Avocado and vegetable rice-paper rolls

Ingredients

  • 8 small rice-paper wrappers
  • 1/2 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 3/4 cup (50g) beansprouts, trimmed
  • 1 small carrot, peeled, grated
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled, cut into strips
  • Sweet chilli sauce, to serve

Step 1
Pour warm water into a heatproof bowl until half full. Dip 1 rice paper wrapper in water. Place on a flat surface. Stand for 20 to 30 seconds or until soft enough to roll without splitting.
Step 2
Place one-eighth of lettuce along 1 edge of 1 wrapper. Top with one-eighth each of beansprouts, carrot, cucumber and avocado. Fold in ends. Roll up firmly to enclose filling. Cover with a damp tea towel to prevent roll drying out. Repeat with remaining wrappers, lettuce, beansprouts, carrot and avocado. Serve with sweet chilli sauce.

Notes
Use a vegetable peeler to cut cucumber into ribbons.
Tip: Replace water if it gets too cold to soften wrappers.
