A Younger Sexier You. Now that statement draws me right in on the cover of the newest book from Tosca Reno, the bestselling author of The Eat-Clean Diet. Your Best Body Now wants you to look and feel fabulous at any age.
SPRING ROLL INGREDIENTS
2 packages rice-paper spring roll wrappers (20 wrappers)
1 cup grated carrot
¼ cup bean sprouts
1 cucumber, julienned
1 red bell pepper, stem and seeds removed, julienned
4 green onions finely chopped, use only the green part
1. Soak one rice-paper wrapper in a large bowl of hot water until softened.
2. Place a pinch each of carrots, sprouts, cucumber, bell pepper and green onion on the wrapper toward the bottom third of the rice paper.
3. Fold ends in and roll tightly to enclose filling.
4. Repeat with remaining wrappers. Chill before serving.
DIPPING SAUCE INGREDIENTS
1 clove garlic
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 tablespoons coarsely grated peeled fresh ginger
¼ cup rice wine vinegar (nor seasoned)
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
¼ teaspoon toasted sesame oil
Pinch each of coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons water
1. Combine garlic, carrot, ginger, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and both types of pepper in a food processor and blend until smooth.
2. With machine running, add vegetable oil and then water through the feed tube in a slow, steady stream.
3. Chill and serve sauce with spring rolls.
TIP: Rice paper is tricky to work with, but remember if it rips you can often enclose the tear. Keep trying! The dipping sauce is fabulous with almost anything. I like to use it as a refreshing alternative to hummus.
