note; be sure to place a damp paper towel over your rolls or they will dry out overnight causing a disappointing lunch. Have fun and let me know if you try these spicy vegetarian fresh rolls to break out of your lunch routine.
