Print Savoy cabbage and sesame spring rolls

These crispy vegetarian spring rolls call for quite a few ingredients, but you should have most of them in your cupboards. They're very quick to prepare and fun to roll up – if you're feeding a few people, employ the hands of your guests. Try dipping in sweet chilli sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 piece fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 fresh red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 bunch spring onions, finely sliced
  • 1 small Savoy cabbage, shredded
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 100g rice vermicelli (boiled in water for 5 minutes and well drained)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp mirin, optional
  • 1 handful fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • Spring roll wrappers
  • Oil for frying, e.g. vegetable or sunflower

Method

  1. Fry the ginger, garlic and chilli in the oil in a wok on a medium heat. Before they colour add the spring onion and cabbage and stir fry until everything starts to wilt.
  2. Add the sesame seeds and toss. Cook for a further few minutes
  3. Add the noodles and all the rest of the ingredients, apart from the wrappers. Stir really well.
