My family loves appetizers and I usually make them every night. A regular we’ve been having lately is a rice paper, fresh spring roll.We add a variety of fillings such as sprouts, spinach, arugula, carrots, cucumbers, avocados, cilantro, mint, tofu, shrimp and chicken. To me they are like eating a mini salad before dinner.
We usually eat them with peanut sauce which Dr. J makes in bulk and we freeze- He will not let me share his recipe but you can google peanut sauce or buy it at Whole Foods.
These are very easy to make, we buy the rice paper at the Asian market-
Start by chopping up the fillings. Sauté tofu in sesame oil and use cleaned and cooked shrimp.
Each 'paper' circle is soaked for about ten second in a shallow pie dish filled with warm water and it becomes malleable.
