My whole family loves these! Although they may seem small (considering the size of muffin we can get in a bakery) but we always add a helping of fruit or yogurt for breakfast. Yummy!

This is an easy side that I use instead of Potatoes - lots more nutrients.

The vegetables can marinate for a couple of hours, so all you'll have to do at party time is arrange them on a platter and top with olives and cheese. Immediately place the prepared vegetables in the marinade so they won't discolor. Be sure to use fresh mozzarella, which comes packed in water and is usually found with the specialty cheeses. Coarsely chop leftovers and toss with pasta for a cold salad.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(78 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.
