Vegan summer rolls with peanut-dip
There is nothing better than the first glimpses of summer. But here in the north we still have to wait a few months for that, so instead we decided to create summer in our kitchen.
I first tried summer rolls a few years ago in Helsinki. Back when we still lived there we used to go to this tiny place called Rulla for lunch every chance we got. They only served summer rolls, but by god were they good. The rolls were fresh, filled with flavour, and so, so beautiful.
We immediately fell in love with summer rolls and never wanted to eat anything else again. Even though we've already lived in Stockholm for over a year we still haven't found a great summer roll place. And a few days ago we couldn't stand it anymore. We had to make them ourselves.
Summer rolls are a lot easier to make then you might imagine, you don't have to be a chef to master this recipe. The key to a successful summer roll is the sauce, yes, the sauce. And fresh ingredients.
Oh and don't stress with the rolling of the paper. Anton is usually pretty handy with stuff that requires one to be meticulous, but rolling rice papers was a bit too much for him. But it doesn't matter that none of the rolls he rolled made it into the pictures (Anton: Thankfully! You would have never trusted a recipe of mine ever again!) they still tasted great!
So don't let the thought of rolling rice paper put you off making this recipe, they'll taste just as good no matter how you roll them!
