Recipe: Vegetarian Rice Paper Rolls

Sorry about the lack of posts recently – we’ve been having all kinds of technical problems here in I Spy Plum Pie world, but we’ve almost fixed all the gremlins and will resume regular programming! Hurrah!

The other week I spotted this Vermicelli noodle salad recipe on the Vegie Project blog and wanted to try it, so I thought I’d make a Vietnamese themed night of it and make some rice paper rolls as well. They are so simple and delicious, and were a great way to start our Vietnamese feast!

I had just received a new veggie box delivery so we made the rice paper rolls using mainly ingredients from that, including purple carrots which made them a little different to normal!

Ingredients List

  • Rice Paper Sheets
  • Rice noodles
  • Assorted vegetables – I used carrots, snow peas, capsicum and sprouts
  • Dipping sauces – I used sweet chilli and kecap manis



  1. Julienne slice all your veggies so they are roughly the same length
  2. Prepare the noodles as per package directions
  3. Soften the rice paper sheets with some water
  4. Get rolling! I find it easiest to place all the filling towards one end, tuck the top and bottom in and then roll, making sure to keep it nice and tight!
  5. Dip into the sauce of your choice and enjoy! Easy as that!

The Vermicelli Noodle Salad was super simple too – crisp up some tofu in the oven, slice up veggies, mix together a dressing and soften the noodles! Delicious!

    I have so many apples from our beautiful apple tree at the moment, so I made a cheesecake, I have named it the Voodoo Cheesecake, inspired by the ingredients, black salted caramel and apple. It’s all gone now.
    I love the rice paper rolls the purple carrots look amazing contrasting with the green, nice one.
