Cooking method

To make spring rolls

  • Bring 2 saucepans of water to the boil. Soak vermicelli noodles for 25 minutes in cold water, until soft, and drain. Put noodles in a saucepan and boil for 1 minute; strain, run under cold water to prevent further cooking.
    Bring other saucepan to the boil, cook the bean sprouts until soft, about 1 minute; strain, run under cold water. Cut chicken fillets into thin strips, if you are using tofu you can also cut into tin strips.
  • Heat the wok with the oil, add the chicken or tofu and toss until cooked, approximately 4 minutes for chicken, 2-3 minutes for tofu.
    Dip rice paper into boiling water, one piece at a time, for 5 seconds and remove with a tongs before placing individually on a wet tea-towel and flatten. Layer a little of each of the ingredients horizontally in the centre of the rice paper starting with noodles followed by carrots, bean sprouts, lettuce, mint and basil leaves. Finish with the chicken or tofu on tofu on top and then roll it away from you, folding both sides as you start.
