Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls with Mixed Mushrooms
Accredited Practising Dietitian (DAA, Australia) and Assistant External Affairs Officer of Hong Kong Dietitians Association, Miss Doris LAU said, "This rice paper roll is made with different kinds of vegetables, including mixed mushrooms, cucumber and lettuce. It is a healthy snack for vegetarians since the roll itself contains a lot of dietary fibre, while the rice paper is low in fat and calories."
Ingredients: (To make 6 rolls)
Vietnamese rice papers 2 pieces
Mint leaves 2 pieces
Mixed mushrooms (king oyster mushroom, and marmoreal mushroom) 100g
Cucumber 50g
Lettuce 2 pieces
Cooking Method:
1. Rinse the cucumber and lettuce.
2. Boil the mushrooms with hot water. Shred the mushrooms and cucumber. Set aside.
3. Dampen the Vietnamese rice papers with water. Put the shredded cucumber, mint leaves, shredded mushrooms and lettuce in the middle of each Vietnamese rice paper.
4. Fold each rice paper double, then fold up one-third over the filling. Continue to roll the rice paper to enclose the filling.
