Fresh spring rolls are so delicious, and it's dead cosy to sit at the table and assemble your favourite rolls with the kids. Here we're serving them with plenty of veg, fresh herbs, prawns and the most beautiful sauce. Enjoy!

Directions

1. Cook the noodles according to the packet, let them drip off and blanch with cold water.

2. Thaw the prawns if frozen. If bought unpeeled prawns, you can pre-pick them now, or let the family pick them at the table. It takes a while, but it's super cosy!

3. Wash cucumber and apples. Clean the bell pepper and peel the carrots. Cut the lot into thin strips and place on the table in small bowls.

4. Mix soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce and peanutbutter in a bowl, or give it a whirl in a mini chopper.

5. Nip the coriander leaves off the stems and place in a bowl. Coriander really splits the waters in many families, so for the sake of the mood around the dinner table, it's a good idea to leave coriander as optional.

6. Fill a tray with cold water and place on the table with all the sides. Call in the family and start putting together your favourite rolls.

7. Soak a piece of rice paper in the water for 5-10 seconds. It's allowed to be a bit stiff when it hits the plate. Place your favourite fillings in the middle, fold the sides in and roll up. Dip the rolls in the yummy sauce, and eat 'til you burst!

8. Enjoy!

Tip

Tasks for kids in the family: There's lots of chopping to be done today, so let the kids help cut cucumber, apple and bell pepper. They can also help stir the sauce - and of course help taste it.Rice paper is usually found in the aisle with coconut milk and Asian specialities.
