Avocado & Mango Rolls

Mango and Avocado go together so well especially with a bit of cilantro. These are great, but I overfilled mine which made it a bit messy to eat. The Spicy Mango Sauce is reallly good!

Avocado & Mango Rolls
3oz rice vermicelli
Rice paper wrappers
Mango, cut into slices
Chopped lettuce, romaine (I used swiss chard)
Salt and Pepper

Prepare the vermicelli according to package directions and set aside. Fill a pie plate with warm water and add one rice paper wrapper and soak until soft. Remove it from the water and lay on plate. Pit and peel the avocado and cut into strips. Place 2 or 3 avocado strips down the center of each wrapper. Add a few strips of mango, then rice noodle and lettuce. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with cilantro.
Roll up and transfer to a serving plate and repeat with the remaining. Serve with Spicy Mango Sauce.

Spicy Mango Sauce
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and chopped
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup mirin
1/4 cup orange juice concentrate
1 tsp Asian chili paste
In a sauce pan, combine all ingredients and simmer over low heat to blend the flavours, about 15 minutes.
Puree and serve at room temperature.
