Avocado Shiitake Spring Rolls These fresh spring rolls are fun to make and a nutritious appetiser, snack or light lunch. This vegetarian version can be adapted to include ingredients like shrimp and the veggies can be swapped out or added as you like. 6 rice paper wrappers 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced ¾ cup cooked rice noodles ⅓ cup raw cashew pieces 6 tablespoons peanut sauce (bought or homemade) 6 large shiitake mushroom slices ½ orange bell pepper, sliced into short, thin strips Method Prep avocado, mushroom, and bell pepper. In small bowl, combine 6 tablespoons peanut sauce with rice noodles and cashew pieces. Before building rolls hydrate the rice paper by holding the wrapper under cool running water to get both sides wet. Remove from water and while still firm place wrapper on a large plate and begin filling as it will soften as it sits but not too soft that it becomes sticky or rips. To build the rolls place 3 slices avocado in middle of rice paper then top with 2 tablespoons sauced rice noodles, one slice shiitake and 4-5 slices bell pepper. To roll, fold short sides over, turn and fold one long side over and roll while tucking until the wrapper is completely enclosed.
