Vegan Rice Paper Rolls

I always add fermented vegetables to fresh rice paper rolls. They add a lovely tang to the filling and a whole lot of gut supporting goodness too. The dipping sauce in this recipe is so delicious and so much healthier than anything store bought.
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Course: Main Course, Snack
Cuisine: Asian
Servings: 2


  • 6 pieces rice paper (spring roll paper) I love the Spiral Organics Rice paper
  • 100 g vermicelli rice noodles (approx.)
  • 6 tsp sauerkraut or kim chi
  • ½ red capsicum/s -sliced into 6 strips
  • ½ avocado/s -sliced into 6 strips
  • 6 lettuce leaves -small ones rolled up (or halve large ones)
  • 6 sprigs fresh mint leaves (or Vietnamese mint)
  • 6 sprigs fresh coriander or basil (regular or Thai basil)
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds to garnish (optional)

Dipping sauce

  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp rice malt syrup
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Pinch chill flakes -to taste


  • Start by putting the noodles into a bowl and covering with boiling water whilst you prepare the other ingredients.
  • To make the dipping sauce, combine all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. If the sauce is too thick, you can always add a little more water, teaspoon by teaspoon.
  • Prepare your vegetables on one plate so you can work quickly to assemble each roll. Drain the noodles once they have softened into a bowl.
  • Wet a chopping board so it is damp. Take a sheet of rice paper and run it under luke warm water so both sides are wet. Lay it flat on the chopping board (it will continue to soften as it sits).
  • Place the ingredients horizontally, across the middle of the rice paper. 1 tsp of the sauerkraut or kim chi, a slice of capsicum and avocado. A piece of rolled lettuce, a sprig of mint and coriander in each, followed by about ¼ cup noodles.
  • Fold the top half of the rice paper down, then fold the sides in and roll towards you tucking the ingredients in to form a neat roll.
  • You can also sprinkle with black sesame seeds to serve. Enjoy immediately with the dipping sauce.


  • Store the sauce in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • The rice paper rolls can be stored in an airtight container lined with baking paper and covered with a wet cloth. The paper does go a bit sticky with storage so they are best enjoyed fresh.


Add meat

If you’re not vegan, feel free to add in seafood or chicken or any leftover meat really.


Replace the peanut butter with tahini.


Replace the tamari with coconut or liquid aminos.


Leave the black sesame seeds off.
