-4oz of rice vermicelli or I used a quarter cup of rice
-tender lettuce, such as boston or oak leaves, I used baby bok choy
-1 large carrot, peeled and cut into thin stick, I grated mine into small peices, both work well
-1 small cucumber, sliced thinly
-6-12 small, thin scallions
-round rice papers
Ingredients that I added
-celery, cut into thin sticks
-a small handfull of bean sprouts
1-Fill up a bowl with warm-hot water.
2-Dunk the rice paper into the water so that the whole peice is wet. Do not leave it in too long. If it becomes too wet it will be difficult to use.
3-Hold the wet rice paper open in your hand and start to fill it with your delicious veggies! I did not take pictures of the folding process because I had a hard time with it ;)
4- I added my celery to the top just before the last fold to give it a nice touch.
3/4 cup of fish sauce
1/2 cup of granulated sugar (wisk the sauce and sugar together)
3/4 cup of freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice
1 large clove of garlic
1 to 2 thai chilies
It took alot of time to prepare these... but they were well worth it!
Give it a try!
