Instructions
 

  • Cook the vermicelli noodles and plunge into a bowl of ice water before using.
  • When they cool drain and set aside.
  • Dampen a clean kitchen towel and lay flat on the surface that you will be rolling on.
  • Chop and prepare all your vegetables before working with the rice paper.
  • Soak the rice papers one at a time in a large bowl of warm water.
  • Once they are pliable, lay them on your damp kitchen towel.
  • If you are using a double wrapper (Nicole’s preference) lay them one on top of the other.
  • Start with the vermicelli and layer a small amount in the wrapper then add in the various ingredients (do not overfill).
  • Tuck in both the ends of your rice paper and begin rolling like a burrito.
  • Place on your dish and start the next one.
  • Serve with our Asian Peanut Sauce or an Asian chili sauce that you can purchase in most grocery stores.
