Hello! Hello! Aldy here! Well first of all let me tell you that this blog has been under a lot of changes lately, so mostly I've been submerged into blogging + design for the last couple of weeks. There are still a few things that need to be fixed but I'm getting there, so if you get an error while browsing the site, just let me know, ok. On the other hand I'm working on a little project too and I'd let you know soon. So stay tuned!
Now, today I'm sharing with you these AWESOME vegetarian rolls because they are so easy to put together and so deliciously flavorful that you couldn't believe it. Really! you can call it super serious fast food! I promise you that once you start making them it becomes almost an everyday habit. And if you're as 'craze' as me about vegetarian + quick + wholesome cooking, well...I'm pretty sure you'll love it too.
So quick story. The first time I tried this food was while I was living in Australia (yes, I lived there for a while too). I used to go to a bakery close by and just buy myself a super nice Vietnamese roll. The ingredients and flavors felt so 'amazingly great' after the first bite that I don't think I've ever tried a sandwich so yum. I mean a sandwich is a sandwich, right?! You wouldn't expect much, but when something so humble is elevated with such interesting ingredients...well I think it becomes simply superb. Here it is my Vietnamese Inspired Rolls with Pickled Sauce. I just love this.
Seriously though, you can make this roll in no time, have it for lunch when you're really busy (and hungry), bring it to work (just pack + go + save too!), serve it by it self or with a bowl of soup (warm or cool), you can also add slices of chicken, beef or pork. I like mine with just vegetables but J. likes adding chicken to it. So make it + eat it + enjoy it !
