Tired of serving the usual fried rolls a.k.a Lumpiang Shanghai? Why not serve fresh spring rolls to your family? It is healthy, easy to make, and require less time. Fresh spring rolls are loaded with the good stuff like shrimp, noodles, some vegetables, and fresh herbs.
My sister came over this weekend. One of her food requests is fresh spring rolls. Since we are still in quarantine I just made use of what is available in my kitchen. This is my take on the usual fresh spring rolls. I use crabsticks instead of shrimps. So let’s get started!
• 5 pcs. Rice Paper
• 5 or more Leaf Lettuce
• 1 roll of Mega Prime Choices Glass Noodles Vermicelli
• 5 pcs. Crabsticks
• 1 small cucumber, julienned
• 1 small carrots, julienned
• 20 pcs. Fresh wansoy leaves
• 1 cup water (for soaking the rice paper)
1. Soak 1 roll of Mega Prime Glass Noodles in hot water for 5 minutes or until the noodles are cooked then drain and set aside.
2. Soak the rice paper in a plate until it is soft then pat dry. Do this one at a time or just before assembling.
3. Lay the soaked rice paper on a plate, put the lettuce in the middle, then top it with about 15 strands of glass noodles followed by carrots, cucumber, crabsticks, and 5 pieces of wansoy.
4. To roll, fold the sides of the rice paper first then roll it carefully.
5. Repeat steps 2-5 for the rest of the ingredients.
2 Tbsp. of hoisin sauce
3 Tbsp. of peanut butter
1/2 cup of warm water
Mix all the ingredients until well combined and free from lumps. You can adjust the measurements depending on your taste preference.
