Fruit Spring Rolls - Secret Recipe Club



I became a really huge fan of spring rolls last year.  I tried them for a first time in a Thai restaurant, then decided to try making my own and made the Butternut Squash Almond Rice Paper Rolls and those became my very favorite!

While browsing my assigned blog for this month's Secret Recipe Club reveal I came across Fruit Spring Rolls.  I knew then and there I would be trying a fruit spring roll in my near future!  This last month I dug into the blog called Sustainable Cooking for One written by Stephanie Bostic who also happens to have a cookbook out titled "One Bowl:  Simple Healthy Recipes for One".  Stephanie has several interesting recipes that are great to have on hand for those days when it is just me eating in the house!

I adapted the recipe some to add noodles to the picture.  I feel like I need these noodles in order to have a spring roll.  They just add that "sumthin' sumthin'" to the whole thing for me.  I also went with a citrus dipping sauce.  The original recipe for Stephanie's recipe can be found by clicking the link below.  I hope you will enjoy!

Beautiful photos! I'm going to have to try the sweet lime sauce. It sounds delightful!

(I never use the noodles because somehow I never seem to have them in stock... but they do make them into a more substantial meal!)

Thanks for the cookbook mention too ;-). It will be out next week, on Amazon.

Fruit spring rolls are really good, and your version looks fab! - I made them once with fresh mango, ice cream and crushed chocolate cookies, with minty Greek yoghurt as dipping sauce - that was really good too!

Those dessert spring rolls look great. I frequently have trouble with rice noodles and wraps - mine tend to fall apart from being over- or under-cooked.
