  2. Bring quinoa and water to the 
boil in a small saucepan. Simmer gently for 10 minutes or until tender. Rinse under cold water. Drain. Place 
in a large bowl.
  3. Add shallots, pistachios, chillies and beans.
  4. Slice asparagus into halves or quarters lengthways, depending on thickness.
  5. Slice in half widthways. Place in a heatproof dish. Pour over boiling water. Rinse under cold water. Drain well.

Top with avocado, herbs, asparagus and sprouts. Spoon over 2 tablespoons quinoa mixture. Fold in one end of rice paper over the filling. This will 
be the bottom of the roll. Then firmly roll up from one side, leaving the 
top of the roll open.
