Fresh rolls are VERY fun to make, can encase pretty much any tasty thing, and can be made really cheaply! The wrappers I got a week or two ago cost $2 and there seem to be about 500 left in the package. They are a great vessel for leftovers, vegetables you don’t know what to do with, chicken, shrimp, tofu, salad, and various noodle varieties. Here are some of my favorite fillings.
fresh roll rice paper wrappers
cucumbers (Japanese cucumbers are best), julienned
enough rice vinegar to coat chopped carrots & cucumbers
vietnamese fish sauce (optional)
cold cooked bean vermicelli, leftover pad thai, or bean threads (pictured)
thai basil + mint + cilantro, chopped roughly
Stir sugar & salt into vinegar to dissolve. Add a little fish sauce if you’re so inclined.
Toss with carrots and cucumbers in a bowl.
Arrange all of your fillings in an assembly line.
Dip rice sheet into warm water for 3 seconds or as directed.
Place on a clean surface. Place fillings in a little mound on the wrapper as pictured. LIKE A BURRITO.
First fold the bottom half, then the sides. Finally, roll it up lengthwise. LIKE A TINY LITTLE BURRITO.
Serve with peanut sauce, soy sauce, sweet & sour, whatever you desire. EAT A BUNCH OF THEM ♥
