These are a tasty appetizer that can be dipped or eaten by itself. There are many variations that I have heard of, but I have only tried to make the one. Easy to make, and even easier to enjoy.
For the rolls
- 1 (16 ounce) package rice paper sheets
- 4 green onions, julienned about 3 inches long
- 1 English cucumber, julienned
- 2 carrots, peeled, julienned, and cut into 3 inch strips (or shredded. Choice is yours)
- 1 (16 ounce) package rice noodles, cooked and drained
- 1⁄2 lb bean sprouts
- 1⁄4 cup chopped peanuts
For the Sauce
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 3 minced garlic cloves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar or 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- Combine all ingredients for the peanut sauce ahead of time, and set aside.
- In a medium pan, add about 1 1/2 inces of water in, and leave on medium to low head.
- place the rice papers in the warm water for no longer than 30 seconds, or until tender, but not falling apart.
- Set on counter or cutting board, and layer noodles, carrot, cuccumber, onions, sprouts and chopped peanuts. Be mindful that you still have to roll it up, so do not overfill.
- Drizzle peanut sauce over filling before rolling, or use as a dipping sauce.
- Other dipping sauces used are hiosin, soy, and a chili sauce (sambal Oklek-careful, if you haven't used this before, as it is quite hot).
This was so yummy! The sauce was super quick to make and was exactly the taste I was looking for. Thanks for posting!
This was great and was made even better by easy it was. Even though julienning vegetables is one of my least favorite things to do, as I have no handy gadget yet to help me, I still found that I could put this together much faster than I thought it would. And it transported very well for my lunch when wrapped in moist paper towels and placed in plastic baggie.
YES!! This is very, very close to how I have been making these! My kids even love them! I do add a bit of salt and pepper to the veggies as neither child likes to use the dip. Great recipe! Very healthy and fairly easy to make. Oh, I usually drop my carrots and green onions in some water for just a few seconds to soften...but not necessary.
