Exclusive Elsas Wholesome Life Recipe #3!!!

Rainbow Fruity Rice Paper Rolls

Rice paper rolls originate from Vietnam, but they are gaining popularity across the world and particularly in the foodie world. They are a bit like spring rolls, except much healthier as they are fresh not fried, and often much bigger too. Ingredients inside rice paper rolls are usually raw, so they are a great way to bulk in some veggies. You can add cooked tofu, mushrooms and noodles to make them more filling.

Rice paper rolls make a perfect dish to pack for a summer picnic on the beach with friends, awesome finger food if you are hosting a dinner party, and even an excellent option to pack for lunches the next day. Since the papers are made from rice, they are also gluten free, so they can easily cater for any intolerances or allergies. The addition of fruit to these ones make them super pretty to look at, you could even fool kids into eating salad with this trick! I have also included an easy dipping sauce recipe, but they also go great dipped in tamari soy sauce or sweet chilli.

Also, whenever I am making rice paper rolls I always find a have a random assortment of cut up veggies and noodles left over at the end, if I have run out of rice paper or I don’t need to make anymore, rather than throwing the left over ingredients out I throw them in a container, mix them around and drizzle some of the dipping sauce over the top and store in the fridge as a fresh salad for tomorrow’s lunch!

Nutritional facts!

Adding some cooked rice noodles adds bulk to the rolls to fill you up for longer

Pan fried tofu and edamame beans give this dish more protein which will also make them more filling. Protein is also essential to help us build and restore muscle, especially important for all us young and active girls.

The dipping sauce contains 100% natural peanut butter, peanuts are rich in mono-unsaturated fats, we need these healthy fats to help us absorb other nutrients, produce hormones and keep our levels of fats in our blood healthy. (plus peanut butter tastes amazing!!)

Eating a rainbow of fruit and vegetables each day ensures you are getting a wide variety of different vitamins and minerals. Having them fresh in these rolls means you will be getting the full benefits. As my motto goes; Eat More Plants!

All of the ingredients I have used are optional, you can use as many of these fruits and vegetables or add different types. They are a good way to use up any left-over veggies or fruit in the fridge.

 

Recipe:

GF, DF, V

makes approximately 12-14 rolls

 

Ingredients:

12 rice paper wrappers

150 grams thin rice noodles (vermicelli) [cooked per packet instructions]

100g firm tofu [sliced and lightly pan fried in sesame oil]

¼ cup edamame beans [defrosted and removed from pod]

(see note)

1 carrot [grated with a julienne peeler]

½ capsicum [finely sliced]

1 cup lettuce (any variety) [shredded finely]

1 cup bean sprouts

1 mushrooms [sliced finely]

1 spring onion [sliced finely]

1/3 cucumber [sliced finely]

1 cup red cabbage [sliced finely]

1 avocado [sliced finely]

4-5 strawberries [sliced finely]

½ kiwi fruit [sliced finely]

¼ cup pomegranate seeds

½ cup herbs (coriander and mint are my favs)

1 round slice of dragon fruit [diced]

 

Note: Edamame beans are soy beans I buy frozen from my asian supermarket, if you can’t find them just add extra tofu (they are what tofu is made from)

Dipping sauce:

2 tbsp natural peanut butter

2 tbsp tamari soy sauce

juice of 1 lime

2 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp sesame seeds

water: until reaches desired consistency

optional: chilli flakes to taste

 

How to make:

Follow instructions beside each vegetable and fruit for how to prepare. Arrange all of the ingredients on a big chopping board/plate and have handy for constructing the rolls.
Run a rice paper wrapper under cool running water- just enough to completely wet each side (I sometimes like to wet my hands and wipe them over the bench to lightly wet it) place it on the clean wet bench/surface.
First thing you want to lay down is the ingredient you want showing in the roll. For example, if I want the roll to display strawberry slices, I lay them down then cover them with a pile of different veggies, noodles, herbs and tofu/edamame. You don’t want to overfill as they might break when your rolling them, sometimes it just requires some patience and practice until you work out the perfect amount of filling and the best way to roll them. For me, I have found what works best is making a pile of around ½ to ¾ of a cup of filling ingredients, lined down the centre, then I carefully lift the bottom and fold it over, followed by one of the sides, then the top, and then I roll the whole roll over once or twice to seal the final edge. Place it on a plate or baking tray, be careful not to let the made up rolls touch each-other, or you might not get them apart again.
Repeat with the remaining rice paper wrappers (always wet the rice paper wrapped directly before making each one- if you wet them all at the beginning they become too soft and will just tear)
To make the dipping sauce: add all ingredients to a jar, seal it and shake.
Serve whole, or slice into bite sized pieces, dip in the sauce and enjoy your healthy rainbow rolls!

