Hello lovelies, I would like to share our favorite summer recipe with you today: summer rolls with tofu, chinese vermicelli and a tasty peanut-dip. They are easy to prepare, only rolling them with rice paper seems a bit tricky in the beginning. But after some practicing my girls can roll them on their own by now. Summer rolls are perfect for a hot summer day, not too heavy and most notably everyone can fill them their own way. They are perfect for the whole family.
Our favorite style contains vermicelli noodles, roasted tofu, different vegetables and fresh herbs, but of course tastes are different. I love summer rolls with cilantro and mint, the kids prefer them with basil and daddy Frei can happily live without any herbs :-). Our favorite dips are either soy sauce or a delicious peanut dip.
Summer rolls are originated in Vietnam and represent the healthy alternative to spring rolls as they aren’t fried. I like spring for sure, but I prefer summer and therefore I would always choose the summer rolls if I had to. Besides they contain way less calories than their greasy relatives.
Here is the recipe:
You absolutely have to try these summer rolls if you haven’t done so yet. Daddy Frei was rather skeptical the first time, but after eating 2 of them he even asked for more :-). At first the ingredients may sound a little exotic but you can get everything at the orange M or any other large grocery store that has an Asian food section. And then nothing stands in the way of rolling an dipping.
