Summer rolls! They are easy to make and even easier to eat ALL THE TIME. all the ingredients for these are super cheap, which is why me and Michael used to make them a lot when we were both broke students. They make a great side to any asian inspired meal, or a great snack to have on hand.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-Rice paper rounds
-Bean thread noodles
-fried tofu, optional
Make noodles by placing in bowl and covering with boiling water. Strain and rinse with cool water after 15 minutes, so as not to over cook. Get all your supplies ready and easily accessible, because its better to do the next part a little quick. Soak rice paper in a flat bowl of warm water one at a time for 30 seconds to a minute, and then remove from bowl and add fillings. I find putting the cabbage and cilantro on the bottom works the best, then chopped veggies, then tofu on top. Roll the paper closed like you would a burrito; fold in the sides and then roll it together. The moisture of the rice paper will hold the whole thing together. And voila! repeat process until you’ve made enough little rolls to satisfy your appetite! I usually make a lot. Great with hoisin sauce for dipping!
