Roll right into spring with these colorful veggie rolls!

When the weather starts to warm up in the Midwest, I always find myself reaching for vegetables to add to my meals and snacks. These rice paper rolls are a clear reflection of this tendency.

Bite-size and baked until crispy, thin and translucent rice paper pieces are stuffed with a flavorful spring-inspired filling of cauliflower, asparagus, peas and chickpeas with a dash of curry powder for some spice.

While these rolls are delicious are on their own, a dipping sauce is always a welcome, so I added citrusy cardamom to a classic mango chutney. The bright, tropical flavors paired perfectly with the hearty crunch of the veggie-packed bites! To ensure that the rice paper gets extra crispy, I recommend baking them on a wire rack.

Ingredients

For the Mango Cardamom Sauce

  • 1 Kent mango, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
  • ¼ cup Heinen’s pure organic maple syrup
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp. Heinen’s ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp. Heinen’s ground turmeric
  • ⅛ tsp. Heinen’s red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup water
  • A dash of black pepper
  • A pinch of sea salt

For the Rice Paper Rolls

  • 1 tsp. Heinen's coconut oil, plus more for brushing
  • ½ tsp. Heinen’s cumin seeds
  • ¼ red onion, chopped
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets, cut into small pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • ½ tsp. fresh ginger, grated
  • ½ cup Heinen’s chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup Heinen’s frozen peas
  • ½ cup asparagus, chopped into ½-inch pieces
  • 2 tsp. Heinen’s curry powder
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 15 6-inch Star Anise Foods spring roll rice paper
  • A dash of black pepper
  • A pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a wire rack over a sheet pan. Brush the wire rack with coconut oil.
  2. In a saucepan, combine all of the ingredients for the mango sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil and gently simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low, if necessary, to maintain a gentle simmer. Use a hand blender to puree until smooth.
  3. In a skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat and add the cumin seeds. Cook until aromatic, 1-2 minutes. Add the onion and cauliflower and cook until soft, 5 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic, ginger, chickpeas, peas, asparagus and curry powder. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the asparagus is bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the almonds. Let cool.
  5. Dip the rice paper into a bowl of water to wet, then place it on a work surface. The rice paper softens as you work on it. Place 3 Tbsp. of the filling in the center and roll up like a burrito. Repeat until all of the filling is used.
  6. Arrange the rolls on the prepared wire rack. Brush the surface of the rolls with coconut oil.
  7. Bake at 400°F for 20-30 minutes until golden and crispy. Serve warm with the mango cardamom sauce.
