    The rolls are a vegan twist on the classic Vietnamese spring roll. Instead of meat or prawns, the rolls are filled with a rainbow of fresh veggies, making them both visually beautiful and delicious.

     

     

     

    Steps

    1
    Done

    1. Working with one rice paper at a time, take the paper in both hands and dip half of it in the warm water. Quickly rotate the paper for a few seconds (like turning a steering wheel) until the whole paper has been submerged in the water. Shake off the excess water, then lay the rice paper on a plastic chopping board or worktop (don’t use a wooden board as it will stick). The paper will continue to soften up as it absorbs moisture.

    2. Arrange your veggies on one half of the rice paper, leaving a border either side. I use a few ribbons of lettuce, a few strands of red cabbage, then 2-4 strips each of tofu, carrot, pepper and courgette. Make sure that there are no sharp edges poking out as the rice papers are delicate and easily tear. Squash the filling together then start rolling.

    3. Gently pull the rice paper over the filling. Tuck in the edges as you roll. Try to keep it as tight as you can (like you’re rolling a burrito).

    Done

    4. Roll the summer roll in sesame seeds. Shake off the excess seeds and set the roll to one side. Repeat the process. I make eight rolls for four people, but if your rice papers are smaller than mine, you may want to roll more. Just before serving, cut the rolls into two.

    Done

    5. To make the dipping sauce: place all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together with a fork. Add a splash more water, if needed, to reach desired consistency. Taste test and adjust the vinegar, sweetness, ginger levels if desired. I give everyone their own little dipping bowl so they can double dip to their heart’s content! Just before serving, sprinkle on some sesame seeds for garnish.
