Spring rolls

I forgot about spring rolls. I haven't eaten them in ages, don't really know why.

So I made them last night for dinner.

Boil water, pour over bean threads, drain when soft.
Dip the wrappers (they are called Bahn Trang) in warm water.
Place some cilantro and or lemon basil leaves on the wrapper
In the middle, place a pinch of noodles (perhaps 1/8 of a cup).
Top noodles with cucumber sticks, green onions, string beans and or snap peas.
You can add leftover meat or nuts for protein.

Fold wrapper over filling, then fold in the two sides and roll up the wrapper. If you can stop yourself from eating them long enough to make a plateful, take a paper towel and dampen it with a bit of water. Wring it out well and use it to cover the rolls while they are resting on the plate.

For the peanut sauce:
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tsp. either Sriracha or Frank's hot sauce

Spoon into the rolls. Enjoy...
