RECIPE: VEGETABLE SUMMER ROLLS
Looking for a quick and easy recipe? Try this tasty and nutritious vegetable summer roll recipe by local chef Laura Scott…
1 packet Rice paper rolls 12 will serve 4 people as an appetiser
300 g Vermicelli rice noodles, soaked in boiling water until cooked
50 g Beansprouts
2 Carrots, peeled and grated
1/2 Cucumber, cut into matchsticks
1 Red pepper, cut into matchsticks
1 bunch Coriander – leaves only
1 bunch Mint – leaves only
Dip the rice paper circular roll into a large bowl of cold water until it becomes soft and pliable (about 10 seconds) then remove and shake off excess water.
Place the rice paper roll onto a clean work surface, and fill the central area (as you would fill a wrap) with a line of herbs [coriander and mint leaves], leaving the ends clear so you can roll them up easily.
Top the herbs with a line of rice noodles, followed by a few beansprouts, a couple of sticks of red pepper, cucumber and some grated carrot.
Fold over the ends of the rice paper roll, then bring in one side to wrap and cover the central filling.
Continue rolling until the rice paper forms a roll, which should stick itself together as it will still be slightly wet.
Cover the rolls with damp kitchen roll or a damp cloth until you are ready to eat them. You can do this an hour or two ahead.
Serve the vegetable summer rolls with a sweet chilli sauce or a soy, spring onion and ginger dipping sauce.
