Refreshing and colorful salad wrapped in rice paper and two dipping sauces (peanut sauce and spicy hoisin sauce) to enjoy your vegan rainbow summer rolls!



For Peanut Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon hot water
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic chili sauce (optional)

For Spicy Hoisin Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce

For Summer Rolls

  • 10 - 12 rice paper
  • 1 bundle of rice vermicelli noodle, cooked according to the package
  • 1 small avocado
  • 1/4-1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/4-1/2 orange bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/4-1/2 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 small carrot, cut into match sticks
  • 1/2 English cucumber, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 1 small apple, cut into strips
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for peanut sauce and set it aside. Do the same for spicy hoisin sauce. 
  2. Cook the rice vermicelli noodle according to its package. Drain the noodle and rinse with cold water and set it aside.
  3. Prepare all the vegetable and cut into thin strips.
  4. Wet the rice paper quickly with water by submerging it in a big bowl of water. Take it out and place it on a glass plate. If you place it on a wooden board, the rice paper might stick to it. The rice paper should still feel pretty hard.
  5. Start piling all the vegetables, apple, and noodles on top of rice paper. It is always easy to roll the small size summer roll than a big one, especially if this is your first time. Try not to stuff your roll with too many ingredients.
  6. By the time when you are done piling all the ingredients, the rice paper should be soft to the touch.
  7. Wrap your roll like you would burrito.
  8. Place prepared rolls on a glass plate and assemble the rest of the rolls. 
  9. Enjoy two different dipping sauces. 


  • You can customize these summer rolls in any way you'd like. Feel free to skip and/or add ingredients you might enjoy in the summer rolls.
  • Chili garlic sauce in the peanut sauce is optional. I personally LOVE spicy food and I thought it would balance the sweetness of the peanut butter. You can use half the amount or skip it altogether.
