Gluten Free Vietnamese Spring Rolls

During my trip to Hanoi, Vietnam in November 2018 I fell in love with Vietnamese Fried Spring Rolls, I couldn’t get enough of them, so I learnt how to make my own at home!

Here is the recipe for gluten free Vietnamese Fried Spring Rolls:


  • Rice paper sheets/wraps
  • Rice vermicelli noodles
  • Prawns (cooked or raw) (optional)
  • Pork or chicken (optional)
  • Fresh mint
  • Fresh coriander
  • Finely chopped/grated carrot
  • Finely chopped/grated Red cabbage
  • Bean sprouts
  • Frying oil (vegetable, canola)

Tip: You can add whatever filling you like! Switch out the meats and vegetables for whatever takes your fancy.

  1. Soak rice noodles in cold water for about 20 minutes, drain well
  2. Combine all your ingredients in a bowl (except the rice paper sheets)
  3. Soak a rice paper sheet in warm water to soften for about 15 seconds. Remove from the water and place on a damp cloth on a flat surface
  4. Place a tablespoon of mixture in the centre of the sheet. Fold the bottom edge into the centre, covering the filling. Fold in opposing edges and roll up tightly. Tip: Wrap in a second sheet to help them hold together better
  5. Heat oil in a work or large skillet over medium heat. (I actually like to use my air fryer for this instead – 200 degrees C for about 20 minutes)
  6. Fry the spring rolls in batches of 3 or 4 until crisp and golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes. Drain and serve.
