Hi Bloggie Friends!  How was your weekend?   Any fun stories to share?  On Saturday as I mentioned, we went on a nice, long, family power walk through Balboa Park and then I met up with my friend Amber, who I hadn’t seen in 10 months.  Amber and Jenny (who I mentioned before) are my two best friends here in San Diego and it was awesome seeing Amber and catching up on 10 months of life in 2 hours! (and Scott had Skylar so it was a no-holds barred catch-up session!)

Back in the day, Amber and I used to get into some major shenanigans together and had no problems having more drinks than we could ever drink being sent over to us when we went out together.  And we loved every second of it.  What can I say, we created quite a commotion and had a tons of fun toying with our prey drink buyers.  Insert evil laugh.  Ahh, the memories!  Can’t wait to hit the town with Amber, soon!  Maybe this weekend if she’s not too busy going out of town and being footloose and fancy free!

Today I had an extremely busy and fun day!  Farmer’s Market, the Gym, Family Time, a Power Walk, lots of cooking.  Or shall I say un-cooking.   I didn’t get my first shower of the day in until 6pm if that tells you that I pretty much hit the ground running and didn’t stop.  I love weekend summer days!

Moving Onto Some Food…
You may remember me complaining a few months back that I could not find rice paper wrappers anywhere in Phoenix and had a major fresh spring roll craving Well, 9 months later, I finally took care of it.  I found these at the regular grocery store here in San Diego.  In Phoenix no stores from the regular grocery store to Whole Foods carried them.

 Note to the gluten sensitive:  The Whole Foods in Phoenix (and perhaps other cities) carries some wrappers that look like rice paper wrappers, but they are not.  The first ingredient is Wheat Gluten.  Caveat Emptor for those avoiding gluten and a reminder to always read the labels! 

Assemble your fillings and a bowl of warm water.  Dunk each one for about 15-20 seconds, and wrap!

Sliced vegetables, bowl of water and bag of baby spring mix

I used This 8-Ball Squash from the Farmer’s Market as part of my filling.  Also carrots, red peppers, and spring mix lettuce.  I skipped any kind of noodles or tofuDidn’t plan that far in advance, truth be told.

 You can store extras in a container for 2-3 days in the fridge in my experience before they get a little slimy and funky

Next up, make your Peanut Sauce (Garlic, Added Salt, and Soy Free!)

Ingredients to make 2 Minute Peanut Sauce

Averie’s 2 Minute Peanut Sauce (Garlic, Added Salt, and Soy Free!)
1/3 C Peanut Butter
1/4 C Maple/Agave Blend (in whatever ratios you have/prefer)
1/4 C Sesame Oil (this is the Key Ingredient.  Do not skimp on this!)
1/4 C Apple Cider Vinegar ACV (if you don’t have ACV, use orange juice or regular vinegar)
1 Tsp Ginger Powder (optional)

Whisk to Combine
Ingredients in jar with whisk
Finished Peanut Sauce

Shake it Up if you Wish or use a Blender of your choice.  I personally didn’t feel like washing anything extra so the whisk method works.

Will keep in the fridge for a week+.  It won’t last that long though!


Slather it On & Devour!

I’ve also made This other Peanut Sauce Recipe in the Past.  It’s fairly similar to today’s recipe, I used my Vita for it, but that’s not imperative.

You could swap out the Cucumber for zucchini and wrap those.  Cukes or zukes, doesn’t matter.

And I’m happy that many of you return things you don’t like or aren’t going to work out for you.  Don’t suffer with something you don’t like or won’t use is my motto!

Persistence.  Seems that about half of you feel you are, and the other half is working on finding that side to your personality.

More on my Scoby and Kombucha making efforts as the week plays out.  Tomorrow I am actually going to pick up another Scoby Mother from another lady.  So I will have two batches going with two different Mothers.

  1. The sauce was delicious!!! My whole family love it, even the non-vegan ones :) I am definetly making this again.

    1. Yay! Glad it was a hit! Thanks for making it, telling me about it, and that you plan to make it again!

  2. Hi,

    I live near Phoenix as well, and while no regular grocery stores carry rice paper wrappers, there are quite a few grocery stores carrying them that cater to various asian cuisines. (Which you may already know)

    Here’s the most complete list I could find:
    + there’s another Lee Lee’s on Dobson Rd., south of the 60 in Chandler.

    I usually stock up on all my favorite indian, chinese, etc ingredients + take advantage of the inexpensive produce when I go. It more than makes the extra trip worth it.

  3. I just stumbled upon your blog. The recipes look fantastic! I’ll be making the spring rolls this week and coming back to check for more good stuff. Thanks!

  4. I’ve been on a roll with spring rolls lately, so I’m so glad I found this among your old posts! I’m going to give your peanut sauce a try (I use a recipe that my friends have actually dragged me to their houses to make for them–I know that you’re always on the lookout for variations, so I hope you don’t mind if I share it with you! Thank you so much for sharing!

  5. OK, I am most definitely trying out these spring rolls, I have always wanted to, put can’t seem to find them at whole foods :( . Love that there loaded w/ veggies and easy to pack for on the go; I also love the idea of the peanut sauce… yum!
