Ingredients:

For the summer rolls:

  • Handful of mung bean sprouts
  • 1 small bunch of chives, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, sliced into thin strips

  • 1tbsp sesame oil

Method:

  • Slice the red pepper, cucumber and carrot into matchstick shapes
  • Finely chop the herbs
  • Rehydrate one of the rice paper wraps in warm water for just a few seconds. Place on a clean tea towel, as they can otherwise be quite hard to handle
  • Then, place an even amount of each sliced vegetable in the rice paper wrap and roll into a cigar-like shape
  • Rehydrate and fold the rest of the wraps to make the remainder of the veggie rolls
  • Mix together the sesame oil and black vinegar and serve alongside the summer rolls as a tasty dipping sauce
  • Tuck in!
