  • 1 cucumber (julienned)
  • 1 avocado (sliced)
  • 1 cup red cabbage (thinly sliced -100 g)

Peanut Butter Sauce

  • 4 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • water (to thin)
  • chili flakes (to taste)

Instructions
 

Prepare the Ingredients:

  • Cook the sliced chicken and noodles as per instructions.
  • Julienne the cucumber and carrot, slice the avocado, and thinly slice the cabbage.

Make the Peanut Sauce:

  • In a bowl, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, minced garlic, honey, and a bit of water to achieve the desired consistency.
  • Adjust flavors with chili flakes or soy sauce as desired.

Assemble the Rolls:

  • Soak a rice paper wrapper in warm water until soft.
  • Lay it on a clean surface and place a small amount of each filling ingredient (start with the lettuce) on the wrapper, leaving enough space at the edges to roll.
  • Fold in the sides and roll tightly. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  • Serve: Cut the rolls in half, if desired, and serve with the peanut sauce for dipping.

Notes

 
  • Don’t overfill the rolls, as this can make them difficult to roll and more likely to tear.
  • The rolls are best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in an airtight container with a damp paper towel over and under them to keep them from drying out.
  • Feel free to customize the filling according to your preferences or dietary needs (Shrimps, only vegetables...).