"ALIENS WAS HERE" FT. NOA DEANE, OZZIE WRIGHT, BALARAM STACK, MITCH COLEBORN, RYAN BURCH
ALIENS WAS HERE IS A VEECO PRODUCTION STARRING THE ELITE VOLCOM SURF TEAM. WE SETTLED IN BALI FOR FIVE WEEKS AND THE BOYS ENCOUNTERED MORE THAN JUST ALIENS! This is a true story based around the Volcom surf team's exploration to Indonesia. We rented a house in Bali, Indonesia and invited every team rider from all over the globe. The plan? Well, there was no plan. We settled in a luxurious villa in Canngu for five weeks and the boys encountered more than they bargained for. From our top lords scoring a secret slab to our alienated youth shifting heads, this film will leave you with a fine dosage of yet another Volcom classic! STARRING: Ozzie Wrong Noa Deane Mitch Coleborn Balaram Stack Ryan Burch Andrew Doheny Nate Tyler FEATURING: Nate Tyler, Mauro Diaz, Pat Schmidt, Miguel Tudela, Leon Glatzer, Gony Zubizarreta, Harry Timson, William Aliotti, Guy Sato, Shun Murakami, Muklis Anwar, Hayden Rodgers, Nolan Rodgers, Hagan Johnson, Cole Sandman, Santiago Hart, Kobi Clements, Jarvis Earle, Keanu Taylor DIRECTED by Jimmy "Jazz" James PRODUCED by Richie Olivares, Tom Carey, Brad Dougherty, Matt Bemrose  FILMED by Jimmy "Jazz" James, Nate Leal, Scott Stinnett, Matt Tromberg, Tom Carey ART by Ozzie Wright A HAZY RECOLLECTION OF STRANGE ENCOUNTERS DOCUMENTED BY RICHIE OLIVARES: Ozzie was on a painting craze in Bali. He was tagging "Aliens Was Here" all over town. He even painted his face for each surf and I think it scared everyone off in the line up, which resulted in heaps of waves! Ozzie Wrong transforming Uluwatu's racetrack into Planet Zorb. RICHIE OLIVARES: "Believe it or not, but this car was a rental! I think it gave us good luck and it became a wave magnet. We had to pay for the car to be repainted when we gave it back, but it was totally worth it. Many would say that it upped the value of the car." OBLIVION STONEYS BOARDSHORTS - GET YOURS HERE Spotted the first extraterrestrial of the trip. "It was the first time I'd ever seen an elephant in person and it was insane. The Zoo keeper loved rock n' roll!" -Mauro Mauro Diaz MACAW MOD BOARDSHORTS ANDREW DOHENY: "I never thought I'd ever get that close to an elephant! It was like a CGI or something." Andrew "Droid" Doheny with a quick cutty, feeling loose like he's back home surfing 5-4. William Aliotti is a sneaky little Frenchman who loves to get barreled and have a good time. He spent two months in Bali this year and by the looks of that smile you can tell he had an excellent time! Frenchman William Aliotti joined the rest of the aliens and scored big time. MAG VIBES STONEYS BOARDSHORTS GONY ZUBIZARRETA: "I forgot my travel bag in Lisbon airport at the x-ray machine just before flying to Bali, so I had to borrow shorts and shirts from William, Leon and Miguel (thanks boyz). We had to divide the group and the goofy footers went to Java, so we went to Yoyo's! I really enjoyed the trip to Sumbawa with Droid, Mauro and Pat. The guys were ripping! It was impressive to see the talent and clean surfing of Mauro, the crazy different approach of Droid on every wave riding weird boards, and the power and pop of Pat, especially on his twin fin." "BASICALLY, WE JUST SURFED OUR BRAINS OUT FOR A WEEK AND THEN HAD A LITTLE GOODBYE PARTY IN CANGGU TO FINISH THE TRIP THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE." -GONY Gony Zubizarreta dropped a couple wallets, but was able to pick them up shortly after. The little car that could. Ozzie face-painted the entire trip. Every night consisted of listening to Distractor over and over, Bintangs, and art tutorial with Ozzie. It was like a big kid sleepover! NO VACANCY STONEYS BOARDSHORTS Nate Leal's nickname is Snake Eal and this photo should further explain how he landed a nickname like that. It’s the only way to drink your morning mud - with your mug on your mug. Mitch Coleborn, evening light in Indonesia. WE WENT FROM SHARING SLEEPING PADS IN A DIRTY SMALL VILLA TO A 5 STAR RESORT WITH SERVANTS ALL AROUND US, IT WAS WILD! You would think this baby broke down frequent, but I swear this was the only time we had to push her! This car was a beast! Ryan Burch on a self-shaped, unidentified surfboard. "IT WAS AWESOME TO BE ON A TRIP WITH A COUPLE OF GUYS THAT I'VE GROWN UP WATCHING IN OLD VOLCOM VIDEOS. WE SCORED SO FUCKING HARD, I COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW BARRELED EVERYONE GOT!" -BALARAM   We had a solid group of our top groms crash our Aliens party and they were tripping! From the Hayden brothers to Cole Sandman to Keanu Taylor, each grom was upping the ante every day which produced a solid mix of oustanding surfing from the youngsters. Take a sneak peek below:

LONGO, HAAKONSEN AND FRIENDS IN OLIVIER GITTLER’S INTROSPECTION
OLIVIER IS A MAN OF MANY TALENTS. AT RIDING HIS SNOWBOARD, FILMING, EDITING, MAKING MUSIC, OR CELEBRATING LIFE, HE CONSTANTLY EXCELS. Oh, Oli's also the reigning Quarter Pipe World Champion, although he'll never admit to it. It’s no secret that a 30-second Instagram clip is usually a condensed version of a week-long trip around the world to document a specific goal. Whether it's a trick for a video part, a photo for the mags, field testing product, or any other reason to chase a winter storm. But, what about all the shenanigans in between? From airplanes to rental cars, hotel rooms to summits, and everything in between, sometimes the moments that define these trips are caught in-between takes. Volcom ambassador Olivier Gittler, with his strong appreciation for behind-the-scenes footage, put together this unique look at a season untold with Arthur Longo, Terje Haakonsen and friends.  "IT’S WHAT WE LOVE TO DO. ALL THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WHEN WE TRAVEL FOR SNOWBOARDING. THE SPONTANEOUS PART OF TRAVELING AROUND THAT NO ONE ELSE SEES." – OLIVIER GITTLER Oli double exposure photo by Adailton Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck Oli Mike and Jeff shot by Vernon Deck music recording setup iphone Oli and Arthur iphone Oli close up shot by Arthur Oli forest iphone Oli Mt Blanc iphone Oli photo by Adailton Oli setup iphone Oli shot by Longo - Crater Lake Super 8 Paulina Lake iphone
