Vegan Vietnamese Spring Rolls

 

Vegan Vietnamese Spring Rolls

These vegan Vietnamese spring rolls are perfect for summer, filled with flavor and crunch. They’re super-easy to make, do not need a stove or oven, and make great appetizers or just a light main course! My kids like to have them with sweet and sour sauce while I like to have them with a whisked crunchy peanut butter, water, and tamari sauce. No matter which dipping sauce you use, these spring rolls are absolutely delicious!
