The perfect recipe to avoid turning on that oven in the summer heat…but who am I kidding, these are so satisfying all year round. Great to batch prep. Can be made vegan or vegetarian. Gluten Free.
- 4 rice paper wrappers
- 2 oz (~100g) rice noodles (vermicelli)
- 1.5 cups of any leftover protein (I made them with 225g of shrimp, also delish with chicken and tofu)
- 2 cups of fruit or vegetables of choice such as
- purple cabbage, thinly sliced
- shredded beets or carrots
- bell pepper, thinly sliced
- radishes, thinly sliced
- 1/2 of an avocado, thinly sliced
- ¼ cup of mint and/or basil leaves, chopped
Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce
- ¼ cup warm water
- 2 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
- 1 tbsp lime juice (approx ½ lime)
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- Pinch of chili flakes ( ¼ – ½ tsp)
- 1 tbsp Soy sauce (tamari or coconut aminos for a gluten free substitute)
- Cook the noodles according to package directions, drain water through a strainer and set aside (keep them in the strainer in case you need to run more water over the noodles- see below).
- Meanwhile, combine all ingredients for the peanut dipping sauce and whisk with a fork until smooth. Set aside.
- Prep your fruits or vegetables and set aside.
- To prepare the rice paper wrappers: Fill a large pan or baking dish with warm water, 1-2 inches deep. One at a time, dip the papers into the warm water for 15-20 seconds until they become soft, but are not breaking apart. Remove the paper from the water and place on a flat working surface. Pat dry if needed and immediately start assembling your wraps with desired ingredients (except for the sauce), leaving room at the top and bottom of the wrapper to be folded in. Note: if your noodles have started clumping together, run a bit of warm water over them to loosen them up again.
- Fold in the top and bottom of the wrap, fold one of the lengthwise sides over and roll it up like a burrito!
- Dip in peanut sauce and enjoy!
For leftovers, wrap each roll in saran wrap to avoid sticking and tearing.
