Veggie Rice Wraps

as seen on The Marilyn Dennis Show. 
Yesterday I was watching the Marilyn Dennis Show and they were exploring vegan and vegetarian recipes. This was one that looks delicious and I wanted to try to recreate it. Below are the directions from the website, and a link to the video segment, so you can learn how to roll them properly. 

Quantities and vegetable selection may vary from what is suggested. Below is the suggestion for one wrap.
  • 2 sheets Rice Paper 
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 beet, steamed and sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 inches cucumber, sliced into long strips
  • 1/4 cup baby spinach
  • 2-3 sprigs fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup glass noodles (optional)
  • salt/pepper to taste

Soak one piece of rice paper in warm water until soft. Remove from water carefully, allow excess water to drain, and lay out on flat surface. Arrange veggies in a row along centre of rice paper. Add noodles first if using and greens last. Leave about 1 1/2 inches at both ends. Fold in opposite edges and than wrap up sides. Place second piece of rice paper in water to soften. Pull out of water carefully, allow excess water to drain, and lay out on flat surfac. Place roll along centre of second piece of rice paper and wrap, folding side edges in first and then rolling.
Tips from Meghan Telpner
You can use any assortment of veggies- raw, steamed, baked, or roasted. This is a great thing to make at the end of the week when you have small amounts of leftovers remaining. Rice paper is a great alternative to heavier wraps

Also here is another take on a sauce you might want to try with your wraps: 
In a food processor, blend together coriander roots, raw garlic, small hot red chillis and canned pineapple. Once blended, add fish sauce, the juice from the canned pineapple and a good squeeze of lemon juice.
