This recipe is loose and I can never really predict how many spring rolls it’s going to make, so just have a few extra on hand.



  • 1/2 head green cabbage, approximately 4-5 cups shredded
  • 68 carrots
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • Juice from 1 large lime
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1012 rice paper wrappers


  1. Using a veggie peeler, shave carrots into fine strips. Dice green onions halfway through the green part and chop cilantro. In a large bowl combine the carrot strips, green onions, and cilantro. Squeeze lime juice over everything and toss until everything is coated and mixed together.
  2. Set up a rolling station with shredded cabbage, carrots, rice papers, a dish of hot water larger enough to hold the spring rolls, and a cutting board.
  3. Soak the rice paper for 10-15 seconds (you don’t want it too soft when taking it out of the water but pliable enough to roll.) Place rice paper on a cutting board and load with cabbage and carrot mixture. Roll, tuck, and fold in sides as you go. Continue with remaining ingredients.
  4. Once done slice in half and serve. These are great on their own or dunked in a peanut sauce..
