First off, I’d like to say, one day someone will realise I’m a catch. Secondly, and a note to both myself and you – do not make rice paper rolls after a glass of wine.
Despite the fact this recipe may look faffy, it is in fact only mildly faffy.
So, I was kindly sent a selection of Street Kitchen kits to whip up in the kitchen. Ironically, a few days before they arrived, I forgot they were coming and picked up their Vietnamese rice paper roll kit because it looked so bloody good and I fancied making something a little different!
The kit contains:
? Rice noodles
? Rice paper rolls
? Hoisin dip
and it was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l.
Then I picked up a bag of Linda McCartney frozen Vegan Duck. Sillily, I didn’t check whether it was coeliac friendly for my mumma and although the roll kit is vegan and gluten free, unfortunately the duck contains wheat. So, if you are coeliac, you’ll need to find an alternative vegan duck, or if you’re not vegan just go for the proper stuff!
I was so surprised at how incredible the duck is. I would 100% have it again and for how simple it is to cook, it’s a huge win for me. I’ve also had feedback on the recipe as it was originally shared on my insta and everyone who’s tried the duck has absolutely loved it despite initially being a skeptic like me!
So yes, this entire meal is actually pretty simple to make and if you’re cooking for a group, would make a great starter or side dish to a stir fry.
1 Street Kitchen Vietnamese Rice Paper Roll kit (mine was purchased in Tesco)
1 bag Linda McCartney Vegan Duck
- Cook the duck on the hob with a tbsp of oil for 8-10 mins, halfway through add 50ml water (this is important – if you’re like me and skip steps, don’t skip that)
- While you’re cooking the duck, soak the noodles in a jug of boiling water for 10 mins, drain and set aside.
- Keep an eye on the duck, but cut up some spring onion, cucumber and grate a carrot. I was going to add some avocado – but wine happened.
- Once all is cooked and noodles soaked – soak the paper rolls in water for 20 secs. BEWARE. I recommend a big board to put them on. Soak each one individually and lay them flat on the board straight away. They’re sticky af and end up looking like the ugly lumps in my pictures. And those were the good ones.
- Now for assembly! Add some duck, noodles and veggies et voila. Roll the lil beauties up and drown them in the hoisin.
You’d never know they were vegan!
Give them a go and let me know your thoughts – especially on the duck!
