This is a wholesome side dish but can also make a nice light dinner. The fillings can be so versatile based on what you have at home.



1 cup Slice mushrooms

1 cup Spinach

¼ Red onion

1 Garlic clove

½ Red pepper

1 tbsp Mixed herbs

2 tbsp Olive oil

1 tsp pink salt 

1 tbsp Freshly grounded black pepper

2 Large vietnamese rice paper wraps


  • Prepare a large plate with a little water on
  • Soak the rice paper in a little warm water in a bowl, dont over soak and the paper will be a little firm and easy to work with
  • Place the soften rice paper onto the large wet plate
  • Dice the onion, pepper & garlic
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non stick frying pan
  • Add the onion and garlic and saute till soft
  • Add the pepper, mushrooms and mixed herbs
  • When the mushrooms are soft stir in the spinach
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Top the rice paper with 2 full tbsp of the mushroom & pepper mix
  • Leave enough space to make a folder parcel with the edges of the rice paper
  • Fold the left side of the rice paper over the mixture
  • Follow with folding the bottom half upwards and away from you
  • Fold the right side of the rice paper over the mixture
  • Lastly complete the closing of the parcel by folding the top part over and towards you
  • Heat the remaining oil and fry the parcel fold side down first to seal the dumpling
  • Allow 60 secs or more for the parcel to crisp on a medium heat
  • Turn the parcel over when the first side is golden and crispy
  • The dumpling parcel is complete when both sides are golden
  • Transfer the dumpling parcels to a serving plate


This is a versatile mixture with a fried egg also working extremely well
I like to use chopsticks to gently move the parcel around the pan when checking if it is cooked.
