Today I want to share with you a recipe for Vietnamese vegetarian fresh rolls. It all started with my obsession last year wanting to buy the table ware they would be selling during the VitAsia promotions at the Lidl. I love Tokyo Design and we have quite a lot bowls here at home, but the little plates and bowls from the Lidl seemed perfect to add to my collection.
When the BF tipped me saying, the Lidl is having your fave promotions again, I couldn’t wait and rushed to the Lidl the next morning. I was lucky and scored me some bowls and soy sauce platters, so I could complete my set with the plates bought last year.
Now as I was walking there, I saw they had more interesting VitAsia products: from sushi rice, wasabi paste, to mung bean noodles, lychees and lots of sauces. I instantly thought, wowsers, I need to get me some of those. So I bought some mung bean noodles and some lychees from that selection and also bought some carrots, chinese cabbage, spring onions and went home to make this yumminess.
It turned out so great, I just have to share the recipe with you guys. I got inspired by the picture I saw on Instagram from Sofie Speisekammer.
