Vietnamese rice paper rolls are a healthy, tasty and portable snack alternative to begin any party.

Suggestions:

To make prawns straight and easier to roll in rice paper, buy green prawns, peel them and thread onto a skewer. Drop into boiling water for two minutes, let them cool and take them off the skewers.

Ingredients:

10 sheets rice paper, round or square

100 g bean shoots

100 g rice vermicelli (rice noodles)

1/2 red capsicum, thinly sliced

1 cucumber, thinly sliced

1 carrot, thinly sliced

10 cooked green prawns

1 Tbsp fresh spearmint or mint leaves

1 Tbsp fresh coriander

10 garlic chives or regular chives, one for each roll

1/4 cup water (dipping sauce)

2 Tbsp sugar (dipping sauce)

1 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar (dipping sauce)

2 Tbsp fish sauce (dipping sauce)

1 clove garlic, crushed (optional) (dipping sauce)

1/2 tsp pickled red chilli, ground (or fresh to taste) (dipping sauce)

1 Tbsp roasted peanuts, ground (dipping sauce)


Directions:

ROLLS

Blanch the bean shoots quickly in boiling water, then plunge them into ice cold water. Drain well.

Soak the vermicelli noodles in boiling water for two minutes, drain well.

Soak the rice paper in warm water for 20 seconds and place on a clean towel or tea towel to absorb the excess moisture. Shred the mint and coriander leaves.

Place some noodles and bean shoots and a selection of the other ingredients on a piece of rice paper and roll the rice paper just enough to cover the filling. Tuck in the ends, then place a piece of prawn in the roll and continue rolling until the rice paper runs out.

DIPPING SAUCE

Boil the water and sugar together for two minutes, then allow to cool. Mix in the lemon juice or vinegar, fish sauce, crushed garlic, pickled red chilli and nuts and serve with the rice paper rolls.

@ sportyyquad. The recipe has 10 rice paper sheets and it serves 10. So it must be 1 per serve :)

Does anyone know what equals a serve? Is it one or more?

Agree the calorie amount is about double what I would have thought. I always (as do most people) slice the prawns in half lengthwise to make rolling easier.

Where it says "per serving" does that mean per "rice paper roll"? If so, that''s a lot of calories for such a small roll?

Rolls were great - though 10 prawns were not enough - I used 1.5 prawns per roll - perhaps I needed king prawns? I didn''t like the dipping sauce. Mixed in some commercial black bean sauce and it tasted a bit better.
