Instructions
  1. Cook vermicelli according to packet instructions.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all other ingredients (except the rice paper sheets).
  3. Drain and add vermicelli, mixing thoroughly with your hands.
  4. In a separate large mixing bowl, place enough hot water to submerge rice paper sheets.
  5. Soak the first rice paper sheet in hot water for about 20 seconds or until pliable (don't soak for too long, as it will split).
  6. Lay rice paper sheet on a clean board.
  7. Place about 1/10 of the mixture in a line down the centre of the sheet, slightly towards the side closest to you.
  8. Fold in the outer edges, and then roll tightly.
  9. Repeat until you run out of mixture.

These can be served with sweet chilli sauce or a combination of one part hoisin sauce, one part fresh peanut butter, 1/2 part lime juice and some chopped fresh chilli. And they can also be made with tofu, as described above, or with prawns (shrimp).

To incorporate prawns, omit tofu and lay three peeled and deveined cooked prawns over vermicelli mix before folding the rolls. Use with a dipping sauce of your choice.
