Vegetarian Fresh Vietnamese Spring Rolls
This lovely recipe for fresh Vietnamese spring rolls is not just vegetarian.
It satisfies the requirements for vegan recipes as well.
This delightful recipe comes from a cookbook called 750 Best Appetizers: From Dips and Salsas to Spreads and Shooters by Judith Finlayson and Chef Jordan Wagman.
Try them as an appetizer the next time you have people over for an Asian themed meal or as a wonderful finger food recipe for your next party.
2 cups (500 mL) shredded baby bok choy
To Make the Dressing:
For the rolls:
Working with only one rice paper at a time, submerse the sheet in hot water until pliable, which will take about 30 seconds. Place it on a work surface.
Spread one-portion of the vegetable mixture in a strip across the rice paper wrapper about one-third away from the edge closest to you, leaving about 1 inch (2.5 cm) on either side. Fold the edge closest to you over the filling and pull gently toward you to encase the filling. Fold the sides toward the middle, then continue to roll up tightly.
Place the rolls under a damp cloth to stay moist because the wrappers tend to dry out quickly. Serve the rolls immediately with the dipping sauce below, if using, or refrigerate for up to 1 hour. Serve them whole or for a small hors d'oeuvre, cut in them half on the diagonal and place them on a serving platter.
Makes 8 rollsTo make a wonderful dipping sauce:
In a small ramekin, combine the remaining dressing with 1/4 cup soy sauce and 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped peanuts.

Author Judith Finlayson says this about her wonderful spring rolls recipe: "This is almost a two-for-one recipe -the fresh rolls are wonderful all on their own but the leftover marinade creates the perfect dipping sauce."
I think you will love these Vietnamese spring rolls and the fantastic dipping sauce. They are absolutely delicious and oh so easy to make.
