  • San Choy Bow Rolls with Sauce

San Choy Bow Rolls with Sauce is a beautiful fresh summer dish that is light but very filling.

We also have the traditional San Choy Bow recipe, but this is something a bit different. This is super healthy and if you are vegetarian or vegan, it is so easy to change up the ingredients to suit.

The only tricky thing is separating the rice paper rolls when they are wet!

  4. Using a large container place 3 cups of warm to hot water in and have a clean wet tea towel on the bench beside container of water.
  5. You will now place one rice paper sheet in the water for 20-30 seconds until just bending then remove and place onto wet tea towel. This will make sure the rice paper does not stick to your bench and is easy to roll.

  2. Finely chop coriander and sprinkle into dipping sauce.

  • You can substitute pork mince for chicken mince.
  • Dipping sauce will keep for up to 5 days if kept refrigerated at all times.
