Rice paper – need help

I got a bunch of rice paper sheets from a friend a while ago, and today I’ve decided to finally cook some. Do you have any ideas what I can do with them? I’ve never tried anything like this before, so I’d really like something fool-proof.

    I don’t know how to use them either! I look forward to when someone will tell us :)

    You make yummy Vietnamese spring rolls of course! Just run the sheets through luke warm water to soften. Lay one out on your plate, fill with lettuce leaves, daikon radish slivers, carrot, slivers, fresh mint, and sliced fresh chilies. As well as choice of meat: sweet sticky marinated pork, chicken, shrimp marinated in lime juice, or all of the above. Roll into a spring roll. Serve with a dipping sauce of half and half lime juice and fish sauce, sliced fresh chilies and chopped mint. Half and half red wine vinegar and fish sauce is yummy too. So good! I promise!

      Maybe should clarify that the meat should be cooked. :) You eat the rolls cold.

      Wow, you’re good! Thank you! You sound like you eat things like this all the time. When I roll it, should I just roll it like a pipe or should I close the ends like an envelope? If you get what I mean:)

        haha, yes I worked at a catering company and we did a lot of asian inspired dishes. Asian is my favorite! I suggest folding in the sides so the stuffing doesn’t fall out. But the sheets are pretty delicate, so they break easily. Hope you love it!
