Summer is finally here which means lots of backyard BBQs and parties will be popping up all season long. With that in mind, we whipped up some Veggie Hemp Summer Rolls for Foodie Friday today!
They’re the perfect light and fresh appetizer for any summer party and they look really fancy so everyone will be impressed by your cooking skills.
We stuffed these rolls with Hemp Hearts, cucumber, carrots, red pepper, spinach, and green onions but you can use whichever veggies you have on hand. Plus you can add some tofu, shrimp, or hummus if you’d like to make them into more of a meal.
We also made a Spicy Sriracha Peanut Sauce to dip the Veggie Hemp Summer Rolls in. It’s a slightly sweet sauce with a kick of heat from the sriracha and a rich and creamy taste from the peanut butter. You could also serve these with soy sauce or a sweet chilli sauce.

Makes: 12 Rolls
For the Veggie Hemp Summer Rolls:
- 12 rice papers (22 cm)
- 6 tbsp. Hemp Hearts
- 1 red pepper, julienned
- 3 large carrots, julienned
- 1 long English cucumber, julienned

- 3-4 tbsp. water
- Fill a large bowl with hot water.
- Place one sheet of rice paper in the water and let it soak for about 30 seconds.
- Lift the rice paper out of the water and place it on a clean surface or cutting board and let it sit for 30 seconds to absorb the water.
- Layer on 1/2 tbsp. of Hemp Hearts, a few slices of red pepper, carrot, and cucumber, and top it with some spinach and green onions.
- Gently lift the side of the rice paper that’s closest to you and fold it over the fillings.
- Hold the middle of the roll while you fold each side in and then roll it until it meets the other end.
- Continue this process until all of your ingredients have been used up.
- To make the Spicy Sriracha Peanut Sauce, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until well combined. You can add more water if it’s too thick.
- Serve the Veggie Hemp Summer Rolls with the Spicy Sriracha Peanut Sauce and enjoy!
