Rice paper rolls for dinner. It’s always best to make your own rice paper roll rather than pre-making rice paper rolls.
It gives the family or company time to bond and of course you can make your roll as big or small as you want.
Now how easy is it to prepare and put together? This easy!
So, what are the main ingredients and I’ve added a few tips to putting it together.
I’m going to list this in the order I put my rice paper roll together.
Rice Paper Rolls – best to get them from an Asian grocer rather than your local supermarket like Coles or Woolworths. Have a bowl of hot water to put the rice paper roll in to soften it up ready for rolling.
Lettuce – usually it’s prepared in big pieces but you can also chop em up into smaller pieces.
Mint Leaves & Greens – I like it with mint leaves but there’s other types of leaves you can use to mix it up.
Rice Virmicelli – thin rice noodles you can get from any supermarket or Asian grocer. I don’t like to put alot but some people like to pile this onto their roll.
Cucumber – not necessary but gives the crunch in the roll
Prawns – just boil and peel them. If you’re using larger prawns I like to cut them in half
Pork – boil some pork belly and then cut them into slices
Hoisin Sauce – get this from your local Asian grocer. Start with a bit of oil in a pot on medium heat, add some chopped up garlic, then add the hoisin sauce mixture, add a pinch of salt, a spoonful of peanut butter (yup peanut butter) and then add some boiling water. Make sure to stir constantly.
That’s it. Not hard at all and the best thing about it is that it’s quite healthy minus the sauce.
