Makes 8 Rolls 

Rice Paper Rolls Ingredients:

  • 1 x fiid Aromatic Lentil & Sweet Potato Curry
  • 50g x Vermicelli Rice Noodles 
  • 8 x Rice Paper wraps
  • 1 x Avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1 x Carrot, chopped into matchstick size
  • ¼ Red Cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 Cucumber, sliced
  • 1 handful of fresh Coriander
  • 1 x Lime

Peanut Dipping Sauce Ingredients:

  • 6 tbsp smooth Peanut Butter (Shane's Tip: I use this liquid gold from Nutshed)
  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp Soya Sauce
  • 1 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 x Garlic Clove, crushed
  • ½ Lime, juiced


  1. Heat your fiid Aromatic Lentil & Sweet Potato Curry according to instructions on the pouch
  2. Boil water for the noodles and rice paper
  3. Pour boiling water over the vermicelli rice noodles and allow to sit
  4. Check instructions on the rice noodles for exact timing and requirements needed for that brand of noodle
  5. Pour the remaining boiled water into a wide bowl and allow to cool while preparing the rest of your ingredients. You will use this to prepare your rice paper wraps so try to use a bowl big enough that the wraps can be placed in flat to soften
Prepare the Peanut dipping sauce:
  1. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk to combine. You may need some boiling water to bind it together.

Assembly steps:

  1. Once you have all your ingredients prepared you can set up your assembly station
  2. Get a tea towel that is lint-free and lay it flat on your worktop. This is where you will assemble the rolls and the towel will help to absorb excess water from the rice paper
  3. Place the rice paper in the water and allow sit for around 20 seconds until it feels soft and pliable (how great a word is pliable by the way?)
  4. Lay one rice paper out on the towel flat at a time, being careful not to rip the fragile beauties
  5. Now we start to fill. It's important to not over fill the rolls; leave about an inch from the edges free from any filling and aim to cover around 1/3 of the paper itself.
  6. Let's go: Start with the drained noodles, add 2tsp of the fiid Aromatic Lentil & Sweet Potato Curry on top of the noodles.
  7. Next top with a small amount of each of your other ingredients: carrots, avocado, cucumber, cabbage and a few coriander leaves.
  8. Fold in the sides of the rice paper wrap and starting from the bottom, rolling upwards tightly so the filling is securely enclosed.
  9. Repeat with the remaining wraps and dig in.
