Ingredients (serves 4)
150g dried rice vermicelli noodles
16 small round rice paper wrappers
1 oak lettuce, leaves separated, washed, dried
2 Lebanese cucumbers, halved, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup mint leaves
1/2 cup Thai basil leaves (see note)
250g (2 cups) roasted pork, cut into strips
1/3 cup sweet chilli sauce
1 lime, juiced
1. Soak noodles following packet directions. Drain. Refresh in cold water and drain.
2. Half-fill a shallow dish with warm water. Dip 1 rice paper wrapper into water. Place on work surface. Stand for 20 to 30 seconds or until soft enough to roll without splitting. Place lettuce at edge of rice paper. Top with noodles, cucumber, mint, basil and pork. Roll up, folding edges in to enclose filling. Cover rice paper rolls with a damp tea towel to prevent drying out. Repeat with remaining rice paper wrappers, noodles, lettuce, cucumber, mint, basil and pork to make 16 rolls.
3. Combine sweet chilli and 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice in a screw-top jar. Secure lid and shake until well combined. Serve rice paper rolls with sweet chilli dipping sauce.
Thai basil: This purple-stemmed, green-leaved herb is widely used in Asian cooking. It has an aniseed aroma and a subtle licorice-like flavour. Regular or sweet basil is a suitable alternative.
Cost per serve using leftover roasted pork.
