Another wonderful recipe from my dear friend Tanja Ting - born in Denmark, living in Ibiza, a former model, now goldsmith, mother of 2, an avid photographer, experimenting chef and above all seeker of healthy food, nourishing living, and well-being. In her book, Pure Goodness, Tanja gives you plenty of easy to make, tasty and healthy recipes for the whole family to enjoy. All recipes are gluten and sugar-free and the ingredients are easy to come by wherever you live. Tanja wanted to make a book where healthy eating can be delicious with recipes that are easy to follow.These Vietnamese rolls are such a treat for the whole family. I have made them with chicken but you can easily replace it with prawns, rice noodles or more veggies.
Vietnamese Chicken Rolls
Serves 4 Rolls:
400-gram free range chicken breast, cooked and cut into long stripes
12 round rice paper for wrapping
1 handful fresh coriander leaves
1 big carrot cut into thin stripes
1/2 an English cucumber cut into thin stripes
1 avocado sliced
1/4 iceberg salad sliced into long pieces
1 handful red cabbage finely sliced
1 red bell pepper sliced into fine stripes
1 small red chili finely chopped
1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
2 garlic clove, finely chopped
juice from 1 lime
3 tbsp fish sauce
2 tbsp honey
For the chili sauce simply add all the ingredients into a small bowl. With a fork whisk it all together and set aside.
When all your vegetables and chicken are cut and ready add some hot water to a bowl and place one piece of rice paper in the water. Let it soak for about 15 seconds until it gets soft. Then place it on a tea towel for the water to drain and after place it on a board. Then add a little bit of the different veggies, chicken and coriander. Don’t put too much otherwise, it will be difficult to roll. When you are ready to roll start by lifting the edge of the rice paper nearest you. When you are halfway fold the ends of the paper over the filling to close and continue to roll. Make sure you roll them tightly and repeat with the next roll. When this is done cut the rolls in half and serve them with some chili sauce.
