Also known as rainbow or summer rolls, these are best served with peanut dipping sauce.
These rolls are so versatile that you can add any ingredient you like. To make it flavourful and protein-rich, add a lot of colourful veggies. All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together before wrapping the filling in Vietnamese rice paper.
To make these transparent Vietnamese rolls, read the recipe below.
6 rice papers
1 cup cooked rice noodles
2-3 medium carrots
2-3 cups lettuce
½ red bell pepper ( thinly sliced )
1 cucumber julienned ( thin strips )
½ cup mint and basil leaves
For making peanut sauce
2-3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp chilli oil
1-2 tbsp rice vinegar
1-2 tbsp sesame paste
1 tbsp minced ginger and garlic
1 tbsp brown sugar
To make the sauce, whisk all ingredients in a bowl until well blended.
These rolls are best eaten soon after baking, as the rice leaves become hard and chewy if stored for a long time. Or you can wrap the rolls with a damp cloth to prevent moisture loss.
Tip: For an extra layer of protein, you can add aromatic tofu to the recipe.
