Did you know you can easily make spring rolls at home? My version has a Greek twist and is served with Tzatziki sauce.
For someone who loves spring rolls as much as I do, it’s surprising that I’ve never made them at home before. Those cute little parcels look like they could be a lot of work, but in reality,they are quite easy to assemble. I deviated from the traditional Vietnamese version I love so much, and created something a little more unique. My version is Greek inspired, with chicken, Greek seasonings, feta and served with tzatziki sauce. Of course, it wouldn’t be a spring roll without the classic ingredients such as carrots and cabbage, which actually work remarkable well with the Greek flavors.
If you think spring rolls are difficult, tedious,or impossible to make at home, your sadly mistaken. Your negative assumptions are only holding you back, my friend! Trust me when I say, they are very easy to make. And further more, they are entirely customizable. You can add pretty much any veggie or meat that tickles your fancy. For me, I was lovin’ the idea of chicken and feta so I gave it a try and was blow away by the results. There are a trove of textures happening within the crispy, crunchy shell, and they are bursting with flavor. The feta adds an unmistakable tang and saltiness, while the cabbage lends a sweet crunch. It all works so well together.
While the Vietnamese version is something I crave far too often to admit, I think my new version will be my go-to option. Plus, by making then at home, I won’t have to overpay for a small plate at my fave Vietnamese restaurant as often.
