Meatless Mondays: Millet Spring Roll Salad

by Cassidy Stockton in Featured Articles, Gluten Free, Meatless Mondays, Recipes

I love this recipe because it’s simple, healthy and has all of the flavor of a spring roll without the hassle! Plus, it uses millet, one of my all-time favorite grains. I made this with crispy pan fried tofu (check out Herbivoracious for a great method) and it was plenty for a meal for two with leftovers. I didn’t try this, but crispy wonton strips would be a fun addition to this salad (awesome how-to video here).
