Easy Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls Recipe
September 7, 2012
We love these Vietnamese-style rice paper rolls in the warm weather months. They are a great choice for entertaining, or a weekend picnic. They are easy to make and easy to adapt with the ingredients that you have available – they can be adapted to make a vegetarian or gluten free option. This is a family friendly recipe, my children love to eat them and the left overs make a nice change for work and kinder lunches.
An easy Asian inspired family dinner. Perfect for a hot Summer dinner, entertaining or to take on a picnic. Change the filling for your own preferences - eg: chicken, tofu, or other vegetables of your choice.
