* Approximate values from Xyris Foodworks software
- 200g rice paper sheets
- 1.5 cups vermicelli noodles
- 1 cup red cabbage
- 1 medium carrot
- 1 medium cucumber
- 1/3 cup spring onion
- 1/3 cup mint
- 1/3 cup coriander
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds
- 3 tbsp roasted peanuts
- 1 cooked chicken breast
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- ¼ cup lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 tbsp water
- 1/3 cup almonds
- Time saver tip: chop your rice paper roll fillings: cabbage, carrot, cucumber, spring onion, coriander, mint, peanuts and add shredded chicken to a large bowl and combine.
- In a separate bowl add your noodles and cover with hot water. Cover bowl with a flat plate until noodles are soft before draining excess water.
- Fill a flat, slightly shallow plate with warm water and submerge your rice paper sheet into the water for 2 seconds and rotate sheet on plate if needed. Ensure you don’t leave the sheet in the water for too long as this will cause the sheet to become too sticky and break apart.
- On a separate plate, lay your softened rice paper sheet down then add noodles and filling. Fold the left and right sides in, then starting rolling firmly from the bottom to the top until the rice paper is fully sealed.
- To make the peanut sauce, combine all sauce ingredients in a food processor or nutribullet until smooth. If too thick, add an extra tablespoon of water until it reaches desired consistency.
- Serve rice paper rolls immediately with peanut sauce and enjoy!
The key players of this recipe are:
- The easy, colourful blend of veggies: a vibrant mix of different antioxidants, purple cabbage, carrot, and green herbs. A low-calorie serving while also meeting your veggie target.
- Peanuts: A fantastic source of monounsaturated fats, protein and fibre. Roasting peanuts can increase their antioxidant content by up to 22%!
