BrokeAss Gourmet

Vegetable Summer Rolls

This recipe proves, time and time again, to be the easiest, cheapest way to convince guests that you are a gourmet chef, specializing in exotic treats. Once you master the basic roll-up technique (it takes time but it’s worth it), feel free to get creative and fill these with everything from grilled pork to poached shrimp and fresh avocado.


  • 10 8" Rice Paper Spring Rolls $1.50 for 30
  • 20 fresh mint leaves $1 for a bunch
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into matchsticks $1.50
  • 2 carrots shredded $1
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into matchsticks $1
  • 2 scallions (green onions) cut into thin 2" strips $1 for a bunch

Recipe Serves 10


  1. Wet a wrapper under the tap or in a bowl of lukewarm water and shake gently to remove excess liquid. 
  2. Lay wrapper on a clean, dry surface. 
  3. Arrange a few pieces of mint in the center of the wrapper. 
  4. Lay 2-3 pieces of bell pepper, a generous pinch of shredded carrots, a few pieces of cucumber and 1-2 slices of scallions on top of the mint, making sure that all ingredients are facing in the same direction. 
  5. Once the wrapper is pliable enough to work with, tuck in the ends and roll up tightly, like a little burrito (don't worry if you mess a few up, this takes practice). 
  6. Repeat until all ingredients are used up.
  7. Serve sliced on the bias with your preferred dipping sauce.
