Sweet Chili Black Bean Spring Rolls

IMG_0544

It has been starting to warm up a bit around these parts after some brutally cold weather, which inspired me to make more of a summery dish (in my opinion). Although I really enjoy crispy baked spring rolls, I have never tried uncooked spring rolls…and they were fantastic. They’re really easy to take for lunch, but didn’t last as long as I would have liked in the fridge, so be sure to consume them within two days to prevent soggy rolls!

Keeping with yesterday’s theme of super quick and easy, the filling will take about 1 minute to assemble and I have included some easy step-by-step instructions to follow when putting together the rolls. Do not be intimidated by the work involved because once you get into your groove, it will take you no time at all.

I typically do not buy many pre-made sauces and dressings, but a while ago I tried to make a sweet chili sauce, but couldn’t find the right peppers needed, so it did not taste as authentic as I would have liked (not to mention it burned my mouth with one drop). Therefore, I decided that since I couldn’t find the specific pepper needed, I would just buy it already made. Just be sure to check the sodium content (try for less than 300 mg per serving if possible) and look for minimal ingredients in the ingredients list, rather than a long list of names you can’t pronounce.

Lay 2 tbsp. of filling along centre, leaving about a 1/2 inch on the sides

    These look great! What coleslaw did you use?
    I have made Summer rolls with mushroom mixture aaand I think I made some with prawns as well, super easy once you get the hang of it like you said! Best served on wooden boards though, as they tend to stick on normal plates. Hmmm and now I wonder if the coleslaw could be substituted with some egg-salad, might have to try that!
