Chef Ray – Thai Spring Rolls

These were surprisingly easy to make. Healthy and delicious, great for school and work lunches.

From: Dixon, Jeremy; (2013) The Revive Cafe Cookbook 3

Makes 7

  • 100g thin rice noodles (vermicelli)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger or ginger puree
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped or crushed
  • 1 cup carrots cut into matchsticks (around 1 carrot)
  • 1½ cups onions finely sliced (about 1 onion)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cups white (green) cabbage thinly slice
  • 300g firm tofu crumbled
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon honey or date puree
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  • ½ cup coriander (cilantro)
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • 6 large wholemeal burritos or tortillas
  • oil for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • garnish: coriander (cilantro)
  • garnish: sweet chilli sauce
  1. In a pot stand the rice noodles with boiling water until they are soft. Usually takes around 2-5 minutes, however you are best to check the instructions on your noodles. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a different pan saute the ginger, garlic, carrots, onion and oil for around 5 minutes or until they start to soften.
  3. Add the cabbage and tofu and cook for another 5 minutes or until cabbage is wilted.
  4. Add the salt, honey, soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce and noodles and stir together.
  5. Add the coriander and sprouts and stir together.
  6. Place 1 cup of the mixture in the middle of a burrito. Bring sides in first and then wrap. Place on a baking tray lined with paper. Repeat for all 6 wraps.
  7. Brush with a little oil and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top for garnish.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes at 180°C (350°F) or until crisp and heated through.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.

If you enjoyed this recipe here is one I published a couple of years ago:
