These simple favourites might be fiddly to make, but after a few tries you’ll quickly get the hang of it. It’s a delicious lunchtime snack to eat while on your feet at any event. We added prawns, but you can also pack them chock full of vegetables.
Peanut allergy concerns? Substitute cashew butter for peanut butter. Any thinly shaved vegetable, from radishes to grated carrots, can be added or substituted.
In small bowl, combine dipping sauce ingredients, except hot water. Whisk until smooth, adding a little hot water as needed for easy dipping. Set aside.
In fine-mesh sieve, thoroughly rinse quinoa. In small saucepan, place rinsed quinoa along with oil and sauteu0301 for 2 minutes to toast. Add boiling water, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes, or until quinoa begins to sprout and water has been absorbed. Remove from heat and stir in ponzu sauce. Transfer quinoa to baking sheet and spread out to dry.
Remove prawn tails. In saucepan with boiling water, add prawns and poach, covered, for 5 minutes, until they turn pink. Drain and blot dry. Set aside.
To assemble rolls, pour hot water into very large bowl. Immerse single rice paper into water for about 15 to 20 seconds, remove, and then gently spread out on large, damp cutting board. Paper is very fragile (it may take more than one attempt to make these without tearing).
On lower half of single damp rice paper, place 1 lettuce leaf and top with a scoop of quinoa. Layer some zucchini and carrot on top. Scatter with a few basil leaves, then 1 green onion.
From the edge nearest to you, begin gently rolling up, tucking in sides while encasing quinoa in lettuce leaf, stopping halfway. Line 3 prawns along roll, and then continue to roll up, sealing tightly. Place seam side down on serving dish. Repeat with remaining rice papers and ingredients.
Serve immediately with Peanut Dipping Sauce.
Alternatively, cover with damp paper towel, overwrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for a couple of hours or until ready to serve.

Take the time to enjoy the delicate scent of cardamom and ginger wafting through your kitchen as you prepare this.

Spanish-inspired flavours of almond and orange and a good punch of protein make this pudding a delicious and nutritious breakfast, snack, or dessert.

Breaking with tradition, think of this as a guise of tabbouleh salad with staying power, thanks to the addition of hearty sorghum and fibre-rich navy beans. It also ages fairly well, so it serves as a make-ahead meal that can keep for up to 3 days. A perfect plant-based option for weekday lunches.
This versatile salad featuring chickpeas in a bright, fragrant dressing, holds well in the fridge. Make it in advance or keep it for leftovers. Nigella seeds, also known as kalonji, lend a sweet, nutty flavour with an ever-so-slightly bitter edge that pairs perfectly with sweet potato’s sweetness. Chickpeas please! Chickpeas are a great source of dietary fibre; just 1 cup (250 mL) contains 42 percent of the recommended daily allowance. They’re also a very good source of manganese, which is important for calcium absorption and blood sugar regulation.
