– Rice paper wrapper – Shredded lettuce – Sliced cucumber – Julienne carrot – Sliced bell pepper – Cooked shrimp or tofu – Fresh herbs (mint, basil, cilantro) – Rice vermicelli noodle – Dipping sauce (hoisin, peanut, or soy)
Prep Your Ingredient- Start by preparing all your ingredients. Slice, shred, and julienne your veggies, cook the shrimp or tofu, and cook the rice vermicelli noodles according to the package instructions.
Soften the Rice Paper- Dip each rice paper wrapper into a bowl of warm water for about 10 seconds until it becomes pliable. Lay it flat on a clean surface.
Assemble Your Spring Roll- Place a small amount of lettuce, cucumber, carrots, bell peppers, herbs, noodles, and your choice of protein onto the softened rice paper.
Roll It Up- Fold the sides of the rice paper over the ingredients, then tightly roll it up from the bottom, just like a burrito.
Air Fry Your Spring Roll- Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C). Place the spring rolls in a single layer in the basket, making sure they're not touching. Spray them lightly with cooking oil.
Cook Until Crispy- Air fry the spring rolls for about 8-10 minutes, flipping them halfway through, until they're golden brown and crispy.
Serve and Enjoy- Once your healthy spring rolls are cooked to perfection, serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, and enjoy this guilt-free snack!
