Vegetable Spring Rolls with Sweet Cilantro Sauce

Recipe posted in: Flex™ Meals & Snacks, Snacks, Healthy Sides & Snacks, Lunches & Dinners

These spring rolls are packed with nutrient-dense, vibrant veggies (and mouthwatering mango!) and bursting with flavor. We love that they’re so versatile—enjoy them as a between-meal snack or as a side to any of your favorite Nutrisystem meals. Our favorite thing about these spring rolls, though, is that you aren’t limited to using only the veggies listed in this healthy recipe. Pack in some red peppers and leafy greens like we did for an added nutrient boost, or add a little crunch to your spring roll with some shredded carrots. Some of our vegetarian readers have even suggested adding in a half cup of steamed tofu or unsalted edamame for an added protein boost (a half cup of either of these options counts as one PowerFuel on Nutrisystem). Either way, we’re pretty sure you’ll love these spring rolls. And don’t even get us started on that sauce!
