4 to 6 servings

  • 8 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded jicama
  • 1 cup pea sprouts
  • 1 cup julienne red and yellow bell pepper
  • 1 cup julienne cucumber
  • 1 cup diced firm tofu
  • Spicy pumpkinseed and cilantro dipping sauce:
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 piece star anise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup toasted pumpkinseeds
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon sambal chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Whisk the eggs with the flour, sesame oil, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper. Let mixture rest for 10 minutes, until foam settles. Put the egg mixture in a squeeze bottle.

  • Heat a non-stick pan over medium low heat and brush with olive oil. Drizzle the egg mixture in the pan in a zig-zag motion to create a lace pattern. Cook for approximately 1 minute, and set aside. Repeat with remaining batter.

  • To assemble the rolls, lay a crepe on a flat surface. Place mint and basil leaves on crepe. Arrange the vegetables and tofu on the crepe and start rolling the crepe into a cylinder. Cover each roll with plastic wrap to keep moist while making the rest of the rolls.

  • To make the dipping sauce, combine the vinegar, star anise, and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, and let simmer for 5 to 7 minutes until it reaches syrup consistency. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  • Blend the pumpkinseeds, cilantro, sambal chili, and vinegar syrup in the blender until thick. Season with salt.

  • To serve, place vegetable lace crepe on a plate, and drizzle sauce around plate. Serve fruits as a light refreshing side.
