Spring Rolls w/ Peanut Sauce by Guest Chef Nanette

You wouldn't guess by looking at them, but these are actually quick and easy, even for a slow cook like me! I made them one night for a dinner party, when I found out more people were coming over, and they only took about 10 minutes to make.

Package rice wrappers
Chopped thai basil
Fresh mint leaves
Chopped fresh cilantro
Grated carrot
Fresh bean sprouts
some people like to add little shrimp, or a meat, like pork or chicken. If you do, cook the meat before hand, and slice into thin strips.

Peanut Sauce/Dip
Crunchy peanut butter
Hoisin sauce

All of these ingredients can be found at your local asian supermarket. I didn't include amounts, because it depends on personal preference.

Fill a large bowl with warm water. Dip one wrapper into the hot water for 1 second to soften.
Lay wrapper flat.In a row across the center, a little of each ingredient, to your taste, leaving about 2 inches uncovered on each side.
Fold uncovered sides inward, then tightly roll the wrapper, beginning at the end with the lettuce.
Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Dipping Sauce
mix equal parts hoisin sauce and peanut butter.
Add water until desired consistency

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
