Summer Rolls with Peanut Sauce
These summer rolls and peanut sauce combo are so tasty and refreshing. They are perfect to pop in your lunch box for work or school.
They are bound to impress some friends with all the beautiful and colourful ingredients but actually they are really very easy and simple to make! And of course, absolutely delicious.
Step One: With lukewarm water in a bowl, soak the rice paper in the water for a few seconds so the rice paper becomes soft.
Step Two: Add in a small amount of each filling into the centre of the rice paper. (Pro tip: to make the rolls look picture perfect, place the mint leaves on the rice paper first so when the summer rolls are all rolled up you can see the leaves on the top).
Step Three: Fold the 2 edges inwards over the filling and roll the rest up tightly to make one neat roll.
Blend all together and warm through over low heat.
