Summer is here and our bodies are asking for all of the fresh produce and colorful vegetables. Spring rolls are a really easy way to sneak a bunch of colorful and crunchy vegetables all at once (plus it also serves as a great starter for all of your summer get togethers.) You can get creative and add your favorite fresh herbs like parsley, dill, or basil. We like to let our intuition guide us - but since it's heart chakra month, our pro tip is: that any green herb will work to balance your heart energy. Raw foods are high vibrational, since in this form it maintains as many nutrients without being affected by heating. An instant way to uplift your energy is to prepare your own food and if you are consuming raw food, you can expect to feel even more of a shift.
What really takes spring rolls to the next level is a really flavorful dipping sauce. This almond butter, Aura Bloom dipping sauce - is packed with healthy fats and loving heart centered energy. We add our Aura bloom Wellness Elixir to create space for deeper connection, and what better way to connect than through food? These Rainbow Spring Rolls will be your go to appetizer all summer long, and a sure way to help you slow down in order to savor meaningful moments.
Here’s how to prep:
- Vegetables of your choice. We used: cucumber, purple cabbage, carrots, bell pepper, butter lettuce, and avocado
- Rice Paper
- Herbs of your choice. In this recipe we used mint and basil
- 1/4 cup of almond butter
- 2 tbsp of tamari
- 2 tbsp of rice vinegar

Cut up some of your fav veggies into small strips
Take rice paper and soak in warm water for about 15 seconds or until rice paper softens
Now it’s time to assemble! Lay down a piece of small butter lettuce in the rice paper and then load the veggie inside the butter lettuce. You don’t want to over stuff your rolls
Layer in the mint and basil
Roll it up & cut in half
Repeat until you’ve made your desired amount of rainbow rolls
