Vegan Spiralized Summer Spring Rolls

Over Memorial Day weekend, my husband and I committed to a staycation.

Usually, over MDW, we go with my family to my parents’ place in Singer Island, FL. While my sister and her boyfriend went, we decided to stay in Jersey City and staycate. I “staycate” a word?

While on this staycation, we relaxed, napped, laid by our apartment’s pool, and ate on a weird schedule – late breakfasts and early dinners, etc. Instead of having big lunches, we filled up on snacks.

Vegan Spiralized Summer Spring Rolls

One of the snacks we got into that weekend: summer rolls.

In the grocery store in our apartment (it’s like a mini-Whole Foods, kinda), they have a sushi bar where there’s fresh sushi made daily. As part of the sushi, they make summer rolls – rice wrapper filled with veggies and avocado.

We had them nearly everyday of Memorial Day weekend. They’re so crisp, refreshing, and oddly, filling. They definitely refresh you and are the perfect snack to make during the hot and humid Jersey summer days.

Instead of buying them, I decided to make my own at home to have on hand during the weekends as snacks – for Lu, for me, and for whoever comes and visits.

Vegan Spiralized Summer Spring Rolls

These summer rolls are SO easy to make – and totally customizable. In the recipe, I share what I used to make the ones you see photograppehd here, but get creative and add what you’d like in there – beets, bell peppers, shrimp, etc.

The dipping sauce isn’t even necessary, but I wanted to include it to eliminate all guesswork. However, I think dripping over a little soy sauce or hot sauce is all you need. This sesame-peanut sauce is from Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook, Cravings – and from the recipe I shared from her book last month. Remember?

  • For the dipping sauce:
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • For the spring rolls:
  • 6 rice paper wrappers
  • 1 large avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced (1/8” thick)
  • handful of fresh cilantro
  • handful of fresh mint
  • 1 large English seedless cucumber, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • about 2 medium carrots, peeled and julienned
  • about 2 packed cups Boston or Bibb lettuce
  • 1 large lime, quartered
  • pepper, to season


  1. Make the dipping sauce. Combine all of the ingredients into a food processor and pulse until creamy. Reserve six tablespoons and save the rest in the refrigerator for future use (or freezer.)
  2. Create an assembly line of the vegetables for the spring rolls (this just helps you keep organized).
  3. Fill a shallow dish with warm water. One at a time, dip a rice wrapper sheet into the water for 5 to 10 seconds. Remove and place on a flat surface, like a cutting board or plate.
  4. In the middle of one of the rice wrappers, lay 2 avocado slices (only do 1 if that’s all can fit) down, 1 pinch of cilantro and 1 pinch of mint, cucumber noodles, carrots, and top with lettuce. Squeeze over with 1/2 lime wedge and season with pepper.
  5. Fold the bottom half of the rice paper wrapper over the filling. Holding firmly in place, fold the sides of the wrapper in. Then, pressing firmly down to hold in place, roll the entire wrapper horizontally up from the bottom to the top. Turn the roll so that the seam faces down and the avocado faces up.
  6. Continue with the remaining ingredients and rice wrappers to make four. Place on a plate and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate, if not serving immediately.
  7. Serve the spring rolls with the dipping sauce.

These looks delicious! I've wanted to make something like this for a while but never think about the rice paper wrappers when I'm at the store. One thing, you may want to double check the recipe; instructions 3&4 are basically the same thing, and #7 references a mango sauce. ;)
Susan says:
Mango dipping sauce? The last line threw me off.
Kim Wilson says:
Me too and I've now searched everywhere bc that sounds so good!!
Diane says:
Where can I find rice paper?
Kimberly says:
Asian markets
Spring rolls are so popular in Vietnam, but they generally aren't vegan! I love this recipe because it's so light, fresh yet so simple to make. And I agree--spring rolls are incredibly filling!
Deborah says:
If you don't eat grains, lightly steamed collard leaves make wonderful wrappers for things like this!
Michele says:
Thanks so much for the tip! I'll try it.
Yum!! I've been craving lots of raw veggies this summer, so spring rolls are a great meal right now. I would love to add some baked tempeh to this to make it a heartier meal!
Michele Pryse says:
Avocado is a nice change of pace from shrimp. This made for a quick & easy dinner last night, not too heavy on a warm evening.
Suzanne says:
Ali- LOVE this recipe! However, I don't have peanut oil. Is grapeseed oil a good substitute?
Ali Maffucci says:
Yes or olive oil will do the trick !
One of my favorite at the Vietnamese restaurant.
Meaghan says:
So happy to hear! You'll love these.
Cindy says:
I like this.
Jackie says:
Hi Ali - what size rice wrappers do you use? I tried making these the other night and found I couldn't fit everything inside the wrapper without it falling apart!

okay okay, I promise I'll be explaining soon why I'm feverishly testing all of these recipes and not (yet!) sharing the recipes. 😇 but I just had to share this photo because these little Carrot Dogs in Blankets 🥕 came out so well , my picky dad (he's a great man but has a very judgy/picky palate), ate one and said, "tastes like a hot dog!" 🌭 👏🏼⁣

would you try them?! 👇🏼⁣

I have nothing prolific to say today (I’ve just been madly testing recipes for this project I’ll be announcing soon) except that today was the first day in my life that I actually enjoyed sliced tomatoes on a sandwich. 🍅 🍞⁣

I’m not a fan of raw tomatoes, except in something subtle like a pico de gallo or if they’re a tiny part of a meal, like a garnish. but today, I made this chickpea tuna salad melt with tomatoes and spinach and LOVED it. 👍🏼⁣

it got me thinking… I can’t be the only one. do you like raw tomatoes? 🤔

luca made a friend today! 👦🏼 🚴‍♂️⁣

one of the things that has made me sad during COVID has been that Luca hasn't spent much time with other kids his age. this summer, we had a little pod of a few kids, but slowly but surely, as the year went on, kids moved to the suburbs, enrolled in school (we didn't feel comfortable), and then as the temperature dropped, the rest of the kids stopped braving the cold and since we felt uncomfortable with indoor playdates, it was really just our little family hanging out. and Luca wasn't hanging out with anyone his age much. ⁣

I have so many thoughts on this. will this change his personality and social skills forever? will he be socially awkward? will he lose out on so many developmental milestones? will this affect his emotional awareness? the list goes on. I know it's only a year or so, but that's over 1/3 of his entire life!⁣

and now that we're in Florida, we just keep to ourselves at my parents' house and don't see any other kids. it's so nice to be together as a family, and I know so many families can't be together right now, so I'm so grateful for that. the other day, Luca saw a 7-year-old boy on a bike in my parents' neighborhood and he asked us if he could be his friend. I almost broke down in tears.⁣

so by chance, we were out on his bike this afternoon and sure enough, we saw the little boy again, riding his bike, with his mother. in that moment, I knew I had to make a move - so I called out to the mother and asked her, "I know this is going to sound weird, but my son would love to hang out with your son! I'd love to get your number so they can ride bikes together sometime!" I was so nervous, haha! ⁣

and just like that, Luca made a friend! they immediately started riding their bikes together (it was so cute I couldn't handle it!!!) and Roma even came a little bit later and literally slipped her hand into the little boy's hand, it was like she was starving for that connection. it was so adorable, and I'm so happy for Luca to have someone to safely play outside with and so I can shed some of this mama worry.⁣

as for these chocolate donuts, search the blog, they’re an oldie but a goodie! 🍩🍫
