Peanut-free, Dairy-free, Vegan/Vegetarian options
Summer is here! After that long Canadian winter, I am so happy to finally have some warm weather and sunshine. I'm ready for patios, picnics and all the summer treats. Who's with me?! These rice paper rolls are oh so fresh, and make for a perfect summer appetizer.
Rice paper rolls are definitely one of my go to appetizers because they are actually very easy to make, albeit a little time consuming but after you've made them once you really get the system down pat. Plus, they are completely versatile so you can add in all your favourite veggies and protein. I used shrimp in these ones but I have made them with chicken, or kept it simple with just the veg.
Now, let's dive into my absolute favourite sauce that I make. This sunflower sesame sauce is tangy, savoury, and packs a punch of gingery goodness. I even have a friend that will simply eat up the sauce with a spoon, ya it's that good. People think that it's made with peanut butter all the time and are so surprised when I tell them that it's sunflower seed butter. Of course, if you don't have an issue with peanut butter than you can easily substitute it in this recipe.
I usually double this recipe and use half for the rice paper rolls and then leave half to either marinate some meat or simply add to whatever I'm eating.
