  7. Repeat for all your rolls 
  8. To prepare the peanut sauce, mix all the ingredients together in a small pot or microwave until combined, then serve with the spring rolls. 

Notes

This video tutorial should help you with the rolling process if you are more visual. 

Using vermicelli noodles in these spring rolls will help give them some bulk and make them easier to roll up. 

If preparing these spring rolls in advance, store them in an airtight container in the fridge between two damp paper towels. 

Add or swap out any veggies you like, or try adding some tofu or tempeh if you want more protein in these rolls.
