Veggie Summer Rolls

  • Makes 12 rolls
  • PREP: 10 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

Fresh, easy, and vegetarian friendly!

When we made shrimp summer rolls for Chrissy’s first book, they were a big hit. The delicate rice paper filled with herbs and noodles is so light and delicious, you could probably eat six of them and not have to take a nap. So many people asked us how to make them without the shrimp, so I figured I would share my special savory mushroom filling in case you want to go meatless.
