Rice Paper Rolls

  1. Boil a pan of water and add noodles. Cook for 2 minutes or according to package instructions. After cooking, drain and rinse the noodles under cold water. Prepare all the filling ingredients beforehand and have them within reach. 
  2. Fill a large bowl with warm water and submerge a sheet of rice paper for 5 seconds. Remove the rice paper and let any excess water drip off. Then, place it carefully on a clean dish towel or board to prevent sticking.

Fold the bottom edge of the rice paper over the fillings until they are fully covered. Fold the sides and continue rolling until it is sealed. Repeat with the remaining rice paper wraps.
