Once soften, gently lay the wrappers on a sheet pan lined with a clean towel.

Along the bottom third of the spring roll wrapper, overlap the basil leaves. Placing positive side down.

Then place the bean mixture along the top.

Sprinkle with the roasted almonds.

Fold the wrapper up over the mixture then fold in both sides and continue to roll up tightly.  Make sure to adhere the wrapper to secure the filling.

Chill the rolls for at least 10 minutes.  Depending on the size of the spring roll wrappers, the rolls can be cut on a diagonal before serving.
