Most supermarkets now stock oriental ingredients, such as rice paper ingredients. Keep them as a store cupboard ingredient as they are great for a last minute starter or snack - or you do is soak them in hot water and then fill with your favourite ingredients. Be careful when handling them as they tear quite easily.
- rice paper sheet
- 1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
- 75 g piece cucumbers
- 4 green onions, shredded
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- 4 tablespoons hoisin sauce
- 50 g fresh coriander
- 350 g lean cooked chicken, shredded
- Place the rice paper wrappers in a heatproof bowl and cover with hot water, leave to soak for 5 minutes until soft and pliable.
- In a separate bowl, toss together the carrot, cucumber, salad onions and sesame seeds.
- Drain the rice paper on a clean tea towel and spread 1 Tsp of the hoisin sauce across the centre of each. Sprinkle with a few coriander leaves. Place the vegetables and then the chicken on top. Make sure that you don't over fill them as they may split if you do.
- Fold 2 sides in, then roll up to make a neat cylindrical shape. Serve immediately with extra hoisin sauce to dip into.
Yummy and lots of fun to make! I must say Bergy's look a heck of a lot neater than my first few attempts! I used lettuce instead of cucumber and these made a lovely lunch! DH liked them with hoisin sauce to dip into, I liked them with your floating chili soy dipping sauce. Thanks for such a healthy, delicious recipe - I'm going to make them with char sui next time!
I love rice paper rolls- You did say to fill with "my: favorite ingredients so I made them vegetarian using finely chopped lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, Pea shoots, green onions, & coriander. I used Hoisin inside and served wi th the dipping sauce from Baked Lumpia Rolls. I only dipped the rice paper for a minute in hot water doing one at a time. Served as a pre lucheon appetizer with a glass of cold Reisling wine. Thanks Lene you have wonderful recipes.
