Vietnam is definitely one place that I still need to visit. But for now I will satisfy my cravings with these delicious rolls. These light rolls are filled with fresh vegetables and are wrapped in the typical rice paper which you can find in all Asia shops. If you want you can add some rice noodles, I left it by just having vegetables. It is the perfect party snack or great when you want to bring your family or friends together around the table and everyone can participate in the making. Jump to recipe
The rice paper sheets need no cooking, just some softening in warm water. Pull the sheet through the water and put in on a separate plate. The you start filling it with all ingredients and wrapping it.
I must admit, you need to get the hang of it how to roll this little buggers but hey it doesn’t need to look perfect. The rolling technique can be a little tricky at first but you will get there if you have done it a few times.
Fold down the sides first and then roll it as tight as possible.
