Vegan Summer Rolls

I kept seeing pictures of summer rolls online and they looked so good I felt obligated to create my own. These are wonderfully fresh and full of vibrant flavours, served with a delicious peanut dip. This recipe could be made raw by leaving out the mushrooms.

Ingredients
Veggies and Rice Paper
Garlic-Ginger Mushrooms
Peanut Sauce
Servings: rolls
Instructions
Garlic-Ginger Mushrooms
  1. Add the mushrooms into a pan and dry-fry until the moisture starts to come out. Add the ginger, garlic and soy sauce and saute for about 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl ready to add to your wraps.
Wraps
  1. Slice all your veggies and get them ready on a chopping board or plate.
  2. Fill a large bowl with cold water and wrap a damp tea towel around a chopping board.
  3. Dip a rice paper wrap into the water and lay onto the tea towel. Assemble your wraps by filling in the centre of the wrap being careful not to overfill!
  4. Wrap starting with the bottom and top, then fold over one side. Then with the bulk of the wrap in your palm and fingers tucked underneath, gently fold it over onto the other side. Lay on a plate and repeat. It might take a few attempts to get it right.. but stick with it and most importantly be patient!
Peanut Sauce
  1. Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Add more water if it's too thick.

Vegan Halloumi Salad

This recipe uses Violife's Mediterranean Style Block which is a plant-based alternative to halloumi cheese. When fried it tastes very similar to the real thing, and it's amazing in this salad!

Salad and Dressing
  1. Add the salad leaves, avocado slices and sliced baby plum tomatoes to a bowl or plate.
  2. In a separate bowl, add the lime juice, olive oil, vinegar, basil and red chilli with a pinch of pepper. Mix well
  3. When the halloumi is ready, gently toss the salad with the dressing before topping with the halloumi pieces. Tuck in!

Chickpea & Avocado Salad

This salad is one of my favourites because it's fresh, quick and full of flavour. It's almost a chunky chickpea-guacamole type thing and so easy and cheap to make.
