tuesday taste: vietnamese rice paper rolls
Todays taste is inspired by my wanting spring to arrive. Vietnamese rice paper rolls are one of the freshest tastes out there. Similar to a egg roll or spring roll, they can be filled with a variety of things. Most popular is shrimp with sprouts, lettuce, jicama, cucumber and pepper. My personal favorite rolls include mint, basil and cilantro which adds to the fresh flavor. They are usually served with a sweet/ spicy peanut sauce which compliments the fresh ingredients of the roll nicely.
