Instructions

Spring rolls

Place the eggplant sticks into a shallow dish. In a small bowl, stir the 1/water, soy sauce and maple syrup together; then pour over the eggplant and marinade for 1-2 hours.

Heat up your grill and prep the veggies during the last 15 minutes of marinating time. Grill the eggplant on all 4 sides until each one has brown grill marks, and pour the rest of the marinade over the pieces as they grill.

Warm the 1/2 C. of water with the light coconut milk in a medium sauce pan until it is just hotter than luke warm, and turn off the heat.

Dip one sheet of rice paper in the water/coconut milk on each side for 2-3 seconds, then transfer to a small plate.

Place 2-3 pieces of eggplant in the middle of the paper, along with carrot, zucchini, jalapeno and avocado pieces. Add a couple leaves of mint and cilantro to the middle and fold the rice paper like a burrito.

Sauce

Whisk all of the ingredients together until completely smooth, you may need to warm up the almond butter before doing this. Serve!
