I always see these in grocery stores and they look so hard to make. However, I attempted to make my own this weekend, and they turned out pretty yummy. Even made my own gluten free peanut dipping sauce! Superb!
Y’all it’s so simple. You will want to make a bunch for the week – and take these to work for multiple lunches. Healthy, fresh – fantastic!
First, you will need: lettuce, avocado, cucumbers and mint leaves. Optional ingredients include: shredded carrots, glass noodles.
You will have to buy the special rice paper from a grocery store. It is cheap and really easy to find. Prepare a round cake pan with hot water (not too full). Take one piece of rice paper out of the package and set it in the cake pan. Let it soak for about 2 minutes.
Gently pick up the rice paper and set it on a wet (not too wet) paper towel. This is so the paper will not break or tear. Place all your ingredients inside – lettuce, mint leaves, sliced cucumber and avocado.
Now slowly cover the veggies with one side of the limp rice paper and roll it up. You may need to practice with technique. I am still practicing as well!
For the sauce – just put 1 tbsp. of peanut butter in a bowl and mix in gluten free Bragg Liquid Aminos. Yum, now you have the perfect dipping sauce.
