Instructions

  1. Prepare fillings

    • Cut, slice and shred all vegetables and fruits accordingly.


  2. Cook and colour cellophane noodles

    • Fill a small saucepan with two cups of water, add butterfly pea flowers and bring to simmer. Continue to simmer until the water turns rich cobalt blue. Remove the flower.

    • Bring the blue water to boil. Place a bundle (approx. 40g) of cellophane noodles in the boiling water and cook the noodles over medium heat until the noodles are cooked through or completely clear in colour.

    • Drain the cooked blue cellophane noodles with cold/tap water and divide into 2 portions. Drizzle half the noodles with 1 tbsp of lemon juice (the blue noodles will change from blue to violet or pink).

  3. Wrap and Roll

    • Soak a sheet of rice paper wrapper in lukewarm water for around 10 seconds or until it gets softened. Remove from water carefully. Lay-flat and straighten out the softened rice wrapper on a damp tablecloth or handkerchief. 

    • Arrange assorted shredded veggies near bottom of the rice wrapper.

    • Fold the bottom of wrapper over the filling in the center. Fold uncovered left and right sides inward, then roll the whole wrap away from you tightly.

    • Using flower cookie cutter, cut 3 flowers from carrot slices.

    • Prepare the dip for veggie rolls. Mix 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp lemon juice together evenly.
