Since we just celebrated the Vernal Equinox, and have unrelatedly been learning about culture along the Mekong River, Littletree and I decided to make fresh Spring Rolls.
Starting with making some fillings – we took fresh veggies, chopped finely with some pre-cooked rice noodles.
Then Littletree had the task of spooning little portions of the filling into rice paper pastry sheets and rolling them up
Eventually we had a feast’s worth – don’t they look pretty!
Then into the wok
Littletree handled the frying admirably
And the end result – a huge stack of awesome
Mmmmm they smelled so delicious
But the final test was in the tasting, and Littletree is a very fussy food critic. Unfortunately, I was unable to get a comment from her, as she didn’t pause in stuffing her face with the spring rolls for long enough to get a word in.
Later, she did wax lyrical about how amazing they are, and begged me to promise we’ll make more soon. Yum!
