Ingredients

  • 10 medium round rice paper wrappers
  • 4,5 oz cooked rice vermicelli noodles (125 g)
  • 10 small romaine lettuce leaves
  • 1 medium fresh carrot peeled and grated
  • 10 slices fresh cucumber cut in halved
  • a handful fresh mint leaves
  • a handful fresh cilantro leaves

Instructions

  1. Place a large saucepan with water over medium heat until it starts to simmer lightly. Turn the heat off and let it cool a little. The water should be warm, just so you can put your hand in it. Soak a rice paper wrapper in the warm water for 20 seconds until a little soft but not soaked.

  2. Then place it on a clean chopping board. Now you have to choose which filling you want. Make sure not to add too much or the spring rolls will be too thick and difficult to wrap. Let’s start with some lettuce and cooked noodles. Place this in the middle of the rice paper wrapper.

  3. Top with some sliced cucumber, grated carrot and a couple of mint and cilantro leaves. Place 2 halved prawns right above it. This is for presentation purposes.

  5. Now fold both sides over the filling. Then roll the whole package up, the prawns should be right on top of the spring roll.

  6. Once you’re done, place the fresh spring roll on a large plate (lightly brush it with vegetable oil if you fear the rolls will stick too much to the plate) and assemble the rest of the spring rolls using the remaining ingredients. In the end, serve the fresh spring rolls with the dipping sauce.
