I love the days that I get to hide away in my kitchen, and challenge myself to cook something new and creative. So, this week, I taught myself how to roll imitation crab and avocado spring rolls with red cabbage.

At first, I thought the thin skins were going to be too delicate and difficult to manipulate, but with a steady hand, time and patience, I was amazed at what I had achieved.

I was able to take three delicious, nutritious and flavorful foods and wrap them into a delicate skin, as tightly as I could, so that the three flavors can be enjoyed in one, single bite.

After I rolled my first spring roll, I was delighted, and rolled more.

Making spring rolls at home is a fun activity and challenge in the kitchen, but most of all they are a healthy and delicious appetizer or snack for you and your entire family to indulge in.

Intructions:

  1. Soak spring roll skin in warm water.
  2. Allow skin to dry.
  3. Place cabbage, crab, and avocado in the center of the wrap.
  4. Carefully tuck the ends of the wrap in and roll (like a burrito).
  5. Serve and eat cold.
  6. Enjoy!
