Sesame Quinoa Spring Rolls

spring rolls

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups quinoa
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 handfuls of greens
  • 10 rice paper wrappers

Dressing:

  • 4 tbs. rice vinegar
  • 5 tbs. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 4 tsp. sesame oil

Directions:

  1. Rinse and drain the quinoa and cook for 12 minutes in 3 cups of water.
  2. While quinoa cooks, make the dressing, cut up the greens and whisk the greens and dressing together in a bowl.
  3. Once quinoa is done, combine it with the dressed greens.
  4. Before assembling the spring rolls, fill a square pan with water. Then soak a wrapper for 30 seconds or until it begins to soften. Don’t let it sit for too long because it will fall apart.
  5. Place the wet rice wrapper on a flat surface and with a spoon fill the wrapper with about 3 tbs. of the lettuce quinoa mixture. Fold the edges over and roll into a spring roll. Repeat by soaking another rice wrapper and wrapping it . Keep going until all the filling has been used.

Enjoy!-Mariana
