Check out this delicious Avocado Tuna Rice Spring Rolls with Poke Sauce recipe from VeeTee member Hidemi Walsh
and the story behind it:
My diabetic husband loves sushi and deep fried spring rolls but those are not so healthy. To satisfy him, I created this recipe. Not only to make it healthy, but also to enjoy the taste of each ingredient and the dipping sauce, I made these simply. For the sauce, I got inspired by Poke. Very refreshing, guilt free, gluten free and health benefits packed meal.
