Recipe of the Week: Vegetable Spring Rolls with Spicy Peanut-Lime Sauce

The summer season is prime time to buy and eat veggies, and just because you buy produce in the farmers’ market doesn’t mean you have to cook and consume it right away.

Assemble these vegetable spring rolls when you have downtime and they’ll keep fresh in the fridge for a couple days. You can also get playful with the filling by adding daikon, radishes, sprouts, and other local finds.

For more tasty, creative ways to add vegetables to your meal plans, check out The Part-Time Vegan Cookbook: Quick and Easy Vegetables You Can Eat Every Day. The cookbook isn’t just for vegans but for anyone who wants to eat more veggies but isn’t sure how to get started in the kitchen.

Except the water, add all sauce ingredients to a blender to process until smooth. Add in water to create the sauce thickness you prefer.

Grab a large bowl for the filling, and fold together cucumber, red pepper, carrots, green onions, lettuce strips, Thai basil, and cilantro.

To prepare to assemble the rolls, fill a large bowl with hot water. Lay a clean dishtowel on a large cutting board.

Gently plunge a rice paper wrapper into the water, and keep it submerged for ten seconds. Carefully transfer it from the water to lay it on the dishtowel.

Place about 1/8 of the filling in the middle of the wrapper. Too much can tear the wrapper so don’t heap it on. Sprinkle peanuts and salt on top.

To fold the wrapper, first bring the left and right sides toward the center. Then fold up the bottom side of the wrapper, and continue in that direction to roll it up. To keep it fresh while assembling the other 7 spring rolls, put the first roll on a plate, and cover with a damp paper towel.

Repeat Steps 5 and 6 until you are out of filling.

Serve immediately with peanut dipping sauce on the side.

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.

If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.

To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.


Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion, we hate profits so our shipping is 100% free!

So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $99.

Why the restriction on international orders?

Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
