Avocado Noodle Rolls

A healthier take on a fried treat. These air-fried avocado noodle rolls are a delicious and more nutritious way to enjoy fried food. The Chickapea noodles add protein and bring more substance to the rolls, making them more filling, and they can be paired with many different sauces depending on your taste. This recipe is vegan, gluten-free, and nut-free making it a great alternative to many other fried appetizers.

Recipe Notes:

  • If you do not have an air fryer or would prefer a healthier version of the recipe, these rolls can be eaten unfried
  • The mixture is delicious without the rice paper, served as a pasta or as a pasta salad
  • Oil spray comes in many varieties. Try finding an oil with a high smoke point and neutral flavor such as avocado oil or peanut oil.
  • If you are unable to find oil spray, try pouring regular oil into a clean spray bottle
  • Every air fryer is a bit different and will require a different cooking time
  • For best results try not to crowd the basket of your air fryer
