Instructions

For the Wraps

  • Soak one piece of rice paper in warm water until soften and pattern in paper is less noticeable.
  • Pull out of water carefully, allow excess water to drain, and lay out on flat surface.
  • Arrange veggies in a row along centre of rice paper. Add noodles first if using and greens last. Leave about 1 1/2 inches at both ends.
  • Fold in edges that meet the veggies and than wrap up sides.
  • Place second piece of rice paper in water to soften.
  • Pull out of water carefully, allow excess water to drain, and lay out on flat surface.
  • Place roll along centre of second piece of rice paper and wrap.
  • Other tips – you can use any assortment of veggies- raw, steamed, baked roasted.
  • This is a great thing to make at the end of the week when you have small amounts of leftovers remaining.
  • Rice paper is a great option to heavier wraps.
  • If making the night before they are going to be eaten, or if you have leftovers, either wrap air tight in plastic wrap or lightly cover with a damp cloth in a food storage container.
  • Also good to enjoy with your favourite pesto- coriander, basil, mint, kale…

For the Sauce

  • Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
  • Will keep in a stored container in the fridge for up to five days.
  • Can also be used as a salad dressing.
