Simple Vietnamese rice paper rolls


- Rice paper rolls

- Salad/veg desired (cucumbers, carrots, bean sprouts, lettuce)

- Chicken or any meat/meat alternative

- Vermcelli noodles (optional)

- Soy sauce & small dollop mayonnaise if desired (or any side sauce)

- Lime or lemon (if desired)


- Cut up salad/veg - carrots, cucumber and lettuce into long thin slices, bean sprouts as is

- Cook chicken and cut up

- Cook the vermicelli noodles according to packet instructions (I sub-merge mine in a bowl of hot water and then drain)

To serve:

- Place chicken and cut up salad/veg on serving bowl/plate, same with vermicelli noodles

- Boil the kettle and pour boiling hot water onto a shallow plate which has rims (like photo)

- Have another plate which you will construct your rice paper roll on

- Get 1 rice paper sheet out of the packet, and carefully place it onto the plate with the boiling hot water until it has submerged and turned gel-like (i.e. no longer a hard sheet). Be careful not to burn yourself and try to keep the sheet in it's circle size and not scrunch up.

- Bring the sheet out of the water and place on the other plate you will be eating off - spread out

- Put some salad/veg, chicken, vermicelli noodles and sauce with a squeeze of lime in the centre of the sheet and roll up accordingly to make a rice paper roll! Enjoy!

You can make these any way you want and get creative.
