Vegan Spring Rolls Easy Lunch Idea

What are Vietnamese spring rolls?

Vietnamese spring rolls is a dish everyone with Vietnamese parents knows. Vietnamese spring rolls are often mistaken for chả giò (the fried version). While the rolling method is similar, Vietnamese spring rolls taste nothing like the fried version. Vietnamese spring rolls are light to the stomach and have a fresh flavor due to the use of herbs. They’re often served as appetizers in the Western cuisine, but by making a few more rolls you can easily pass spring rolls for a healthy lunch or light dinner. Traditionally, Vietnamese spring rolls are filled with pork and prawns but you can basically fill it when anything you like. Today, I’m sharing my vegan version with you guys. Keep in mind this post is more of a lunch idea rather than a recipe so see this recipe as a guide and inspirationRead more

Vietnamese chicken rolls

When I was little we went to Paris every summer to visit my grandmother and some other relatives. Everytime we went to Paris, we’d visit “Tang Frères” (a big asian supermarket) at least once. The adults would do HOURS (I’m not even kidding…) of grocery shopping and the kids would: wait, get bored, stroll around, get lost, panic and then find out the adults are only one aisle away.
