Vegetable Spring Rolls

I love making vegetable spring rolls. There are times I just need to eat vegetables. I mean lots of vegetables. And my lots, I mean I really just want to eat vegetables and nothing else. I started making these vegetable spring rolls last year as I was going through my clean eating kick.

These are easy to make, tasty and delicious. You can alter the vegetables to match what you have on hand, or you can specifically shop to have everything the recipe calls for. You can also make these in advance, they’ll keep a day or so in the refrigerator.
