Method

  1. Mix the shredded lettuce, mint and carrot. Soften half the noodles from the Vietnamese spring roll kit for 5 mins in boiled water, then drain.
  2. Soften half the pancakes, one by one, for 20 secs in hot water. Arrange a few prawns and some of the salad and rice noodles on each pancake, then roll up, folding in the ends to secure.
  3. Pack in a lunchbox and put half the dressing from the kit in a separate container.

Cook's tip: For a tropical snack to include alongside the spring rolls for lunch, try packing some dried mango and fresh coconut chunks mixed with a few pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds for crunch.
