Prawn and Veggie Rice Paper Rolls

Rice paper rolls are such a great summery or light lunch option. They’re incredibly versatile, just use whichever veg/salad and protein source that you have on hand. And I promise that they are not as tricky to make as they seem (or I imagined them to be)!

Quick tip:

Only dip the rice paper sheets in the water for a few seconds before placing them on the damp paper towel. If you soak the sheets for too long they will become really sticky and hard to roll up

 

Adaptations:

For this recipe, I used prawns, carrot, capsicum, and cucumber, but feel free to change it up! You can use chicken, tofu or meat and whichever salad or vegetables you like or have available
