Rice paper rolls are one of my favourite summer meals. They don't require an oven or a stove, and they are so crisp and refreshing to eat. You can pack them with all kinds of vegetables and noodles to help soak up all your delicious sauce.

Directions

Click:

  1. Add the rice noodles and edamame into separate bowls, and pour on top of each some boiling water. Set aside.
  2. In a large shallow dish, soak 1 sheet of rice paper in warm water for about 10 seconds, or until slightly softened. Note: it's better that the water be a bit cooler rather than too warm. The rice paper will continue to soften even after removed from the water. Do not over-soak, otherwise the rice paper will likely break when rolled.
  3. Remove the paper from the water and let the excess water drip off it. Transfer the sheet to a large plate, top it with the drained rice noodles, edamame, avocado, and all the veggies you'd like.
  4. Wrap the salad roll like you would a burrito: folding in the sides, then tucking and rolling. Cut in half using a sharp knife. Set aside. Note, it can help to lightly brush each side of the knife in just a little bit of oil, so that the rice paper and rice noodles don't stick to the knife.
  5. To make the sauce, combine the peanut butter, hoisin sauce, and lime juice in a small bowl and whisk. Then add small splashes of water, about a tsp (5 mL) at a time and continue until you achieve your desired consistency. Serve with the salad rolls, dip, and enjoy!

I can't recommend these rolls enough! They are so filling, especially with the delicious peanut butter sauce <3 And, they are perfect picnic finger food ;)

Lovely idea to bring them to picnics! Thanks for sharing the review, Cath 🙂

Easy and delicious meal, which doesn't feel too heavy in the stomach but will still make you feel satisfied ! Definitely make the sauce, it tastes heavenly on its own but also with the raw veggies !! ☺

So glad you enjoyed the recipe, Clara, thanks a bunch!

I would really love if you were able to add the approximate calories for your recipes. For people trying to contain how much calories they're eating this could be helpful. Also this looks beautiful!

Amazing! So tasty. I added red chili paste to the sauce and it sent it over the top- very delicious!


Charlotte - Aug. 7, 2021, 10:57 p.m.

I have been making this recipe so much this summer as the rolls are so fresh and tasty as well as fun to make. From my experience last year, I have now learnt which is the best rice paper to buy as the first type I tried easily ripped. I also now add some iceberg lettuce for an extra layer of crunch in the rolls which I really like. The peanut hoisin sauce is the highlight!

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 10:23 p.m.

We appreciate this so much more than words can describe, Charlotte! Love the lettuce for extra crunch 🤩


Rebecca - July 27, 2021, 12:10 a.m.

This recipe is so good! It took me a few tries to get the rolling but I figured it out. I found out it’s easier not to overstuff the rolls with veggies.

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 4:18 a.m.

A lovely tip, Rebecca! So happy the salad rolls were enjoyed ☺️


Maria - July 13, 2021, 1:08 p.m.

I absolutely love this sauce recipe specifically. I always tend to modify what is in the summer rolls based on the vegetables I have in my fridge, but I jar this sauce and just use it for the week to make them because I find it so tasty! It truly just elevates the summer roll and makes it much more filling. I sometimes leave out the noodles in this, sometimes I add tofu. Play with what is in the roll and it's like a new meal each week but the sauce is PERFECTION

PUL Team - July 18, 2021, 12:58 a.m.

Such an incredible review, Maria, thank YOU! Love the idea of adding the sauce to noodles too 🤤


jonna - July 12, 2021, 3:08 a.m.

so so good, i make this recipe at least a few times a month! really tasty, and you can just tell how nutritious it is too, with all the vegetables


Lucy - July 11, 2021, 5:42 p.m.

Manuela - July 9, 2021, 11:02 a.m.

Made these a few weeks ago, simply delicious!!!! Thank you for the recipe :)


Zoe - July 9, 2021, 1:11 a.m.

The sauce is addictive! So tasty and fresh for summer. Adding chopped cilantro and mint gives it a little extra something too!

PUL Team - July 12, 2021, 7:55 a.m.

Thank you for sharing, Zoe! 🤩


Marilynn - July 8, 2021, 10:56 p.m.

This was such a great easy summer recipe. My teenagers loved it too!


Géraldine - June 22, 2021, 8:58 p.m.

Hi Sadia, fresh, delicious and easy to make. And it can be repeatedly reinvented depending on the vegs available! I didn't have hoisin sauce so used soya sauce and a dash of honey instead.

PUL Team - June 24, 2021, 5:58 a.m.

We're so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Géraldine!


Sylvia - June 11, 2021, 8:30 p.m.

Sadia these are great, but…. How many rolls did you make before they looked as beautiful as they do on the picture!? 😂 I made about ten, and at number seven it came close to pic worthy food 😂

PUL Team - June 13, 2021, 12:05 a.m.

Thank you for the review, Sylvia 😃 Hehe recipe testing has the perk of added practice! A lovely reminder that in pictures we tend to see the enhanced versions that are perfectly plated, whereas in real life this isn't always the case🙂
