- 16-20 rice paper wraps
- 1 large zucchini, spiralized
- 1 large carrot, grated or cut with a julienne peeler
- ½ red bell pepper, finely chopped
- ½ yellow bell pepper, finely chopped
- ½ mango, thinly sliced into strips
- 1 head green leaf lettuce
- 1 ½ cups finely chopped or shaved purple cabbage
- ¾ cup loosely packed mixed fresh mint, basil and parsley
- 1 avocado, thinly sliced
- 1 small red bird’s eye chili, de-seeded and very finely minced (optional)
Cashew Tahini Dipping Sauce:
- 1/2 cup natural cashew butter
- 1/4 cup low-sodium tamari
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
- 1 clove chopped garlic
- Toss all ingredients for the cashew dip in a blender and puree until completely smooth. Pour the sauce into a small bowl.
- Lay out all ingredients to fill the wraps, prepared as indicated above, on a tray or in bowls for easy access.
- One at a time, soak two rice wraps in a bowl of warm water until they soften completely. Lay the first one flat on a smooth surface, following with the other with about ½ of the wrap overlapping the first. (Layering will help prevent punctures and make the rolls more durable.) Arrange some of the fillings in a pile at the end nearest to you. Fold the edge nearest you over your fillings, then fold the left and right sides in as if making a burrito. Continue rolling away from yourself until the wrap is completely rolled up. Set it seam-side down on a plate.
- Repeat for the remaining rice wraps until you’ve used up all the fillings. Serve with the bowl of cashew tahini dipping sauce on the side.
If you need to make these ahead of time, wrap them in damp paper towels and keep them sealed in a Ziploc bag or container with a lid.
