Rice Paper Rolls- My new Burgers ;)

Posted on December 16 2019

While shopping at Food Hall the other day I came across the Rice Paper’s and actually got them to try the rice paper vegan bacon. I wanted to try the traditional vegan eggs/ bacon for breakfast (event though I have no freeking idea how the non- vegan version even tastes. I wanted this as an option for some of my clients transitioning from being meat eaters to vegan’s. I will probably also make them as soon as I have time to cook breakfast in the morning and don’t have to hurry for clients or my early AM workout’s  .

But also got in some fresh organic veggies today morning and tried the rice paper vietnamese rolls! LOVED THEM! I made the peanut and thai dipping sauce at home too and the entire prep took me no more than 30 minutes! So here is the recipe I used, but feel free to add literally whatever (including fruits) to the filling.

Filling-

Main protein source:

  • Adzuki beans
  • Wild Rice

Both are available at Food Hall.

Wild Rice is loaded in fibre and has many other benefits. Read some here! 

Adzuki beans provide essential amino’ s (proteins) and keeps you full for long!

  • Avocado
  • Yellow Zucchini
  • Miniature Peppers (multi color)
  • Cilantro & Mint (whole) for added freshness
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots

I cut the veggies using a spiral cutter but you can cut however you like it.

Peanut Sauce-

  • Light Soy Sauce (like 1 tbps ish- as per taste really)
  • Tahini (1 tbps)
  • Peanut butter (2 tbps)
  • Minced garlic
  • Some chilly flakes (or sirarcha)

Thai Sweet Chilly sauce:

 

  • Light soy sauce (2 tbps)
  • Coconut Vinegar (1 tbps)
  • Nando’s hot sauce (2 tbps)
  • Sweet chilly sauce (low sugar/ low sodium) (3 tbps)

The rice paper- 

All ingredients are easily available. I picked everything up from Food Hall.  But Nature’s Basket too should have everything. 

The assembly-

Ok here is the funny funny part. Take a big plate/ bowl and fill with luke warm water. Dip one single rice paper for 5 seconds and quickly get it out into your cooking board. Now do this . You will have to make them one at a time and frenetically run around in the kitchen and assemble them fast else they will start to stick.

Thats it! Eating them is a bit messy, but so are burgers. Do not over dip the sauces since they are empty calories and not the healthiest. But everything else is exceptionally healthy and no oil used.
