My favourite thing to do is going to the market, walking around, seeing all the vendors, and stopping for some fresh rolls, maybe some tea as well! There’s a great vendor at the local market that makes great fresh rolls! But then, it dawned on me, why am I not making these at home?!

It’s been a while since I’ve done something snacky.

But we’re going to take this one step further today – we’re going to make it easy to handle (because regular grilled cheese is so hard to handle…), AND dress it up with some avocado.

First things first. Throughout the entire writing of this post, I had Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” stuck in my head. Because if you spell “bananas” out without singing that part of the song, then you’re a liar.

This is one of my favourite go-to healthy desserts. It’s especially interesting for me, because I hate yellow and spotted bananas. But this recipe? Deliciousness. Click on through to join me on this warm, caramelized, delicious adventure.

Avocado Rolls

These little suckers are fantastic as apps when having guests over, or just for lunch or snack on the weekend 🙂

I love egg roll wrappers, you can put anything in them, veggies and salsa, coleslaw sauté with some garlic and ginger, anything you want. This filling is my absolute favourite though.

Crunchy outside, warm soft inside and that kick of dill in the sour cream dip really drives the flavours home.

You’ll love it I promise and it’s actually quite easy and quick to make.
