Vegan rice paper rolls

4 Mar

I had a craving for something healthy and light for dinner tonight. On my way to the market I passed by a Vietnamese restaurant, and immediately thought of making these rice paper rolls. Most people will know that traditionally rice paper rolls are filled with prawns or pork. Lettuce, red pepper, carrot & mint :) All I did was omitted the meat. This recipe is extremely easy. All I used was 1. rice paper sheets (available at any Asian grocer) 2. Cos lettuce 3. red peppers 4. carrots 5. mint. Place the rice paper sheet in warm water for 30 seconds, move to a plate, then start stacking your ingredients on the bottom part of your sheet (much like how you assemble a burrito)  and Voila! It really is that simple! It is a great dinner idea because it is so easy, and nutritious. Mess around with the ingredients too, make it your own. As for a dipping sauce, because most Asian sauces are laden with refined sugar I decided to make my own. I just mixed Tamari soy sauce (wheat free), a little bit of honey and rice wine vinegar. You can find plenty of great healthy sauce recipes on the web as well 🙂 Happy eating!
