Congratulations to the winner of my ENLIGHTENED Ice cream giveaway: Valerie M!
Be sure to check your email! & Enjoy your cold ice cream during this crazy heat wave!
This week I have been giving my 100% and going to spin everyday. I am so in love with the endorphin rush that it gives me, and the calorie burn isn’t bad either! I hope that you guys have been scoping out some new workout classes to try this weekend. You may just find your new thangggg. I love motivating you guys with personal posts about my fitness progress and body/weight stuff, but I just can’t get myself to post it along with these gorgeous recipe photos! I feel like those kinds of posts need to be separate, so I’ve set some posts aside next week for updates on how everything is going in the workout world! Right now it’s time for some rabbit food!
I absolutely love all of these bright green veggies! Beautiful!
Tofu Asparagus Spring Rolls
1 spring roll (rice paper) wrap
1 inch strip of firm tofu
6 spears of asparagus
1/2 cucumber, sliced
1/4 medium avocado
1/4 cup arugula
4-5 mint leafs
Sesame Miso Sauce
*Also pairs well with low sodium soy sauce, or tamari if you don’t feel like making sauce!
2 Tbsp tahini
1 Tbsp white miso paste
1 Tbsp agave nectar
1/2 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 tsp grated ginger root
Refrigerate all ingredients beforehand. Wash and cut ingredients for inside the spring roll. Fill a bowl or saucepan with warm water. Begin dipping the spring roll wrap in the water and rotate. Continue gently dipping until the rice paper becomes transparent and limp. Lay the pliable wrap on a piece of cheese cloth or clean kitchen towel. Place the ingredients on the top center of the wrap. Fold the sides in over the filling. Then tightly push the ingredients together folding the top corner over, then roll until completely wrapped. Chop in half or into 6 pieces.
Note: I have found that wrapping the spring roll on a towel is the best way to prevent it from sticking and tearing.
Another Note: The spring rolls are much easier to handle if cut in half vs. small pieces!
