Sexy little things these are. You will sigh, in shear culinary delight. Makes 8 spring rolls

  • 1/4 Cup wasabi paste
  • 8 [ 8 inch] round dried rice - paper wrappers.

Dissolve the miso in 2 Tbsp of warm water. Mix in the rice wine, set aside.

For the filling : Cut Asparagus spears in half. Heat walnut oil in a large pan over medium-high heat, swirl to coat pan. Add shiitake mushrooms; saute until softened (1 minute or so). Add asparagus spears;saute until heated through. Stir in miso mixture. Remove from heat; cool.

Assembling the Roll : Fill a medium sized bowl with warm water. Dip one of the wrappers in the water for 15 seconds or until softened. Carefully transfer to a dry work space. Spread about 1 Tbsp wasabi paste lengthwise just below the center of the wrapper. Top the wasabi with 2 Tbsp of the filling in an even horizontal mound. Roll up the rice paper to form a tight cylinder , folding in the sides about half way.

vegan way of life - for health and respect for the environment, respect for others' lives and suffering. The more so because it is very useful for the human body.
