Makes 12. Preparation: 30 minutes.
Peanut & coriander dressing
¼ cup smooth peanut butter
2 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
1 cup coriander, roughly chopped
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 teaspoon fish sauce
½ cup water
¼ tsp ground chilli powder
Salt, to taste
Rice paper rolls
2 Lebanese cucumbers
1 red capsicum
3 sprigs coriander
1 bunch fresh mint
12 rice paper roll sheets
For the dressing: Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Whizz on high until the dressing is smooth. Season with salt.
For the rice paper rolls: Cut the avocado in half and remove the seed. Slice the avocado flesh lengthwise while in the husk and then scoop out. Cut the cheeks off the mango and slice the flesh lengthwise in the skin, then remove from the skin. Thinly slice the cucumber and capsicum lengthwise. Wash the coriander and cut into long pieces. Remove all the leaves away from the stalks on the mint and set aside.
Dip each rice paper roll sheet into warm water for 30 seconds, lay on a clean bench and work quickly to create the roll with the ingredients you have prepared. Serve with the dressing.
