Oh, Vietnam! We are planning to go to Vietnam next autumn and I am totally into it. I close my eyes and I see pointy hats, small boats crossing Halong Bay and tons of noodles everywhere. So I decided to train my palate with these super SUPER healthy vietnamese rolls. I found the recipe in one of my favourite blogs (this) and I am really impressed by the ratio taste/calories: unbelievable (but believe me!)


Actually, the rolls were only the starter of an amazing sunday lunch, which also featured a superb fideuà made by my flatmate. Catalunya meets Vietnam. Spain meets South-east Asia. 



Yes, the fideuà was the best fideuà in the world!




for 8 rolls:

8 sheets of rice paper (asian shops)

mixed salad (red and green)

1 small carrot

1 small celery

2 big spring onion

8 big prawns

8 basil leaves

8 mint leaves


for the sauce:

2 spoons soy sauce

2 spoons water

1 spoon 1/2 white vinegar

1 spoon fish sauce

1 teaspoon sugar

2 spoons peanuts


Crush the peanuts in tiny pieces, add the rest of the ingredients and let it rest. Place the rice paper sheets in a bowl with cold water (2-3 at time), cut all the ingredients in sticks and make 8 rolls. As easy as that!
