Simple, fresh and popping with flavor– Thai Basil Summer Rolls are guaranteed to make your taste buds dance! Great for healthy meals at home or to bring to a party. My favorite way to eat them is to take a summer roll, wrap it in a soft lettuce with a piece of basil or mint and top with a little homemade Thai coconut Chili Sauce!
Thai Vegan Mango Basil Summer Rolls: by @earthyandy
Whatever ingredients you want… go for it- be creative! This is one of my favorites right here.
8 rice paper wrappers
a few torn leafy greens (butter lettuce, soft lettuce is great)
1 medium cucumber
2 medium carrots
1/4 of small red cabbage
a handful of fresh mint or thai basil
a couple green onions
crushed peanuts for topping
Slice ALL ingredients necessary into thin strips about 3 inches long. Slice the avocado and mango into pieces.
Soak one rice paper wrapper at a time into a bowl of warm water for about 15-30 seconds.
Put rice paper on a counter or cutting board
Arrange a few of the vegetables and herbs in the center of the wrapper horizontally, starting with the leafy greens and ending with the avocado and mango. Wrap like a burrito fold top over and push ingredients back and then the left and right sides towards the middle. Fold over, tuck and roll delicately but firmly! (If your first ones fall apart.. it still tastes good so no losses! 🙂
Cut the rolls in half if you want to enjoy its beauty and place on a serving platter
Drizzle or dip in your choice of sauce or wrap individually and store in an airtight container for later!
