The other day I was craving summer rolls so I decided to make some as a meal prep snack. My girls and I used to make them a lot but I never realized how high in carbs they can be. I decided to make them a little healthier including the delicious peanut sauce that’s typically served to dip them in. The wraps I used contained 14 gm of carbs & 16 gm of calories per two wraps I didn’t add the rice noodles that are usually included in the wraps to minimize the amount of carbs. I filled them with micro greens, various veggies, and a delicious fresh ginger garlic and turmeric chicken that I air fried and also shrimp. It was delicious and flavorful but you can fill them with anything you like! I will list the amount of veggies I used but this will vary for you, depending on how much veggies you choose to use.
I will include the recipes for how I seasoned the chicken and shrimp but you can use any protein you choose or even tofu if you prefer. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can pan or oven roast the chicken.
For the peanut dipping sauce, I used almond butter instead but if you can eat peanuts, feel free to use peanut butter.
For the purpose of this recipe, I am showing how I wrapped the shrimp roll. The process is the same regardless of your filling.
The trick to not getting a mushy sheet is to not over drench it in water. Dip don’t drench!
