  • 500 g mushrooms button or cup, sliced
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic grated or minced
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 yellow capsicum (pepper) sliced
  • 1 carrot grated
  • 4 rice paper sheets
  • sriracha (optional)
  • kewpie mayo (optional)


  • To make the sauce, add the soy, sugar, vinegar, garlic and sesame oil to a pan over medium heat and simmer for a minute or so until the sugar has dissolved
  • Add in your mushrooms and allow that to cook, stirring occasionally for a couple of minutes until the mushrooms have softened and the sauce has thickened slightly
  • Make a slurry by mixing the cornflour into the water until it is fully incorporated with no lumps
  • Pour the slurry into the mushrooms and quickly mix it in then stir until the sauce becomes thick and glossy
  • Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and toss until they fully coat the mushrooms then turn off the heat and set aside until needed
  • Working one at a time, rinse your rice paper roll under water until just moistened on both sides then lay out onto a clean cutting board. If you'd prefer to use a plate, rub it lightly with a splash of sesame oil to prevent the rice paper from sticking to it
  • Lay your veggies onto the rice paper in any order you like. This recipe did mushrooms, avocado, capsicum, carrot then sauces, which provides the easiest assembly to roll
  • To roll, begin by folding both sides over towards the middle, then repeat with one of the longer edges. Once you have 3 sides sealed, tuck the last edge tightly over the filling and roll it up to form a nicely sealed rice paper roll
  • Repeat with the remaining rolls and enjoy!
