Makes 30

2 Lebanese cucumbers, cut into thin sticks
2 medium carrots, grated
1 bunch Vietnamese mint leaves
100g beanshoots
1/2 red or yellow capsicum, thinly sliced
30 sheets rice paper
300g firm marinated tofu, thinly sliced

Dipping sauce:
Juice of 1 lemon
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 cm piece fresh ginger, sliced

• Soak rice paper sheet in warm water until soft and pliable (about 30 seconds).
• Place a softened rice paper sheet on a board. Spread and layer a small amount of each vegetable, 2 pieces of tofu and a few Vietnamese mint leaves on the top third of the paper.
• Roll up the rice paper, tucking in the edges. Place on a platter or tray. Continue with the other sheets of rice paper until all the filling is used.
• Mix all the ingredients for the sauce together.
• Serve rice paper rolls cold or at room temperature, and use sauce to dip rolls into.
• Vegetable mix, spices and flavouring can be varied according to taste.
• For variety, use minced chicken or pork, cooked in Asian spices in the filling.
• If you are preparing food for people on a gluten-free diet, always check the ingredients on all food labels, especially any prepared items like sauces.
