Spring Rolls

In this episode of Gluten Free Tasty, Jenne Claiborne shows you how to have fun in the kitchen by making spring rolls. Traditionally, spring rolls are unhealthy because they are fried, but Jenne's are both healthy and tasty. The filling contains marinated tempeh with crudite, red bell pepper, carrots, and they are topped with a perfect tahini orange dipping sauce.

 

 

Ingredients
  • 4 brown rice paper wrappers
  • 1 cup basil, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced in strips
  • 1 pack of tempeh (cut into four or five pieces, then halved)
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle chili powder
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked
  • 2 carrots, julienned or thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon gluten free soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Juice of one orange
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
Method
To make the tempeh: Stir together ¼ cup soy sauce, ¼ cup vinegar, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1 tablespoon chili powder, and pour over tempeh. Allow the tempeh to marinate for at least one hour. To make the sauce: Add orange juice, tahini, sesame oil, rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup to a bowl, and stir well, until smooth. Add water to thin if necessary. Once it has marinated, saute tempeh in a skillet on medium high heat in olive oil. Cook each side for approximately 2 minutes. Allow to cool before using in rice paper wraps. Wet one brown rice paper roll and place on a plate to soften. After 1-2 minutes, start filling the roll with rice, basil, carrots, pepper and tempeh. Fold ends up, and roll to close. Repeat with remaining rolls. Garnish with black sesame seeds.
