Sorry for the neglect, oh internet world!  I’ve still been writing tons o’ vegan recipes, but I’ve been writing them mostly for our university’s newspaper, and the forgetting to take colour photos and share them here too.  That, and sometimes the real world is just too distracting.  Lots o’ pretty colours.

The last recipe I made up for an article was a pretty cool chocolate dessert biscuit recipe focusing on fair-trade ingredients.  It may end up here eventually.  It’s awesome because it’s not an overly sweet recipe, but delightfully cakey in texture.

However, on to what I really want to write about.  This simple variation on fresh rolls is just too yummy to pass up posting.  I kinda was thinking of the flavours in the Curry Sunrise rice bowl at 13th Ave Coffeehouse, when it occurred to me that this would transfer wonderfully to a salad roll.  And it does. If you’re feeling more traditional, you can check outmy past fresh roll recipe, which was also written after forgetting that I had a blog for awhile.  I’m also thinking  might need to tackle dessert fresh rolls again someday.  I tried a Vegetarian Times one once (ps-needs veganizing, but not hard), but the sauce that the recipe used was disgustingly sweet, and I don’t know if I was too thrilled at how they treated the jasmine risotto in it (I’ve done better adding savoury flavours and mushroosm and making a supper dish out of jasmine tea risotto).

Curry Rolls

Salad Rolls and Simple Coconut Curry Sauce

for the rolls:

– lettuce

– tomato slices

– cucumber strips

– avocado strips

– if you have some, a little cooked tofu

– sprouts

– rice paper wrappers

Just prep your veggies, shred the lettuce, boil some water so that you can soak each rice paper for about 30 seconds, place veg on wrapper and roll very carefully like a burrito.  I like to make two or three large ones for myself, but you can also get small rice paper wrappers that require you to make more.

for the sauce:

– coconut milk

– curry powder

– a little lemon juice or lime juice

Blend all those together.  Too simple, yet it hits two of my biggest craving foods lately, coconut and curry.
