Fresh spring rolls

About this recipe

These fresh Vietnamese-inspired rolls – also referred to as “gỏi cuốn,” summer rolls, salad rolls or rice paper rolls – feature chewy rice noodles, crisp veggies and fragrant herbs wrapped in rice paper. While there are variations in Chinese and other Asian cuisines, this style of dish is most closely tied to Vietnamese cuisine. For more plant-based Vietnamese inspiration, try our bánh mì breakfast sandwich recipe, or check out the blogs of Veggie Anh or The Viet Vegan.

More typically, protein is added to spring rolls in the form of shrimp or tofu, but this plant-based version incorporates JUST Egg Folded. The savory, fluffy strips of vegan eggs are delicious with the Southeast Asian flavors in these rolls, and using the easy-to-make egg patties will save you a ton of prep time. All you have to do is heat them up in a toaster or microwave before slicing them into strips.

Serve these flavorful vegan spring rolls as a light appetizer or pack them for a satisfying on-the-go lunch. This recipe includes a simple sesame soy dipping sauce that makes use of pantry-friendly ingredients, but these spring rolls are also delicious paired with peanut sauce, hoisin-based dipping sauces or Vietnamese nước chấm-style sauces.

Cook the rice noodles


Cook or soak the vermicelli noodles according to the package directions, until tender. Rinse and drain the noodles, then cover them and set aside. If they’re sticking together when you start to use them later, just give them a rinse with cold water in a colander.

02 / 06

Heat the JUST Egg Folded


Heat up the JUST Egg Folded in toaster, air fryer, skillet or microwave according to the directions on the box. Transfer to a cutting board and slice each egg into thin strips.

03 / 06

Prepare the other fillings


Slice the cucumber, carrot and bell pepper into thin strips, each about 4 to 5 inches long. Clean the lettuce and, if needed, tear the leaves into smaller pieces to fit inside the rolls. Remove any tough stems from the cilantro and mint leaves. If you’re using any other fillings, prepare those now and arrange them in small bowls or on a tray for easy grabbing while you make your rolls.

04 / 06

Soak the rice paper


Line a large plate or cutting board with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel. Nearby, fill a pie pan or similar shallow dish with about an inch of warm water. Add a sheet of rice paper to the water and let it soak for 5 to 15 seconds until it’s fully pliable but not so long that it starts falling apart. Remove it from the water and carefully lay it out on the paper towel-lined plate.

05 / 06

Fill the spring rolls


As with making burritos, fill the center area of the roll with fillings, leaving about an inch of space on each side and 2 to 3 inches above and below for folding in the edges and rolling. Onto each rice paper round, layer lettuce, rice noodles, strips of JUST Egg Folded, sliced vegetables, cilantro and mint leaves. Fold in the side panels and roll everything up snugly. As you make them, you’ll get a feel for how much filling will fit and how to roll them tightly without tearing the rice paper. Repeat the process until you’ve made your desired amount. If you’re not eating these rolls immediately, keep them separated and covered with damp paper towels or plastic to prevent them from sticking together and drying out.

06 / 06

Make a dipping sauce and serve


For serving, whisk together a dipping sauce of your choosing, or simply use a ready-made sauce like sweet chili sauce. This recipe includes a simple sesame soy dipping sauce, but spring rolls are also delicious paired with peanut sauce, hoisin-based dipping sauces and Vietnamese nước chấm-style sauces.
