Step by step

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients to combine. Add additional water if the sauce is too thick. Set aside.
  2. Working one at a time, soak the rice paper rolls in warm water until flexible (about half a minute).
  3. Lay the roll on a clean surface. About 1cm from the edge, stack a quarter of the red pepper, yellow pepper, shredded carrot & cabbage.
  4. Add 2 leaves of lettuce, an avocado strip and herbs. Roll, tucking in the edges as you go.
  5. Gently slice each roll in half and serve with tahini sauce on the side.
