Lunch Inspiration: Rice Paper Rolls

This is a great meal to have any time of day. If you’re strapped for time, or just want something light, yet filling. Rice paper rolls are super easy and if you’re using fresh veges they are crispy, delicious and full of goodness!

What I used: avo, carrot, capsicum, spinach leaves and some chicken pieces.

Get some good quality rice paper rolls, make sure they don’t contain any nasties like preservatives, colours, additives or refined ingredients.

Ingredients

Rice paper

Warm water

Fresh veges chopped length ways

Meat (if desired)

Dipping Sauces (I used sweet chilli + ginger, and Tamari)

 

Instructions- it’s best if you set up a work station ahead of time to work through quickly and efficiently.

Soaking container, wet tea towl, veges, meat and of course the rice paper are all prepped and ready for show time.

 

Step 1: Place warm water in a container big enough to hold the rice paper when it is flat.

Step 2: Soak the rice paper for 30 seconds in the warm water, and have a wet tea towl on standby to place it on to, after it has soaked and become soft.

Step 3: Place on the wet tea towel, and flatten out all the edges.

Step 4: Place fillings of choice near the middle, on the edge closest to you, in a horizontal line.

Step 5: Wrap them up by tucking and rolling the rice paper away from you and closingΒ the outer ends as you go.

Step 6: Eat fresh with your dipping sauce.

Mmmm πŸ™‚ so tasty.
