You know when you make something utterly delicious and you think to yourself, “Man, I could eat this every single day and never get sick of it!” That’s exactly what happened when I made these Green Goddess Quinoa Spring Rolls. Yeah, that’s right.
I’ve been a spring roll fiend for quite some time now. Light, fresh, dip-able spring rolls filled with crunchy veggies and paired with a sweet and salty sauce— sign me up! I’m always game. Always.
Back in January, I finally attempted to make my own at home and was blown away by how easy and delicious they were. And then I became even more obsessed. I was making spring rolls like it was my job… the same version over and over again. Why I never thought to change it up— god only knows— maybe that version was just so satisfying. But the time came to step out of my spring roll comfort zone. So here I am. Quinoa and all. Making more spring rolls.
I honestly didn’t know how these would turn out as I was making them. I kinda thought they would just end up being a huge messy, but totally delicious, failure (ending with a kitchen floor full of lovely little quinoa that is SO easy to clean up…. not). But it didn’t! At all! The quinoa stuck together like magic, binding with the creamy avocado and crunchy asparagus, making it the least bit messy. Like, there wasn’t a single pesky white crumb on my floor. Like I said, magic.
But the real magic is this dipping sauce. Savory, salty, peanuty dipping sauce that is the true icing on the cake to these tasty little rolls. And so simple to make too! I used my stash of PB2 as the basis for my sauce, but you could easily use natural peanut butter with some warm water to thin it out. I love using powdered peanut butter for my sauces because it makes for such a thin, yet creamy consistency. If you’re not familiar with powdered peanut butter, check it out here. It’s totally ideal for making sauces, but definitely not for eating peanut butter by the spoonful (in my mind at least). We use the real deal for that, of course 🙂
So enjoy! Get in your greens for the day, along with a quinoa protein punch, and dip it up in the best peanut sauce you ever made in 60 seconds or less. Bam!
I’m going to go make another batch for dinner now 😉
