Tuna Summer Rolls


¼ cucumber

½ carrot

½ avocado

Juice of ½ lemon

1 scallion

¾ C. (75 g) bean sprouts

Two 6-ounce (160 g) tins of tuna in water, drained

½ C. (50 g) roasted cashews, coarsely chopped

5 C. (100 g) loosely packed spinach

½ bunch of cilantro, leaves only

6 rice paper wrappers


3 T. peanut butter

4 T. soy sauce

2 T. sesame oil

Juice of 1 lime


To make the rolls: Deseed the cucumber and cut into strips. Put them in a bowl and set aside. Cut the carrot into thin strips, put in a separate bowl, and also set aside. Scoop the avocado flesh out of its skin and slice into slivers. Put in a bowl with some lemon juice to stop them from discoloring and set aside. Trim the scallion and cut into matchsticks, put in a bowl, and set aside. Put the bean sprouts, tuna, cashews, spinach, and cilantro in separate bowls. Arrange all the ingredients in front of you. Fill a large bowl with hot water and briefly soak one of the rice paper wrappers. Carefully spread it on a plate. Start by placing spinach leaves in the middle, and then top with a few strips of cucumber, carrot, and avocado before scattering on some scallion, bean sprouts, tuna, roasted cashews, and cilantro. Use only a little bit of each—pile on too much and the wrapper will tear. Carefully fold in the ends of the wrapper, then roll it up and cut in half. Repeat until all the rice paper wrappers are filled. To make the dip: Stir together the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, and lime juice with a fork. Serve the summer rolls with the dip.
