Makes 10 rolls

Ingredients

• 10 rice paper wrappers
• 1 carrot, peeled & julienned
• 1 cucumber, julienned
• 1/2 capsicum, julienned
• 1 avocado, sliced
• 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
• 5 large lettuce leaves torn in half
• Handful fresh coriander (and/or mint, basil)
• 30g cooked rice noodles or rice vermicelli (optional)

Method

1. Have all ingredients laid out in a production line.
2. Working with 1 sheet of rice paper at a time, dip into warm water for about 10 seconds, turning until it begins to soften. Drain excess water. Lay on a clean work surface.
3. Place a few slices of carrot, cucumber, capsicum, avocado, chicken, lettuce and herbs at one side of the wrapper.
4. Add a small amount of the cooked vermicelli noodles if using.
5. Fold base & sides of wrapper over filling & roll up firmly to enclose. Transfer to a plate & cover with a damp cloth. Repeat.

Why not try a vegetarian option by removing the chicken or substituting with tofu?!
