Coming up with new and exciting recipes for kids to take to school can be tough. Picky eaters, special diets, food allergies....if that’s you, you really need to think outside the box (the lunch box, that is) when you’re making their meals so things don’t get boring for your little ones. For example, I know several kids who, for a variety of reasons, are on gluten free diets these days. That adds a whole creative dynamic to their parents culinary situation. So, I came up with these summer rolls which I think are perfect lunch treat for those who need to avoid gluten.
These rolls are filled with protein and vegetables and then wrapped tightly with a light and airy rice paper that makes them fun for kids to eat. Part of the treat is the nutty Asian-inspired dipping sauce they can dip the rolls in. Kenya likes the sauce so much he always tries to drink it out of the container like a soup. Classy!
Dipping Sauce (makes 1/2 Cup)
1/4 Cup Peanut or Almond Butter
1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
1 Tbsp Warm Water
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth.
