While spring rolls might sound facy, they can easily be made from whatever is left in your fridge. Just change the two slices of bread for a rice sheet and then roll it up with whatever you have on hand. I think the secret to a yummy spring roll lies in the sauce, and i’ve got a great one for you.

Also, if you don’t have marinated ginger (which can be found in the sushi & asian section in grocery stores), simply use fresh ginger instead.

You can always make the rolls ahead of time, then wrap them to keep fresh. It makes for a delicious cold lunch at the office.
