These Thai Vegetable Tuna Rolls are a perfect appetizer/light meal to celebrate the lasts of those summer days with friends and family.

Made using Bella Portofino Tuna (Italian style), they are an easy way to add flavor and protein to our appetizer or meals.

Bella Portofino Tuna is a staple in our pantry and we have created tons of recipe using them like Spicy Tuna Cakes, Patties, Sandwich, etc.

And these gorgeous Thai Vegetable Tuna Rolls literally ruled our Labor Day weekend party.

” It was the showstopper recipe that everyone couldn’t get enough of “

It’s the mix of fresh summer veggies, along with tender texture tuna and Thai spices that gives these rolls such refreshing flavors.

Also, to make it even lighter and crispier, we are using collard green leaves to roll everything.

Which also makes it a perfect glutenfree recipe.

Thai Vegetable Tuna Rolls ingredients

Making the recipe is literally as easy as it looks. The ingredients can be found easily in stores near you.

Once you have everything with you, then simply thinly slice all the veggies except the collard green leaves (that we will use for the roll).

Now before you make these rolls, here are some extremely important reasons Why I use Bella Portofino Tuna:

This tuna has only three ingredients – wild-caught, hand selected Albacore, and Yellowfin tuna, along with EVOO and salt. The EVOO gives it a smooth, mellow flavor and the tender texture is perfect for all your tuna recipes.

With all these benefits, the Bella Portofino Tuna definitely delivers on taste and superior quality.

Now let’s start making our Tuna filling for the rolls by simply mixing it with Thai spice mix (picture below).


Then simply add some of the Thai tuna mix, freshly chopped veggies and herbs on each collard leaves and roll tightly.

I usually place the rolls next to each other as that helps them form the roll shape easily.

Now, you definitely need a sauce/dip to serve rolls, hence what’s better than a Spicy Thai Peanut Sauce?

And my version is absolutely easy and just 5 ingredients. Simply mix and whisk the ingredients to get a smooth spicy peanut sauce.

Once the sauce is ready, I simply cut all the rolls into halves and arranged it in a serving platter along with the spicy Thai peanut sauce.

The fun part about these Thai Vegetable Tuna Rolls is that they can be made in advance (3-4hrs) and simply stored in the fridge.

So you have time to go about arranging the house or just take a quick short nap before you start your party.

I highly recommend that before you get started with all Autumn/Fall recipes, try these Thai rolls with their light-fresh flavors and enjoy the last of summer days.
