1 tablespoon pure sesame oil

1 tablespoon ginger root (grated)

Introduction

On days when you are craving a light lunch that will give you a burst of energy and incredible vitamin boost, opt for these fresh spring rolls. They are packed with whole, healthy foods that offer great health benefits: The red cabbage is a great source of vitamin C (even better than citrus), carrots will put your vitamin A levels through the roof and mango promotes brain health and aids digestion. Don't overlook the small additions, either. Rice vinegar not only adds great flavor, it also contains a bunch of amino acids that can help improve your overall health.

Preparation

Cut all the vegetables and leaves into long strips so they can be rolled up.
Prepare the rice paper wrappers. Clean a flat surface and place a wet cloth to form the rolls. Pour some warm water into a large bowl. Dip the rice paper into the warm water for 15-20 seconds (or whatever the package suggests) one sheet at a time. Remove the rice paper from the water and place it flat on the wet cloth.
Starting at the top of the rice paper, place a few sticks of carrot, red pepper and some strips of lettuce, purple cabbage, and mango. Add a few mint leaves. Roll everything up tightly. You can fold in the sides of the roll if you wish.
Prepare the dipping sauce by adding all the ingredients in a food processor (soy, vinegar, sesame oil, orange juice, maple syrup, and peanut butter) and blending them until the sauce is homogenous. Add sesame seeds and a dash of cayenne powder.
Serve the rolls immediately with the dipping sauce.
