Have you tried our brand new Pesto Princess Hummus yet? To celebrate the launch, we made these delicious, light and refreshing rice paper rolls. They’re totally dunk-worthy and much easier to make than they look. You don’t have to stick to the veggies in the recipe, you can use any selection of colourful, crunchy veggies that you have at your fingertips.
Give them a try this weekend! Find your Pesto Princess Hummus in top SPAR stores in the Western Cape.
With love from all at the Palace
You will need
6 Vietnamese rice papers
1 carrot, thinly sliced
1 small red cabbage, finely shredded
2 baby beetroots, cut into matchsticks
2 small cucumbers, cut into matchsticks
1 avocado, thinly sliced
Large flat bowl full of room temperature water
2 Tbsp sesame oil (optional)
Fresh chilli (optional)
1. Place the rice paper into the water and let it soak for a few seconds until it curls and becomes soft.
2. Take it out and place onto a clean, flat surface such as a plate or chopping board. Add small piles of mixed, sliced raw veggies into the centre of the rice paper – about 1/2 a cup.
3. Fold the sides in, then fold the bottom up and lastly roll the top over to make a neat roll. Voila!
4. Start again and repeat with the remaining ingredients until you have used them all up.
Serve with Pesto Princess Hummus as a healthy meal or snack. You can also mix in a little sesame oil and fresh chilli if you want to add a little extra kick!
