There are a couple of reasons why we love this recipe for Summer Rice Paper Rolls, firstly they are filled with bright
colourful ingredients! Secondly they are super easy to make and thirdly the dipping sauce is amazing!

 

INGREDIENTS 

(Makes 10 rolls)
– Pick your protein
– 50g rice vermicelli noodles
– 80g red cabbage, finely shredded
– 2 medium carrots, julienned
– 1 medium cucumber, thinly sliced
– 1 medium red capsicum, deseeded and thinly sliced
– 10 rice paper sheets
– 1 ripe mango, thinly sliced
– 1 small bunch coriander, leaves picked
– 1 small bunch mint, leaves picked

DRESSING 

– 1 tbsp rice vinegar
– 1 tsp soy sauce or tamari
– ½ tsp fish sauce
– 1 tsp honey
– ½ lime, juiced
– Peanut Dipping Sauce:
– 100g peanut butter
– 1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
– 1 tbsp coconut sugar
– ½ lime, juiced
– ½ tsp fresh ginger, grated
– 1 tbsp roughly chopped roasted peanuts
– Sesame seeds, to garnish
– Dried chilli flakes, to serve

HOW TO

1. Place the noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 10 minutes then loosen the noodles with a fork. Drain and refresh under cool running water. Drain well and set aside to cool slightly. When cool enough to handle cut into shorter lengths and set aside.
2. To make the dressing whisk the rice vinegar,soy sauce or tamari, fish sauce, honey and lime juice together in a small bowl. Set aside.
3. To make the peanut dipping sauce whisk the peanut butter,soy sauce or tamari,coconut sugar,lime juice and ginger together in a small bowl. Add 60 ml hot water and mix until well combined. If the mixture is a little thick add 1 tablespoon of hot water at a time until the desired consistency is reached. Set aside.
4. Place the prepared vegetables on a clean board and drizzle over the dressing. Place the mango
coriander and mint on the board with the vegetables and place the bowl of noodles nearby.
5. Prepare a bowl of warm water to soak the rice paper sheets. Soak one rice paper sheet in the water for 30 seconds to one minute
until soft. Soften one sheet at a time otherwise they will stick together.
6. Lay the softened rice paper sheet on a clean work surface and place a small amount of each vegetable
noodles and mango in the center. Make sure that all the ingredients are facing the same direction and top with the coriander and mint leaves.
7. Lift the side of the rice paper sheet closest to you and fold it over to enclose the ingredients. Start rolling away from you
tucking in the sides as you go to form a tight roll. Place on a serving plate and cover with a damp cloth to keep fresh. Repeat with the remaining rice paper sheets and ingredients.
8. To serve arrange on the serving plate and serve with the peanut dipping sauce sprinkled with the chopped peanuts
sesame seeds and chilli flakes if using.
