- The first and most important step is to have all of the vegetables washed and thinly sliced before you begin assembling.
- Soak the rice noodles in boiling water off of heat in a bowl until tender and follow directions on the packaging.
- Dip the rice paper wrappers in warm water for 10-15 seconds until they are malleable. Don’t let the wrappers become too soft, they are delicate!
- Lay the rice paper on the counter and begin layering the ingredients just off center.
- Roll tightly, folding in the sides.
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl
- Add water to desired consistency
Now you’re ready to serve!
