Springroll4

Good evening Lovelies,

I hope everyone is having a great week so far. Thank god it’s starting to cool down.. I can’t believe how insanely expensive our electric bill was last month! It feels so nice to sit in front of the window as I type this and feel the cool breeze. I have been so busy this week and after some inspiration from a Beauty Detox blog assignment I decided to whip up some springs rolls for dinner. I luckily had all of the ingredients but if you don’t have them all they are easy to find and won’t cost you a fortune either. Plus the rice paper comes with a ton in a bag and seems to last a long time in the fridge. 

Before I go ahead with my recipe, I am curious if anyone has heard of massaged kale?? I keep seeing it in food posts or reading it on menus so I finally did a little research and it is exactly how it sounds: massaged kale! I decided to give it a try and really enjoyed it! Massaging the kale breaks down the tough cellulose structure and wilts it a bit so it has a lighter, less bitter taste and isn’t so rough. It’s great for a light salad or for giving it to someone who has never had it or isn’t a huge veggie person. I squeezed fresh lemon juice on it and literally massaged it for a few minutes until it reached the taste and look I liked. If you try it and it’s still too bitter just massage it a little longer. Once I finished I squeezed some more fresh lemon juice on it and poured some nutritional yeast over it so I will have nice big salad to last me a day or two. You can also add a little olive oil to it if you’d like and massage that in as well.

I didn’t really measure out the ingredients for this recipes.. I just put what fit so put as much as your stomach wants!

Directions

I love this recipe because it is so fast and simple! Just get a bowl of warm water, soak the rice paper in it. Lay the rice paper out on a plate, put all the ingredients in the middle and wrap it up like a burrito. And you’ve got yourself a quick and easy dinner.. I couldn’t wait so I ate them one by one as I made them 🙂
