This week’s theme has been rolls, and you’re going to rock today’s roll! We are making spinach artichoke dip vegan egg rolls. Actually, this started out as a just a super delicious spinach artichoke dip, but then we thought, hmmm - what if we packaged this goodness up into a roll? Seems natural, eh? Here’s our recipe. We’re adamant about all of our Quarantine Show recipes having no more than 7 ingredients, so, we’re taking this recipe and kicking a few ingredients to the curb. If you are cooking with us, these are the wrappers we are using.

As the warm weather approaches and we’ve been asked for more raw food recipes, this is a perfect opportunity to do an episode on spring rolls! Don’t be afraid of that thin little paper, and no need to overthink the stuffing. Use what you’ve got. We’ll explore many opportunities. Also, in case you missed our Sunday episode of Easy Peanut Sauce, we will be re-purposing that for these rolls.

It looks a little intimidating, but this little block of fermented beans can be more digestible than tofu and tempeh is a nutrient-dense soy product with a high amount of protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals. It may decrease cholesterol levels, oxidative stress and appetite while improving bone health. Tempeh also contains prebiotics, which may improve digestive health and reduce inflammation. Sooo - let’s dig in!
