Spinach Wrap

By: Michael Lam, MD, MPH; Dorine Lam, RDN, MS, MPH

Spinach is high in calcium, folate, iron, vitamin C, carotene, potassium and fiber. It is also rich in antioxidants to help reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, cataracts and strokes. The sun-dried tomatoes will help the body to absorb the iron content of the spinach.



Raw version:
Mixed together:
Organic Baby Spinach - chopped
Organic Firm Tofu - Cubed - Add some sea salt and pepper
White onion - chopped fine
Sun-Dried Tomato - chopped
1 tbsp Olive oil

Cooked version (make enough for the number of people serve):
Saute onion in grape seed oil.
Add organic frozen spinach, defrosted and squeeze out all excess water.
Add Sun-dried Tomato.
Add Cubed organic Firm Tofu - gently stir.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

Wrapping the Roll:
Dip Rice Paper in the warm water until it is soft. Take Rice Paper out of the water and lay it on a plate.
Put the spinach mixture in the bottom 1/3 of the wrap,
Fold the bottom wrap up, roll it up to 3/4.
Fold in the two ends. Roll to the end.

This will make it into a large spring roll.

Note of Caution:

1.For those with Estrogen Dominance and Hypothyroid - you may want to substitute Tofu with Tempeh (fermented tofu) For Diabetic - instead of sugar for the sauce, use stevia powder.

The key to seasoning in oriental cooking is to adjust the seasonings to your taste. The seasoning here is for suggestions. You need to add enough, so that the Korean glass noodles are totally coated.
Soup Base
These two recipes can be made ahead of time and stored in glass jars in the fridge. I find it quite tasty to use this soup base to blend with raw vegetables to create a cream soup. It is full of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients for the body. I use soup Base 1 when the raw vegetables are darker in color, such as green and red. Soup base 2 is for light vegetables, such as onions, yellow bell peppers, and potatoes.
