  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast 
  • 1 tsp honey 
  • Salt + pepper to taste 
  • Water to thin it out if needed


  1. Prepare Chickapea Spaghetti or Linguine to package specifications (add pasta and 1 Tbsp of salt to the water, decrease heat to maintain a gentle boil. Stir and cook pasta for 7 minutes). 
  2. While the pasta is cooking, slice up the cabbage, cucumbers and avocados.
  3. Then add all of the dressing ingredients to a blender and blend until nice and creamy. 
  4. Once the pasta is done cooking, drain and rinse with cool water. 
  5. Once everything is prepped and ready to assemble, soak your rice paper in warm water for about 15 seconds and then fill it with the noodles and veggies. Then roll them up tightly.  
  6. Dip your fresh spring rolls in lots of green goddess dressing and enjoy!

Recipe Notes: 

  • If your rice papers are ripping, try soaking them for a bit less time - they will soften more as you assemble.

Recipe Notes:

  • The salad dressing does not keep well in the refrigerator as the contents will separate and solidify
  • With the exception of the salt in the dressing recipe, which can be lessened slightly to taste, the key to this dressing is to follow the instructions exactly and use fresh ingredients
  • Every oven broils food at a different speed, some ovens vastly so. Be careful to watch the asparagus as it cooks
  • Begin by broiling the asparagus for 2-3 minutes then increase the time by small intervals if it still hasn’t cooked enough
