Mango-Avocado Rolls

Serves 4

Vietnamese rice paper wrappers (also called báhn tráng) are easy to work with once you’ve moistened one or two and gotten a feel for how they soften up. You can also serve these wraps as appetizers by slicing them in half on the bias and serving them standing pointy-end up.
  • ⅔ cup diced avocado
  • 2 Tbs. lime juice
  • 2 tsp. grated lime zest
  • ⅔ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • ½ cup vegan cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup thinly sliced green onions (white and pale green parts)
  • ⅓ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp. chile sauce, such as sriracha
  • 8 8½-inch Vietnamese rice paper wrappers
  • 2 cups alfalfa sprouts
  • 1½ cups thinly sliced fresh mango

1. Combine avocado, lime juice, and lime zest in small bowl. Stir in bell pepper, cream cheese, green onions, cilantro, and chile sauce; set aside.

2. Fill large bowl (9-inch diameter) with warm water. Submerge 1 rice paper wrapper 10 seconds in water, or just until it becomes soft. Remove wrapper to flat work surface, and let rest 30 seconds; it will become more pliable.

3. Spoon scant ¼ cup avocado mixture just below middle of rice paper wrapper, leaving 1-inch border on either side. Top with ¼ cup alfalfa sprouts and 2 to 3 mango slices. Fold bottom of rice paper wrapper up over filling, pressing filling as you go. Fold both sides of rice paper inward. Gently press to seal. Roll up wrapper to top edge. Brush water on top edge, if necessary, to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers, avocado, sprouts, and mango.

These are so delicious! I thought the cream cheese made the avocado mixture a little too rich, so I might cut back on that and add more avocado next time.

I modified this recipe a bit and loved it. I don't like mango so left that out and added water chestnuts and raw peanuts (both chopped finely and added to the avocado mixture) and it is wonderful. My 14 year old son begs me to make them!

Delicious and very easy. Wonderful blend of flavors and the sriracha gives it a nice bit of spiciness. Will make again and again!

This was a very strange blend of flavors and overall was stringy tasting and just odd and I usually love tropical flavors

Excellent and easy to make. My local grocery store was out of alfalfa sprouts so I used baby spinach instead. Yummy. Will definitely make again

I've made these a couple of times, once for a potluck, and they are always a big hit! I think if you want them less sweet, add less mango. Personally, I like them with a little more oompf, so I add more chili sauce. They are great for summertime!

Pretty good - a little sweet - I might use less cream cheese next time.

quick to make, delicious and filling.

These were a big hit! Absolutely delicious and really easy. I used arugula instead of sprouts (couldn't find any) and colorful soy wrappers instead of rice wrappers (all Whole Foods had). I will definitely make these again.
