For the sauce:

For the rolls:


  • 1 cup noodles use your favourite type

Alternative satay/peanut sauce you’ll need:


For the sauce:

  • Finely dice the ginger, chilli pepper and garlic and add to a mixing bowl.
  • Stir in the white wine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil and lemon juice well.
  • Place into serving bowls, one per person.
  • For the satay sauce, dice the ginger and garlic then mix in a bowl with the peanut butter, maple syrup, vinegar and soy sauce. Mix in a drop of water to thin it slightly.

For the rolls:

  • Grate the carrots and add in the sesame seeds, place in serving bowl.
  • Thinly slice the pepper and chop the peanuts. Place both in separate serving bowls.
  • Slice the spring onions – place in serving bowl.
 Chop or rip the salad leaves, don’t place in a serving bowl. Just kidding. Do it.
  • Rip the basil or coriander leaves, yep, place in serving bowl.
  • Optional: cook a few of your fave noodles according to packet instructions.
  • To soften the rice paper sheets, dip into a large bowl of warm water (think bath temperature) for about three seconds. You can also use a tray for this.
  • Fill your rice paper sheets with whichever ingredients you fancy.
  • Fold in both ends (at the long end), then wrap like a burrito. The rice paper will be very sticky, so do it carefully. That’s it.
  • Eat, and dip into sauce!


You can use whatever veggies you like in your goi cuon! Have a look in the cupboard and fridge and see what needs using up. We have lots more Asian-inspired food, too! Try this lush Asian creamy corn soup for something different, or these awesome fiery dragon noodles for a super-quick dinner that’s better than take-out. And make them snappy!
Please note that the nutritional information displayed does not include the optional noodles or peanut butter and maple syrup.
This recipe was inspired by the awesome cookbook 'Street Food' by Anne-Katrin Weber (in German). So good!
