Hi Deerest Friends,
It’s a beautiful summer day here and it’s the sort of weather where you want to eat fresh, healthy food but its hot so you don’t always want to eat huge amounts of food and feel full and sluggish. That’s where today’s tutorial comes in. I really wanted to do a DIY today but I couldn’t figure out what to write about. So I started to make lunch and I realised this is a great recipe and one I should share. Now I obviously didn’t invent rice paper rolls (I’m not that good) but this is my way of making them by hand rather than buying them already made.
So Let’s Get Started!
You Will Need
-Baby Spinach Leaves
-Sweet Chilli Sauce
-A pack of Dried Rice Paper Sheets
-A Container filled with Lukewarm Water
-A Clean Tea-Towel
NOTE: There are no amounts given as you estimate how much you’ll need depending on how many rice paper rolls you want.
Begin by chopping your carrot, cucumber and baby spinach leaves into strips
Now mash your avocado using a fork
Place each rice paper sheet into the container filled with lukewarm water and wait for about 30 seconds or until they become soft and pliable. Only do this with one sheet at a time or they will all stick together
Place each sheet on a clean tea-towel and pat dry
Place your rice paper sheet on a plate and start by smearing mashed avocado down the centre
Now add some carrot on top of the avocado,
Then add the cucumber,
And add the spinach leaves and been shoots.
Now fold the bottom of the rice paper sheet up onto the filling and then fold both sides in. Serve with Sweet Chilli Sauce.
And You’re Done!
These are so delicious and so versatile. I’m a vegetarian so I have mine with just veggies or some tofu but you can really put whatever you want in these and of course this can be done with meat (Crab and Prawn seem to be very popular). This is such a nice thing to make for lunch and if they are kept cold these last very well so you could take it to work or school. This can also make great finger food for cocktail parties or also make great entrees at a dinner party as they are not too filling but full of flavour.
