Day 185: Spring Rolls
Spring rolls are a delicious vegetarian dish. It's healthy and pack packed with vegetables.
There are basically two types of spring rolls, one is usually fried, and this one is just soaked in water and rolled up.
These are easy, fast, and kid safe. They are from Vietnam. I love to eat mine, with this delicious peanut butter sauce!
The first time I had a spring roll was in one of my girl scout meeting as a 3rd grader.
Before 3rd grade I had avoided spring rolls. Usually the kind that were fried, which now, I actually love! Anyway, I was in my girl scout meeting where we started making food. And guess what? We made spring rolls! And I loved them!
