How To Make This Rice Paper Rolls Recipe
1. The first thing you want to do is decide which vegetables you would like to put in the rice roll.. for this recipe I chose carrots, garlic, bell peppers, white cabbage and celery.. Cut all vegetables in slices. (See pic below)..
2. Put about 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a wok on medium heat.. You can use a frying pan. Toss in all vegetables one at a time in the pan/wok starting with the chopped garlic cloves and stir. Mix and sauté all the vegetables until they are soft but still hard and crunchy. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper and set aside in a bowl.
3. Now take the rice noodles and let them soak in warm water for 10 minutes. The rice noodles will get nice and soft. After ten minutes place the rice noodles on a cutting board and cut it accordingly to fit the rice roll.
4. Toss the rice noodles with a tablespoon of soy sauce in the bowl with the cooked vegetables and stir until all ingredients are well mixed.
