California Rolls, Sauteed BokChoy and snow peas and veggie egg rolls - it's what's for dinner!

I was so hungry for asian food I couldn't make up my mind what to have so we had an asian fusion dinner. We had stir fry bok choy with bean sprouts, onions and snow peas (yes, this is the recipe!) with about 1 tsp of rice vinegar and 1 tbsp. of soy sauce and about 2 tbsp. olive oil.
Then I shredded up some carrots, used some of the bean sprouts, avocado (thin sliced) and some green onions (thin sliced) and sticky rice rolled up in sushi wrappers to make some yummy california rolls. OH, I almost forgot - the pickled daikon radishes!!!!
Recipe: 1 large daikon radish cut into matchsticks and put into a jar. 1/2 - 1 cup of rice vinegar, 1/2 - 1 C. of water and 1/2 - 1 C. of sugar (I cut this back) and 1 tsp of turmeric boiled and poured over the radishes in the jar - the longer they sit - the better they are.
I CHEAT on my egg rolls. I buy egg roll wrappers and pre-made coleslaw mix and fill the wrapper and deep fry them in canola or sesame oil (you can use peanut oil also but I don't usually!) I also buy pre-made thai sweet hot sauce and use it for dipping my egg rolls in.
Yep - this was a yummy and easy dinner that satisfied the craving - the only thing that would have made it better would be if I had had not so ripe mangos so I could make a thai mango salad. That would have been DA BOMB! Someday soon I will satisfy the need for Thai food! REAL SOON!
