The Challenge: Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are delicious. This is an easy 30-minute recipe to make Thai-inspired spring rolls with a delicious spicy peanut sauce! The key to these spring rolls are encrusted sesame avocado slices that we bake up for an outstanding creamy center to the spring rolls. We balance them with great spring roll veggies like watermelon radishes, bean sprouts, cilantro, and more.

To go along with these spring rolls, we blister up fresh shishito peppers in a hot cast iron pan with some light spices that are the perfect complement to spring rolls. Further, these pepers are super easy to make and absolutely gorgeous delicious. YUMMM. 

Sesame avocado slices are absolutely gorgeous. The black + white sesame seeds with garlic powder and salt encrust the slices. We then bake them up so they are nice and crispy. This delicious treat makes for an absolutely amazing little addition to your spring rolls.

And spring rolls are nothing without a delicious spicy peanut sauce to dip the rolls. This sauce makes these rolls come alive and is the perfect complement to any Thai dish.
