Fresh Basil Spring Rolls with Vegetables
Health Highlights
Fun & easy to make with kids or by yourself. Great for those nights you are lacking time.


4 piece Rice paper
12 leaf Basil, fresh
8 slice Cucumber (sliced vertically)
1/4 cup grated Carrots
1/2 cup shredded Red leaf lettuce (or chopped thin; or any type of lettuce)


  1. Take a plate and put warm water on the plate (like a large puddle).
  2. Put 1 rice wrapper at a time in the water for 10 seconds. Make sure the rice wrapper is fully submerged under water. Remove from water and put on a dry flat surface (another plate, cutting board, or countertop).
  3. First place the basil leaves, and next layer some cucumbers, carrots, and lettuce. Wrap it all up like a burrito, fold the bottom over the filling, fold in the left and right sides, and roll to close.
  4. Ready to eat with your choice of dipping sauce like Thai chili sauce or a spicy peanut sauce. See notes for lots of other possible ingredients to add.
