Decadent Crab Spring Rolls

What did you do for Valentine’s Day? Get into the restaurant rush? Buy each other expensive gifts? No thanks! We went for a run out on the Land’s End trail, in the 75 degree weather (!) then came home and cooked! My fellow actually fell asleep while I was prepping this spring roll treat, but then he went up to the grill and did some cooking too 🙂 This was a special treat with fresh crab meat. I made several with the crab, but a few using edamame in place of the crabmeat, so that is the vegan option here, either that or some tofu! I enjoy seafood from time to time, and this was a decadent, romantic treat 🙂

Sauce:
Juice 1 large lemon
Juice 2 cuties
1Tbs vinegar
1Tbs liquid aminos
1Tbs almond butter
2Tbs peanut butter
Warm water 2Tbs
Crushed red pepper
1/4 diced jalapeño

Blend or whisk together sauce ingredients, and set aside. Assemble spring rolls using:

Spring roll wrapper
Greens (raw spinach)
Cucumber, sliced thin
Green onion, sliced thin
Bell pepper, sliced thin
Carrot, sliced thin
Fresh basil
Fresh cilantro
Avocado, sliced thin
Crab/edamame

Dip in the sauce and enjoy!

Believe it or not, we actually did eat all that…. 😀
