Fresh spring rolls are the perfect crunchy starter and a fun way to eat your vegetables. Perfectly suited for the sattvic/yogic diet and made only from positive pranic ingredients, they are loved not just by adults, but they make an awesome snack on hot summer days for your kids as well.
I love to use whole grain rice paper for the rolls to maximize the nutritional benefits. But if none are readily available, you can use regular rice paper.
watch me do it
In this sattvic fresh roll recipe, I use french green beans that I slightly sauteed and flavored by my Basic Savory Sattvic Spice Mix. I highly recommend that you make this spice mix to keep handy in your pantry. It is extremely versatile and I use it often. It takes 5 minutes to make, stays in your pantry for up to 3 months, and is extremely versatile. It goes perfectly with such a broad variety of dishes. You can use it in soups. stews, for frying, baking, and basically everything else.
However, if you set your mind on making those rolls now and you’re not prepared yet to make the Basic Savory Sattvic Spice Mix right now, you can use just salt and pepper.
- 8 rice roll papers
- 1 red bell pepper (thinly sliced )
- 1 carrot (medium, julienned)
