Vietnamnese Summer Rolls

This is the other thing I made this weekend. :) Felt like eating something light, and simple, with lots of veggies.
For the Rolls:
Soft lettuce (Romaine/red leaf/butter/not the regular salad type)
Cucumbers
Coriander(cilantro)
Mint
Green onion
Dry rice noodles (bun/ bee hoon)
Eggs
Tofu, firm
Rice paper (about 8" diameter)
Chopped peanuts or sesame seeds
For the Sauce:
Gado Gado sauce ( package bought from Oriental market. If cannot find, use Peanut butter, add garlic, onion, salt, lime juice)
Hoisin sauce
Hot sauce if desired

Shred the lettuce. Slice the carrots, cucumber and tofu into strips. Cook the eggs and slice into strips. Cook the rice noodles.Chop the green onions. Remove the mint leaves from the stems.
To assemble, add all the ingredients into the rice paper. Dip the rice paper into water until damp before placing the ingredients. Sprinkle sesame seeds or peanuts. Roll it up.

Sauce. Place the gado gado sauce into a pan with some water. Once the block becomes liquid, add in hoisin sauce and chili sauce.

An alternative to making summer rolls with these ingredients- "Asian haystacks!" :)
Assemble all these ingredients into a bowl, but use a different sauce. I mixed lemon juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, sweet black soy sauce ( Kecap Manis), pepper, mushroom seasoning, sesame oik and siracha sauce.

A thought from Ellen G White in her book God's Nutritionist from Ministry of Healing, 1905, states, "In order to have good health, we must have good blood, for the blood is the current of life. It repairs waste, and nourishes the body. When supplied with the proper food elements, and when cleansed and vitalized by contact with pure air, it carries life and vigor to every part of the system. The more perfect the circulation, the better will this work be accomplished."



Have a great week! Love, Cherry :)
