Sam Wood Spring Roll Bowl Recipe

This 20 Minute Deconstructed Rice Paper Roll Is All We're Eating This Spring

When it comes to Spring eating, we want meals that are quick, easy, fresh and most importantly aren't going to be responsible for making us fall off the healthy-eating wagon. So, naturally this deconstructed spring roll recipe courtesy of 28 by Sam Wood is pretty much all we want to eat for the remainder of Spring.

With the option to play around with the specific ingredients depending on your preference (and what's in your fridge), this is one weeknight recipe you won't get bored of any time soon.

Everything tastes better deconstructed, no? We've opted to lay everything out in an Instagrammable bowl and crisp up the rice paper rolls for something a little different. Feel free to play around with the ingredients in this bowl, any raw salad veggies will work a treat!
