How To Make Fresh Spring Rolls
Tonight’s dinner incorporated two ingredients I’ve never used before…and was quite nervous about using! 1. Rice Sticks: Much thinner than rice NOODLES, they are similar to cellophane or glass noodles and take just 3 minutes to cook! 2. Rice Paper Wrappers: The egg roll wrapper’s chewier, rice cousin. If you haven’t guessed – I made Fresh Spring Rolls for dinner! Print this recipe! The good news is that fresh spring rolls are surprisingly fool-proof, thanks to a strong rice paper wrapper that seems rather impenetrable to anything besides a knife and my chompers, and that they are INSANELY, amazingly, delicious! First we start with zee fillings: CucumberCarrotsGreen onionExtra firm tofu (pressed, cut into strips and tossed with some dipping sauce)Rice sticksAvocadoBasil I laid them out next to a clean, dry plate and another plate which I flooded with warm water. I was kind of freaking out because right out of the package the rice paper wrappers are pretty thick, sturdy and…textured? SO good!
