Taste like heaven and are basically negative calories. WINNING.
If you have yet to discover the wonder and joy of rice paper wraps, you have not lived. I repeat…. HAVE NOT LIVED.
These little wraps are the perfect vehicle for veggies/fruit/protein, basically whatever floats your boat. The calorie content in them is negligible which obviously leaves more room for Nutella later.
The only downside — they are tricker little suckers to wrap. Once you get the hang of it you will be fine, but I have to warn you the first few might be a little rough haha. ?
Ready to get started? Here is what you need:
- Rice paper wraps
- Red cabbage
- Black sesame seeds
- Fresh Cilantro
Step 1: Chop up all your ingredients very fine.
Step 2: Get a large bowl and fill it with warm water.
Step 3: Completely submerge your rice paper wrap for about 5 seconds in the bowl of water. Then, place it on a flat surface and let it sit for another 5 – 10 seconds until it becomes sticky.
Step 4: Put your ingredients of choice in the middle of the wrap, and wrap it up like a burrito!
Typically these are eaten with peanut sauce (which is not so good for you + annoying to make) so I decided just to eat mine with some spicy thai sauce I had in the fridge and soy sauce. Tasted delish to meeee.
