Posted by Sunsweet - Thursday, August 11, 2016

Kiss goodbye to the boring ham sandwich and packet of crisps combo. Elevate your packed lunches and picnics to a whole new level of healthiness and flavour with our Summery Rolls. At less than 100 calories per serving, our Summery Rolls make a light and super tasty appetiser, too.

Ingredients

60 g glass noodles (Asian supermarket) 
1 ripe mango 
2 carrots 
150 g California prunes 
1-2 bunches of Thai basil 
1 bunch of mint 
1 small romaine lettuce heart 
12 round rice paper sheets (approx. ø 20 cm)
4 tbsp. lime juice 
Salt & pepper
2 chillies, finely chopped  

Instructions

  1. Soak glass noodles according to package directions. Peel, core, and slice mango. Peel carrots and cut into slivers. Cut prunes in halves. Remove basil and mint leaves from stems. Wash lettuce and divide into large pieces.
  2. Soak rice paper sheets one by one for about 2 minutes in cold water and place on a kitchen towel, drain slightly. Drain the glass noodles and season with lime juice, salt, and chilli. Arrange 2 basil leaves and 3 mint leaves with some salad in the centre of each rice sheet. Place glass noodles, mango, carrots, and prunes on top. Fold sides a bit over filling, and then roll up.

Tip: serve with a dip of red and green chilli slices, chopped prunes, soy sauce, and sesame oil.
