Print Sprout top and sesame spring rolls

Brussels sprouts makes a very English addition to this Asian classic: stir-fried veggies and noodles nestled together in wrapping papers and fried until golden and crisp. For a lighter morsel, brush your rolls with oil and bake at 180C for 15 minutes, turning them over halfway through. Meat-eaters can add in cooked prawns, or shredded cooked duck or chicken.
