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?

Vegan Spiralized Summer Spring Rolls

Prep Time30 mins
Total Time30 mins
Servings: 6


  • 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


  • 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.)
  • Create an assembly line of the vegetables for the spring rolls (this just helps you keep organized).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
Hi Ali, First I would like to say you are fantastic to watch and how you explain everything. I love my Inspiralizer and the recipes you post. Even purchased one for my sister in law, but she is paying for hers !!! I never received my Free Inspiralized Starter EGuide Book when I joined the mailing list as it mentions on your website. I follow you on FB and share to all my friends..It is in overload!! I receive all your recipes on my main Computer where I can print and I just downloaded the App on my iPhone today, another great idea. I have you funny... Kindest Regards, Dianne PS: These rolls are excellent..waiting to make fact I want to make

what’s your favorite easy weeknight taco combo? 🌮 #inspiralizedwholefoodsmealideas

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
