"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Ingredients:  
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup peanut butter
6 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup lime juice
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 cups finely shredded napa cabbage
1 cup finely grated carrots
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh mint
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons minced dry-roasted peanuts
12 spring roll wrappers (plus extra for breakage)

Directions:
Directions:
In a small saucepan, heat the brown sugar and water over low heat to melt the sugar. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice and cayenne until well blended.

2. In a large bowl, toss together the napa cabbage, carrots, mint, basil and peanuts. Measure out 1/4 cup of the peanut sauce and toss with the vegetables.

3. Line a tray or platter with damp paper towels. Fill a round cake pan (or other shallow bowl) with hot water. Soak a spring roll wrapper for a minute or so--just long enough to make it flexible, but not longer or it will start to disintegrate.

4. Place the spring roll wrapper on a work surface. Scoop out 1/3 cup of the vegetable mixture and place on the bottom half of the wrapper. Fold the bottom edge of the wrapper over the filling, then fold in the two sides. Gently but firmly roll the wrapper up. Place the roll on the tray and cover with damp paper towels. Continue until all of the filling is used up, keeping the rolls covered with damp towels.

5. Cover the tray of rolls with plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. To serve, cut in the rolls in half with a sharp, serrated knife. Set out the bowl of peanut sauce for spooning into the rolls.
