Vietnamese vegetarian spring roll


Well-Known Member
So ... today's experiment was a Vietnamese vegetarian spring roll. The key ingredient is rice paper used to roll up the fresh veggies. The first try was a disaster, they fell apart. The second try worked beautifully. Here are the tricks

1.....use 2 rice papers per roll.. overlap by ~30%
2..... use a bit of lettuce to hold the stuff

If you do it right, it should be as stiff as a Cuban cigar, even after you bite it (the roll not the cigar)

For the filling I used

Boston lettuce
English cucumber
Shredded carrots
Bean sprouts
Pickled Ginger

For the peanut sauce dip I mixed crunchy peanut butter, sesame seed oil, and soy sauce
