Summer Salad Rolls with Walnut Beef and Peanut Sauce

Print

A little twist on a classic salad roll is up next! I mean, come on, how excited are you to try out walnut beef? After adapting the recipe and practicing it a few times I finally came up with this goodie! These rolls are slightly time consuming but when they are made they are the perfect snack to bring along to school, work or on the road. They are super easy to stow away in a container and enjoy later when you’re feeling up for a delicious snack. I highly recommend enjoying with the bad-ass peanut sauce I’ve suggested — it pairs perfectly with the slightly crunchy walnuts and fresh and creamy avocado and mango! Yum!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These spring rolls are a great cooling summer dinner! Walnuts are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids which are essential in keeping your brain in tip top shape. Using them as a meat substitute is a fantastic way to still get protein and nutrients without the meat. Mangoes are a great source of vitamins C and A - great anti-oxidants to protect your body from free radical damage.

Summer Salad Rolls with Walnut Beef and Peanut Sauce

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 2 minutes
  • Servings: 4

Ingredients

WALNUT BEEF

2 cups (200 g) crushed walnuts
Juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons (45 ml) soy sauce
1 tablespoon (13 g) coconut sugar
½ teaspoon fresh grated fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 tablespoon (20 g) hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon 5-spice powder
Salt and pepper to taste

SALAD ROLLS

10 rice paper rolls
3 cups (100 g) alfalfa sprouts or 3 cups (528 g) cooked white rice noodles
1 ripe mango, thinly sliced
1 large bunch of mint, thinly sliced
1 large bunch of cilantro, stems removed
1 large yellow pepper, cut into matchsticks
1 ripe avocado, thinly sliced
3 medium carrots, shredded
jar of bottled Asian peanut thai sauce

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the walnuts, lime juice, soy sauce, coconut sugar, ginger, garlic, hot sauce, 5-spice powder and salt and pepper. Give the mixture a good stir and set aside.
  2. Bring 4 cups (1 L) of water to a boil. Slice or cut any fillings you will be using. Arrange a preparation station with all your ingredients.
  3. Fill a large shallow dish with the boiling water and place a damp cloth next to it on the kitchen counter. Have a plate and another damp dish towel on hand.
  4. When you are ready to assemble your rolls, dip the rice paper into the water just long enough to soften, 10 to 20 seconds, then quickly and gently transfer to the damp cloth.
  5. Add your desired fillings, then gently roll over once, fold in both sides and then roll again to seal the salad roll. Place onto a serving plate and cover with another damp, room temperature kitchen towel.
  6. Repeat above steps until you run out of toppings. Use peanut dressing as a dip. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for 2 days.

Note

If you are prepping these rolls to eat during the week I recommend leaving out the mango and avocado because they will brown and not stay as fresh as the other vegetables.
