These rolls are a great choice for nights when you crave something light yet satisfying. For a twist, we’ve swapped out traditional rice noodles for protein-dense quinoa. 

  • Prep time 35 minutes
  • Total time 35 minutes
  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

Peanut Dipping Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Asian chili sauce (such as sriracha)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
Rolls:
  • hot water
  • 12 rice paper wrappers (9 inches)
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup each julienned English cucumber and carrot
  • 1 sweet red pepper , thinly sliced
  • 1 avocado , peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken

Method

Peanut Dipping Sauce: In bowl, stir together peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, chili sauce and 2 tbsp water until creamy. Remove one-third of the sauce to separate bowl; set aside.

Scrape remaining sauce into serving bowl; top with green onions (if using) and sesame seeds. (Make-ahead: Omit sesame seeds. Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 2 days. Stir in sesame seeds just before serving.)

Rolls: Fill 9-inch pie plate with hot water. Soak each rice paper wrapper in water until soft, 5 to 10 seconds; pat dry with tea towel. 

Place cilantro in centre of each wrapper; stir reserved dipping sauce into quinoa and spoon over top. Layer each with cucumber, carrot, red pepper and avocado. Top each with scant 1/4 cup chicken. 

Working with 1 wrapper at a time, fold bottom over filling; fold in sides and roll up. Place on damp tea towel–lined baking sheet; cover with another damp tea towel to prevent drying out. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 6 hours.) Serve with dipping sauce.
