The spring roll wrappers needed should be specified more clearly. There are two types of wrappers available. One kind needs to be cooked (made from flour and eggs) while the other (made from rice flour) does not.


I make these all the time for a quick, light dinner. My favorite dip is quick peanut sauce - 2T hoisin, 2T peanut butter, 1T light soy. Slowly drizzle water in until it achieves a smooth texture.


These spring rolls are awesome! It's always a little nerve-wracking to be the first person to try out a recipe, but these were delicious. I'm not big on the sauce in the recipe, however. I paired these rolls with the Indonesian Satay recipe from this site. That recipe included instructions for a peanut sauce which was WONDERFUL with the spring rolls. I have never worked with rice wrappers before. I was suprised at how pliable they were. I completely soaked the wrappers to make them soft but they never ripped. Once I got the hang of wrapping the filling it was easy. I did use small wrappers and could only fit 1/12 of the filling in each, therefore ended up making 12 little bites. I also added some bean sprouts for extra crunch. Fantastic! Really scrumptous and so healthful. Not to mention one of the most fun recipes I have ever made!
