  1. Begin by cooking the rice noodles according to the package instructions.
  2. Once cooked, rinse the noodles under cold water and set them aside.
  3. Slice the cucumber and carrots into thin strips and set them aside as well.
  4. Take your rice paper wrapper and soak it in warm water until it softens.
  5. Lay the softened rice paper on a flat surface and arrange a small amount of noodles, prawns, herbs, cucumber, carrots, and lettuce in the center.
  6. Roll up the rice paper, tucking in the sides as you go, until you have a neat spring roll.
  7. Repeat the process until you’ve used up all your ingredients.
  8. For the peanut sauce, combine the peanut butter, hoisin sauce, lime juice, crushed garlic, and chilli sauce in a bowl and mix until smooth.
  9. Serve your Vietnamese fresh spring rolls with the peanut sauce for dipping.


  1. Don’t overfill your rice paper. It can tear if it’s too full.
  2. Make sure the water you’re using to soak the rice paper is warm, not hot. Hot water can make the rice paper too soft and difficult to handle.
  3. Use fresh herbs for the best flavor.
