Cook time



  • Sauce
  • ½ cup rice vinegar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ red chilli, finely sliced
  • ¼ cup raw peanuts, roughly chopped
  • ½ Lebanese cucumber, finely diced

  • 300g packet brown-rice vermicelli
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce or tamari
  • 225g firm tofu, cut into thin batons
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced into thin batons
  • 1½ carrot, sliced into thin batons
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced into thin batons
  • 1 yellow capsicum, sliced into thin batons
  • ⅛ purple cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch Vietnamese mint leaves or Thai basil leaves
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 1 bunch coriander leaves
  • 12 ricepaper wrappers


  • To make the dipping sauce, place the rice vinegar, maple syrup, water and red chilli into a small saucepan and boil for a few mins. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Once cool, add the peanuts and diced cucumber.
  • Pour boiling water over the rice noodles and leave for 8 mins or until they are tender.
  • Pour the soy sauce or tamari into the drained noodles and mix thoroughly.
  • Prepare all of the tofu and vegetable batons, spinach and herbs and place them on a plate ready to assemble the rolls.
  • To assemble the rolls, soak 1 ricepaper sheet in warm water in a large shallow dish for 15 secs, then place it onto a moist chopping board ready to add the filling ingredients.
  • Add a few spinach leaves, some rice noodles, cucumber, carrot and capsicum batons, tofu batons, and a few basil and coriander leaves.
  • Gently roll the rice paper over the mixture halfway, then fold in each of the sides and continue to roll to end up with a contained roll. Repeat with other ricepaper sheets.
  • To serve, cut the rolls into halves and display on a plate with the dipping sauce ready to share.
