Packed with flavour these rolls make the perfect entree or summer main.
3 small red cabbage
1/4 red capsicum
1/4 yellow capsicum
2 baby carrots
3 spring onions
3 sheets rice paper
For the dipping sauce:
1 tsp peanut butter
1 tsp soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp chilli paste
1/4 tsp coconut-blossom nectar (or agave or honey)
1/2 tsp fresh, finely chopped garlic
1/2 tsp fresh green chilli, seeds and pith removed, finely sliced
Slice all vegetables into long, thin strips. Pour room-temperature water into a large bowl. Soak one sheet of rice paper at a time for 5 secs in the water. Remove and place on paper towel to soften for 10 secs.
Divide the rest of the ingredients among the 3 rice-paper sheets and fold to make 3 large Thai rice paper rolls.
For the dipping sauce, combine all ingredients and taste to make sure all the flavours are balanced to your liking (add a little less chilli and garlic to start with – you can always add the rest later). Serve rolls with the sauce.
