Spring Roll with Sweet & Spicy Peanut Sauce (Vegan, WFPB)

A treat that I enjoy whenever I am back home visiting family is stopping by my favorite Vietnamese restaurant that makes the tastiest spring rolls. And after testing out the various options on numerous occasions I felt like it was time to share my own version of whole food plant based spring roll with a sweet and spicy peanut dipping sauce. I also felt like it was the perfect time to share this recipe because of how great of a appetizer I think it would make for my Super Bowl party! The great thing about this recipe is how customizable it really is. If you would like to add some avocado or bell peppers, great. If you just want to keep it as simple as possible then the base recipe is perfect for you. I also love that if you decide to make a good amount of the spring rolls, you can then prepare a few different sauces including the sweet and spicy peanut sauce to really diversify this dish.

If you go ahead and try this recipe, let me know what you think and share a picture on my Facebook page of how it turned out!
