I seriously have an addiction to these beautifully healthy veg spring rolls! Whether they are dipped in peanut sauce or chili sauce, I’m perfectly happy with these crunchy flavorful masterpieces. If you love wraps, these Easy Lettuce Wraps are another terrific option.

We love spring rolls because they’re…

  • Simple
  • Fresh
  • Customizable
  • Wholesome
  • Fun
  • Delicious

Spring roll stuffing options

There are so many different things to choose from as far as what to fill your fresh spring roll with. My favorite Thai restaurant even includes slices of cantaloupe, which sounds weird, but it tastes wonderful.

  • large green leaf. I like either collard, turnip, or chard leaves
  • shredded carrots  and shredded broccoli slaw (both bought already shredded in a bag to make it simpler)
  • avocado
  • celery
  • green onion
  • bean sprouts
  • fresh mint
  • crushed peanuts (optional)
  • thin rice noodles
  • tofu
  • melon such cantaloupe or honeydew

The recipe card at the bottom of the page has the full list of ingredients with measurements and instructions.

Other than your choice of veggies, all you will need are rice paper wraps and dipping sauce.

I have three favorite dipping sauces. One is a vinegar sauce that my favorite Thai restaurant uses. The second is my 10-Minute Peanut Spring Roll Sauce. And the last one is a red chili sauce that I buy online

This peanut sauce is an excellent addition to so many dishes. With no cooking required, it can be ready in 10-minutes flat! Pair them with this Easy Vegan Pad Thai for the perfect meal!

Used as a sauce over noodles, dipping sauce with wraps, or as a salad dressing, this simple creamy peanut sauce can be made low-fat by using PB2 or with natural peanut butter.

Wrapping spring rolls

Wrapping vegan spring rolls isn’t that difficult after you get the hang of it.

The rice paper wrap simply needs to be submerged into very warm water for a few seconds until it become soft and foldable.

Then lay it out on a flat surface and add the veggies and other stuffings you like. After that, just fold it up, dip in sauce, and enjoy.

This is a great 1+ minute demo on how to do it.

Tips for serving with rice

Toss some rice in your rice steamer, and you’ve got a healthy delicious meal without even heating up the stove. 

  • I usually do a mixture of brown and jasmine rice, sometimes Botan.
  • Though I love brown rice, my husband prefers a mixture of white and brown. It’s so easy to cook the two together in a rice steamer. Just remember to put the setting on brown rice to ensure the proper cooking time.
  • One more tip is that brown rice requires a little more water for cooking to make the finished product more tender.

The thing I like most about using my rice steamer is that I only have to add water and rice, push the button, and walk away. No need for stirring or watching over it. It will cook and automatically switch to ‘warm.’ I can go walk my dog or do a load of laundry, and the rice will be ready for dinner when we are.

Exactly what I was looking for. I recently bought brown rice spring roll wraps through Kroger ship with the idea of using broccoli slaw and a homemade peanut sauce for me and a homemade spicy asian sauce for my niece! I'm looking forward to some of your other recipes I've got saved!

Woops. I see the recipe suggestion in the comments. I made mine with lime juice, garlic, soy sauce, maple syrup, fire peppers and peanut butter. The sauce was great and was just wondering about other sauces.

Sita, the sauce I usually use is the red chili sauce that I purchase. There is a peanut sauce that is good with Thai spring rolls as well. Recipe: 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 4 Tbs peanut butter, 3 Tbsp soy sauce, 2-3 Tbs water, and 1 diced green onion. Pretty tasty!

Terri I made these and they were good, but the rice paper was very soggy and gooey. Any tips? Also, I thought you had a list of ingredients somewhere to make our own sauce and couldn't find that. Am I imagining it?? Thanks. My husband Tom and I enjoyed these for lunch, but I wish I had done what you did and made some rice to go along with them. We were starving. On the plus side, I lost weight which is always a good thing!!

I have made these three times but have trouble turning them over while baking. They tend to fall apart. Any suggestions?

Cara, these Thai Spring Rolls do not require any cooking. Once rolled up, they are meant to be eaten (as is) with a dipping sauce of your choice. Easy peasy! :)
