Rice wraps are seriously one of the easiest ways to throw a bunch of crunchy ingredients together for a refreshing snack. You can put almost anything in these bad boys…. today, I chose cucumber, carrots and bell peppers.
You can find rice paper at most grocery stores, look for them in the international aisle or with the sushi offerings.
Working with rice paper can be a bit sticky however. Follow the directions on the package (I did not… oooppppsss- I immerse mine in room temp water for 20 seconds or so and then shake water off and use immediately).
Lay the rice paper on a dry surface, add your insides (veggies and such).
Fold the two side edges in and then roll.
You can dip with any kind of sauce as well. I decided to simply use some tamari with grated ginger and minced garlic for mine.
There are simply no limits to the ‘insides’ that you can use. I kept mine simple (the only thing missing was sprouts, you can never go wrong with sprouts!)
Maybe a dessert wrap with apple, honey and cinnamon? Perhaps a little breakfast fun? A Mexican fiesta with beans and guac? <— upcoming post?!?!
