Baked Rice Paper Spring Rolls

I’ve had these rice paper wrappers in my cupboard for ages, when I first realised I was gluten intolerent I thought these might make up for the lack of bread but they’ve been gathering dust for months now and I thought I really must do something with them. 

These little spring rolls make a healthier alternative to the deep fried ones, as delicious as they are, and are pretty straightforward to make.  I went for a veggie option but I’m sure some shredded pork, duck or chicken would go very well in these.

Ingredients:

Makes about 8

8 rice paper wrappers

6 spring onions, shredded

1 carrot, grated

A couple of handfuls of spinach

A teaspoon or two of curry powder

Some soy sauce, I used Tamari

A clove of garlic

About an inch of ginger

A handful of dried vermicelli rice noodles ( the really fine ones)

Some sweet chilli sauce for dipping

Some spray oil

Method:

Grate the ginger and garlic into a hot pan, add the carrot and spring onions, fry for a min or so, add curry powder and soy, fry for a min.  Then add your spinach, cook quickly until starting to wilt then set aside in a bowl.  Soak your vermicelli rice noodles and add to the veg mix.

Preheat your oven to 220 degrees.

Soak your rice paper wrappers one at a time in some warm water for about 10 seconds, I think its easier to do this as you go so they don’t dry out or stick together.  Lay out your wrapper and dollop a little of the veg and noodle mix along the centre, roll and wrap, tucking the ends in as you go and lay on a greased baking tray.

Once they are all rolled and on the baking tray, spray genourously with oil, I guess you could brush some oil on if you don’t have any spray oil.

Put into a hot oven for about 20/25 min until crisp.  They don’t need to brown, mine did slightly but as long as they are crisp they are done so have a little check after 20 min and then decide.

Serve with some sweet chilli sauce.
