1199 per serving


  • 4 ounces whole-wheat vermicelli rice noodles
  • 8 spring roll wrappers
  • fresh chives, (optional)
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1-1/2 cup carrot, cut into matchsticks
  • 3/4 cup cucumber, cut into matchsticks
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped


Step 1

Pour boiling water over vermicelli rice noodles and soak 15 minutes. Drain and rinse. Divide into 8 equal portions. Fill a wide, shallow bowl with cool water. Working with one spring-roll wrapper at a time, soak until pliable, 20 seconds. Transfer to a flat surface and smooth.

Step 2

Place a layer of fillings on bottom third of wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2-inch border. Top with a portion of noodles and another layer of fillings.

Step 3

Fold bottom of wrapper tightly over fillings.

Step 4

Roll over once, tuck in sides, and finish rolling. Transfer roll to a plate and cover with a slightly damp paper towel. Repeat to make 8 summer rolls. Serve immediately with dipping sauce, or refrigerate, up to 2 hours.

Step 5

For the dipping sauce, combine 2 packets of hot mustard sauce and 4 packets of duck sauce. Stir and dip away!
