A vegetarian and vegan cucumber spring roll recipe with lettuce, cucumbers, sprouts and noodles. This basic spring roll recipe with cucumbers uses low-fat and low-calorie ingredients including lettuce, bean thread noodles and bean sprouts, so it makes for a very light appetizer or small meal. You can also learn how to wrap spring rolls by following my illustrated step-by-step instructions here.

Ingredients:

  • spring roll wrappers
  • Approx. 1 cup of water
  • 3 large lettuce leaves, torn into strips
  • 1 cucumber, sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 cup cooked rice vermicelli or bean thread noodles
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil

Preparation:

Combine all the ingredients, except the water and spring roll wrappers in a large bowl and toss well.

Place the water in a shallow pan. Dip the spring roll wrappers in the water until pliable, one at a time. Fill each wrapper with 2-3 tablespoons of the vegetable filling. Place 2 or three basil and cilantro leave on top and wrap your spring rolls.
