Pan-fried beet, radish, and zucchini spring rolls

I realized I still had some sweet and sour sauce that Megan from The Sisters Vegan left at my apartment. I thought, "Hmm, what should I do with this yummy sauce? Oh! Spring rolls!"

Then I just had to look in my fridge to decide what to put in them. I decided on beets, radishes, zucchini, and lemon juice. I also added ground ginger and miso spices. There really isn't a recipe for this. I just food processed everything, rolled the spring rolls, and then pan-fried them. I used store-bought wrappers, so I don't have a recipe for that either. I am laaazy today (it's midterms week), and this was a spur of the moment dinner choice.

They turned out fantastic. Check them out:

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "What the hell is going on with this plate?" Well, I painted it at Brush Fire, and I realize some of the music notes are upside down. They're dancing! Now, back to vegan food pictures:

Yuuuum. K, I'm gonna go eat more.

OMG. That looks so good. Hey because I tried beets at your house, I like love them now. I can't figure out why I hated them before, except that maybe I am a weirdo. So thanks for that. ;)

Great idea! I had some beets delivered by my co-op, had no idea what to do with them, and then I found this. I used cabbage, beets, carrots, and onions, then tossed in some fresh ginger, lemon juice, and toasted sesame oil. Fantastic! Thanks for this awesome inspiration.
