Fresh thai spring rolls and peanut dipping sauce (peanut free)

freshthai (50)

We always order these when we get thai food from our favorite thai restaurant. I think I figured out how to make an almost identical replica of my own and it is really very easy to make. Although I need to practice folding the tapioca wrap to make them extra “pretty”. I don’t eat peanuts because they are full of aflotoxins which put you at risk for liver cancer and really mess with your digestive flora too.  This can be eaten as a salad too instead of a wrap.The sauce turned out really good- my kids try to steal spoonfuls of it while I’m not looking.

Fresh thai spring roll

1 tapioca wrap(I get mine from the asian market)

1 handful of fresh cilantro

1-2 tablespoons cooked shrimp

small handful shredded cabbage

2 tablespoons large carrot shreds

small handful mung sprouts

squirt of lime juice (optional)

peanut dipping sauce

1 cup ground dry roasted sunflower seeds

3 tablespoon fresh orange juice

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon gluten free tamari

2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger

1 tablespoon raw honey

To make the wrap pliable you need to dip it into very hot water for a few seconds and then add all your ingredients to the center and wrap it up! Enjoy!

Easy shrimp tacos with mango pineapple salsa


I have made these a few times and they are one of my new favorite meals. They are really easy to throw together when you need to feed people in a hurry. I am leaving for hawaii in 2 days so I may or may not post a recipe while in hawaii. It depends on if I happen to be doing much cooking while I’m there.

Shrimp tacos

Cook shrimp in coconut oil and add a splash of lime juice,and a pinch of cumin, coriander, chili powder, and garlic. Take store bought or homemade plain salsa and add chopped mango and crushed pineapple. Add the shrimp to a warmed corn tortilla and top with mango/pineapple salsa, shredded cabbage, fresh cilantro, and fresh avocado. And don’t forget a squirt of lime at the end too!
