The options are pretty much endless when it comes to rice paper rolls, they can be packed
with what ever veggies and protein of choice. I have a love for Japanese inspired cooking
and I am soon going to take classes with Yoshiko Takeuchi, I can’t wait to get learning about
the traditional plant-based Japanese superfoods and how to incorporate them into recipes.

1 Small Bunch of Coriander
1 Small Bunch Mint
100g Rice Noodles
1 Head of Butter Lettuce (optional)

Method

1.  Marinate the tofu in the oil, seeds, maple, tamari & chilli for around an hour, then fry off
and set aside.

2.  Cook the rice noodles in boiling water then allow to cool and add in the chopped herbs
shred & slice the veggies

3.  For the rice paper – get a clean tea towel or chux cloth and lay it down on the bench with
a bowl of warm water next to it, a lot of people make the mistake of leaving the rice paper
sheet in the water for too long until it breaks apart but all you need to do is place it in the
water for a couple of seconds then lay it on your damp cloth which will help it to soften
and not stick to the surface.

4.  In no particular order add in your filling then roll & enjoy with a sauce that you like,
I just had tamari!
