Fresh Veggie Spring Rolls

Posted by Katie Cooks On Monday, June 7, 2010 0 comments

Whenever my husband and I go out for Thai, we always begin our meal with an order of spring rolls. Over the past eight years, I have learned to love this fresh little appetizer. If you haven't had them before, a spring roll is like an herbed salad encased in a rice noodle wrap. We usually dip them in a sweet and sour peanut sauce.

I needed a project on Friday after work, so I stopped at the store, bought up the best looking fresh veggies, and went to work as soon as I got home. Miles was doubtful that I could pull them off, but he changed his tune when he took his first bite. These rolls have it all. They are pretty on the plate, tasty in your mouth, and healthy for you. Not to mention versatile. Fill them with any veggie you have in fridge, in your garden, or just happen to love.

Quesadilla Pie

As far as Miles and I are concerned, Mexican food always satisfies. Case in point. Last night, on his way home, Miles called me. I was on the phone with my friend Kim, and I didn't click over. She was in the middle of story, and I thought it would be rude to interrupt her. Then Miles called again, and I still didn't click over. It just wasn't the right time in the conversation. Needless to say, when I finally called him back, Miles was a little short with me. However, when he got home and saw all my Mexican fixings sprawled out on the counter, his mood immediately changed.

Miles: "Ohhh...(rubs palms together in anticipation) ...tacos?!!"
Me: "Close. Are you hungry?"
Miles: "Um...yeah!"

Our night turned happy, and all because of this quick, easy, and downright delicious little recipe. Turn your evening around, and make my quesadilla pie tonight!
