Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Bonjour! 

Feel like something fresh, light and tasty? Then these Vietnamese Spring Rolls might be just what you need! 

While I was travelling through South -East Asia with friends we took a cooking class in Vietnam. That’s when I fell in love with these rolls. What makes them so special is that they are super healthy and super delicious… BIG TIME!

What do they consist of? Mostly vegetables 🙂  

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

The first step is to decide what vegetables you want to add to your roll. I usually use carrots, bell peppers and cucumber. However, you may use ANY veggie you like. Sometimes I cut some cabbage into strips or add some mushrooms. 

Now some people prefer their veggies cooked, grilled etc. for their rolls. I like them just the way they come… raw. When raw, they do have much more nutrients and texture than heated veggies.

Shrimps… I LOVE! I always add one shrimp per roll. 

 

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

  1. cut veggies
  2. pour hot water over rice noodles (optional ingredient) 
  3. shortly put the shrimps into a pan 

When those steps are done the fun begins. 

Wet the rice paper into a large/deep plate until soft. Once soft you place some veggies and the rice noodles about a three – fingers –  distance from the edge of the rice paper.

Rolling the little “package” once, make sure that you do this quite firm. Add the shrimp and keep on rolling until the end. Do not forget to lap the ends inside.

Lastly, I prepared two dippping sauces:

  1. Spicy Mayo 
  2. Spicy Garlic Soy Sauce 

 

Bon Appetit!
