Rainbow Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Rainbow Rolls with Peanut Sauce | The Mother Cooker

I thought I would inject a touch of brightness in to let’s do lunch this Friday. These rainbow rolls are super simple to put together and the peanut sauce that goes along side, or spread in your wrap is super addictive. All that goodness balanced out with a little full fat peanut butter. Crunchy, salty, sweet, the perfect balance to cheer up these grey Friday’s we’ve been having lately. Let’s hope the real spring makes it’s appearance soon, because I for one am cold.

Now these rolls are completely vegetarian and can be completely vegan if you skip the honey for agave nectar. Although the chopping and batoning may seem a little long winded, it is so worth it in the end. I hope you enjoy them as much as I loved photographing them. All that colour just makes me so happy. Have a great weekend!
