Have you ever made your own “Vietnamese Spring Rolls”? If not, then you have to give these a try! Not only are they tasty and fresh, but they are super healthy and easy to make!! 🥕🥒
* 1 package spring roll rice wrappers , found in the Asian foods section at the grocery store
* 1 package vermicelli rice noodles , found in the Asian foods section at the grocery store
* 1 large carrot , peeled and shredded or sliced into thin strips
* 1 large English cucumber , peeled and sliced into thin strips
* 1 pound small, cooked shrimp (or 1 pound precooked roasted chicken, shredded)
* Soy sauce for dipping
1. Cook vermicelli noodles in boiling water, for just a few minutes, according to package instructions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
2. Gather all topping ingredients together, including chopped veggies, and cooked shrimp (or chicken).
3. Add about 1 inch of water to a large, deep dish, or pie pan. Place one rice wrapper into the water and let soak for just 10-15 seconds. It should still feel pretty firm as you remove it and lay it on your counter or plate. (It will soften up as you add the filling ingredients, but If you let it soak for too long it will get too soft and will tear when you roll it up.)
4. Layer 1-2 slices of each veggie, a few shrimp (or chicken), and a pinch of noodles on the 1/3 of the spring roll that is closest to you.
5. Fold the sides of the spring roll in over the ingredients. Then pull the side closest to you up and over the ingredients, sealing everything together tightly, and rolling it up like a burrito.
6. Finish off all the ingredients by making more rolls and dip in the soy sauce to ENJOY!!
