Vegan Rice Paper Rolls


Something filling yet light, done in a jiffy! I had very little left in the fridge, just a bit of salad mix, but in the pantry I had some rice paper, vermicelli and dried gluten meat. So I put the 'fake' meat in a pot with a little vegetable stock (made with an organic veggie cube) and cooked it until soft. Then I cut it into little strips (actually, Arantxa did it - see photo).  I soaked the vermicelli in boiling water and then drained and rinsed them. To assemble the rice paper rolls you will need to line the table with clean tea towels, then soak the rice paper in hot water until soft, top with salad, the vermicelli and the gluten meat strips.



 To see how to fold the rolls (step by step) you can have a look here. If you have time you can fold the rolls adding herb leaves and flowers. Keep the rolls covered with a tea towel until ready to eat. Serve with soy sauce or sweet chili sauce.

    1. Sono di natura appiccicosi, ecco perché si devono usare i canovacci invece di piatti e vassoi

  4. Yum, rice paper rolls are one of my favourites. Great way of using up a few leftovers, and also a fun way to entertain - I often like to just put everything out on the table and left people make their own rolls.

  5. I like to do it too with nori, or salad leaves or burritos, but these are a bit sticky, and you need to soak them in hot water, maybe a bit messy :-).

  6. I love rice paper rolls! I started to make this more than regular Japanese deep fried spring roll/egg roll because it's healthier and easier. I love that transplant rice paper which shows the ingredients inside! :)
