Vegetable Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

This is more of a recipe inspiration post rather than an actual recipe, but I still wanted to share this.

These spring rolls are so versatile. Below in the recipe I listed what I put in mine, but you can put just about anything. The traditional version has vermicelli and usually has shrimp in it. I changed mine so that it’s vegetarian and also easier to make.

And also excuse the fact that my rolls don’t look so pretty. I put too much stuff in each and they don’t wrap up as well. :/
