Making spring rolls is a fun way to get your kids more involved with loving vegetables. Let them sub in their favorite greens or try interesting combinations of crunchy salad vegetables. Bamboo shoots, rice paper wrappers, and bean sprouts can usually be found in the Asian section of your local grocery store. For added or variety flavor, play around with adding a combination of fresh herbs such as mint, cilantro or Thai basil.

Tip: The sauce is best served warm—being made with fruit preserves, it will gel once it cools down far enough.

Ingredients

Spring Rolls:

  • ½ cup bamboo shoots, shredded
  • 2 carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 cups finely chopped Napa cabbage
  • 10 (6") rice paper wrappers

Dipping Sauce:

  • ½ cup juice-sweetened apricot preserves
  • ¼ tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • ½ tsp. hot pepper sauce

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, toss bamboo shoots, carrots, cucumbers, bean sprouts, and cabbage. Divide into 10 equal portions.
  2. Soak one rice paper in warm water until softened, about 30 seconds. Lay the rice paper on a clean, flat surface. Place one portion of the vegetable mixture in the center of the rice paper. Fold the left and right sides into the middle until almost touching. Roll paper from the bottom to form a roll. Repeat for remaining rice papers.
  3. To make sauce, whisk together the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to boil, stirring constantly, until well combined (2 minutes). Serve cold spring rolls with warm sauce for dipping.
