Vegetable Spring Rolls & Superfood Salad

1 spoon difficulty rating

15-40 minutes

Less time if using ready-made spring rolls. Adjust quantities according to servings.

Serves: 1-4

Vegetable Spring Rolls & Superfood Salad

We offer a choice of convenience spring rolls and salads - see the pictures below for a few suggestions. OR you can do a home made version. You choose!

The home-made version is delicious and not difficult. Get all the food and equipment ready, remember to heat the oil in plenty of time - and go for it!

Alternatively, most supermarket spring rolls are suitable for vegans (but do check as sometimes dairy is added). They are best heated in the oven to crisp them up but a microwave will do at a pinch. 

For a filling nutritious lunch, serve with avocado, edamame bean (fresh soya), walnut and mixed green leaf salad. Mmmm. Fresh edamame salads are now widely available too.
