Spring Rolls with Shredded Chicken & a Spicy Ginger Avocado Spread.

January 6, 2013

Author Notes: Here is a quick, simple & healthy lunch. You can even make these spring rolls ahead of time to pack for the go. At the beginning of the week I like to poach an entire organic chicken. I can used the meat throughout the week & use the broth for soups or for cooking rice. Just double the recipe if you want to do appetizers...& get people involved too.

The flavors here are nice and clean, I didn't feel like I needed a dipping sauce, although Jediah used plain tamari on the side.
we eat. happy.

For the Spring Rolls

  1. Soak each wrapper one at a time in some cold water. About 15 seconds each. On a clean surface, lay flat & then fold in half.
  2. Spread about 1 TBL of avocado, then add a bit of greens, a few shreds of chicken & a few scallions. Tightly roll by bringing one side over the filling & making sure you bring the bottom in too.
