 Well the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, Spring is upon us. What better time to try new fresh recipes with some herbs from the garden!

I got this recipe while on an overnight cruise in Halong Bay in Hanoi – I thought I would share, as they taste yummy, and are gluten-free and dairy-free!




Serves 4

Spring Roll Ingredients

300g Prawn slices, boiled, de-veined and cut lengthwise

50g Chicken breast, boiled

150g Rice vermicelli, boiled al dente

100g Spring onions

50g Bean sprouts

Lettuce leaves

Fresh coriander or basil leaves

Rice paper


  • Take one rice paper and lay it on a clean damp towel
  • Stack a small amount of lettuce, beansprouts, herbs and rice noodle
  • Fold over two sides of the rice paper to enclose the filling and roll over once
  • Place the spring onion along the rolled up section
  • Take one piece of chicken and prawn and lay them alongside the spring onion
  • Slowly roll until the end, making sure the filling is compact
  • Repeat the process for the remaining sheets of rice paper
