Rice Paper Rolls 🥗🍚📃🗞️ Light lunch comprised of store bought rice papers. You need to rehydrate them and add filling. I kept it vegan, so this is what I used: 🍍Ripe pineapple 🥗Salad leaves 🥒Cucumber 🌶️Bellpeppers and a little chilli (optional) 🌿Basil leaves 🍃Mint leaves I cut everything into batons, filled them and rolled them. Keep it in the fridge for 15 mins before having them, it'll be chilled or have your ingredients to fill really cold too. *Substitute pineapple for mango, add boiled prawns or Chicken to make it non vegetarian. It's all about what you have in hand, but the basil, mint, fresh leaves are a must and for crunch cucumbers. For the sauce it's super easy.
