Mint and Rice Noodle Spring Rolls

Save to My Recipes

Wrapping spring rolls is a balance between getting them tight enough to hold together, but not so tight the thin wrappers break! It’s like riding a bike: Once you’ve got it, you’ve got it, and then spring rolls can be very quick and fun to make.

Difficulty: Easy

Hands-on: 15 minutesTotal: 20 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 oz.) clear bean thread noodles
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • ½ tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • ¼ cup shiitake mushrooms, diced
  • 12 spring roll wrappers
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and cut into matchsticks
  • 1 bunch fresh mint

Directions

  • Break noodles in half to make smaller pieces, then submerge in 1 cup hot water until soft, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the hot noodles with the soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, mushrooms, and carrots, tossing well to combine.
  • In a large shallow pan, carefully submerge spring roll wrappers, one at a time, in warm water until just barely soft. Remove from water and place a bit of lettuce in the center of the wrapper. Add about 2 tablespoons of noodles mixture and a few slices of cucumber and place 5 to 6 mint leaves on top.
  • Fold the bottom of the wrapper over the filling, fold in each side, then roll.
