Rainbow Rice Paper Rolls

Rice paper rolls seem tricky right? Or is that just me?

This recipe contains my trick for rolling them though like with everything, it gets easier the more you do it. And a lot of it is 'feel.' By that I mean embracing the best amount of filling not to burst the roll. Either way, this recipe is delicious.

Fill these rolls with whatever you like. Less of this. More of that. Perhaps whatever is left in the fridge?

Use this recipe as a fun and delicious way to include more fruit and veggies. Just promise me this, don't you dare skimp on the peanut-ginger sauce, it's beyond yummy!
