Ingredients
Makes 4 rolls
  • 1 Avocado, julienned
  • ½ Aubergine
  • ½ carrot sliced into ribbons
  • ½ carrot, julienned
  • 1 red pepper, julienned
Instructions
  1. Slice the avocado, red pepper and ½ a carrot into matchstick sized pieces.
  2. I would suggest squeezing a little lime juice onto the avocado to prevent it from browning.
  3. Cut the aubergine lengthways into long think slices and then cut the slices into inch long strips to act as the wrap.
  4. Place the aubergine strips under a preheated grill and grill until they turn golden brown and soft to touch, turning over half way through.
  5. Using a mandolin slice the carrot into thin ribbons.
  6. Don’t panic if you don’t have a mandolin, using a vegetable peeler will have the same effect.
  7. Lay a ribbon of carrot on a chopping board and place an aubergine strip on top.
  8. Cluster a selection of your sliced vegetable matchsticks in the middle of the aubergine and carrot and roll up to form a tight roll.
  9. If they do not stay together you can pin it together with a cocktail stick.
  10. Repeat.
  11. Serve with a handful of lettuce and some juicy cherry tomatoes.
