Summer rolls with dipping sauces

We have been trying out some lovely summer rolls like they eat in Southeast Asia, but we made up some of our own dipping sauces to go with them… great for a hot day al fresco lunch. Just get some rice wraps from an Asian supemarket and make up a selection of raw veggies – carrot, cucumber, lettuce and spring onions. You can combine these with these tasty sauces:

Avocado wasabi sauce

1 teaspoon of wasabi paste

2 teaspoons of soy sauce

2 avocados

handful of chopped coriander

juice of 1 lime


Here is another dipping sauce that we tried and it was a good combination with the summer rolls

Lemon tahini dressing

2 tbsp tahini

¼ cup soaked seeds (e.g. sunflower and pumpkin)

½ cup lemon juice

½ cup orange juice

2 tbsp tamari (soy sauce)

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp honey

1 clove garlic

1 tbsp grated ginger

pinch of salt

1 cup of water (to thin mixture)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and pour over a salad or steamed/roasted veg etc
