I love cold rolls!! very easy to prepare and highly interactive..!
basically you find some vegetables which you like, a protein of choice, a sauce and rice paper rolls and off you go...!!!
the meat can be left overs or something really simple like blanched prawns. veggies typically are bean sprouts, cucumber, carrots, coriander...and there's also some rice vermecelli and toasted peanuts involved...
here's the rice paper soaking in hot water with a pinch of sugar added. What's the sugar for?? Hmm...read somewhere (can't remember now) that it gets rid of the slightly off taste of rice paper or something like that?
Usually i lift it out of the water with a chopstick or fork and lay it on the plate..
pile on the filings..
ready to eat!
