Vietnamese Vegetarian Spring Rolls

My sallad in the form of vietnamese spring rolls

I have been eating a lot of salad lately and I was going to eat salad again. However I wanted a variation and therefore I made Vietnamese spring rolls. I just made the sallad from ingredients I had in the refrigerator. You can really put anything you love and like in the filling.

  • Cucumber chopped
  • Chinese broccoli chopped
  • Green beans chopped
  • Sliced eggplant
  • Sliced water chestnuts
  • Spring onions chopped
  • Red pepper chopped

I woked the salad in a little oil in the wokpan and added  a little salt and pepper.
After woking the sallad I took Vietnamese rice paper, brushed it with water and put a spoonful of the sallad on,  rolled the ricepaper around and made the springrolls. These thin ricepapers don´t need to be fried. They can be eaten just by dipping in the sauce of your choice. You can use sweet and sour sauce for dipping or make the dipping sauce below, or they can be eaten just as they are without dipping. It is a nice variation for a salad. If you have some fresh salad leaves to wrap around your roll before dipping it becomes a feast!

For the Dipping Sauce

1 tablespoons fish sauce
3 tablespoons warm water
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3/4 clove garlic, minced
1 1/4 tablespoons white sugar
1/3 teaspoon garlic chili sauce (Chirashi)
2 3/4 tablespoons hoisin sauce

Ricepaper can be bought in any Asien foodstore, however even in other grocery stores!
