Fresh Vegetable Rolls

Ever since visiting Thailand, I have had many failed attempts at creating fresh vegetable rolls. Two years later and I’m still trying to master it! This batch turned out moderately presentable and is packed with so many different flavours, various vitamins and minerals and most importantly, taste delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 10 rice paper wraps
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 large red pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped purple cabbage
  • 1/3 cup daikon, thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 2 leaves of romaine lettuce, thinly cut
  • 1/2 mango, thinly sliced
  • 5 sprigs of fresh mint (the tastiest part!) and/or basil and cilantro
  • filler: cooked vermicelli noodles, thinly sliced marinated & cooked tofu, or cooked & butterflied shrimp
  • garnish with sesame seeds

Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce: Best with vermicelli noodles and tofu filler.

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce (optional depending on your spice tolerance)
  • 1 tablespoon of warm water
  • garnish with crushed peanuts, and/or red pepper chilli flakes

Nuoc Cham Dipping Sauce: Best with shrimp filler.

  • 6 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp honey or sugar
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/2 clove garlic, minced

Instructions:

  1. Cook filler and set aside.
  2. Prep vegetables, washing and finely chopping and set aside.
  3. Make one or both dipping sauces, whisking together all ingredients until desired consistency is reached. Set aside.
  4. Soak rice paper wrap in a shallow dish with hot water, until softened (~10 seconds). Transfer wrap onto a damp tea towel.
  5. Place vegetables about 1/2 inch away from the edge of the wrap and top will filler. Carefully roll the wrap, finishing by folding in the left and right edges. This is the hardest part as the wraps easily rip.
  6. Serve with sauce and enjoy!!

These vegetables rolls are best consumed the day they are made. 

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!!
