Healthier spring rolls

    55 min

    A friend of mine made these spring rolls so I wanted to try making my own - they're not the deep-fried spring rolls you get from your local Chinese but a healthier version. It took a lot more work than I thought to conquer rolling the spring roll wrappers but it was worth it and we had good fun making them! They taste delicious dipped in sweet Thai chilli sauce and the raw veg give them a beautiful crunch.
