Easy Entertaining: Spring Rolls with a Twist

Crystal Rice Paper Spring Rolls

6 rice-paper spring-roll wrappers

1 bowl water

Selection of edible flowers

1 avocado, sliced


1/2 cup red cabbage, sliced

1/2 cup carrots, julienne

1/2 cup sweet peppers, julienne

  • With all your ingredients at hand, soak a rice-paper wrapper in the bowl of water until soft.
  • Place on a wooden board and fill with ingredients. Remember to work backwards in terms of how you want the design to come out – I start with the pretty flower petals first and then layer with vegetables.
  • Fold the top and bottom sides over the filling, then fold the left side and finally the right until you have a snug package.
  • Serve with a sweet chilli dipping sauce.
