Rice paper rolls
Soak the vermicelli noodles in boiling water to soften, then rinse them in cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain then chop into short lengths to make it easy to add to your rolls.
Lay each of your roll filling ingredients out along the bench.Pour boiling water into a shallow tray or dish that is wide enough to hold your rice paper wrap. Working with one piece of rice paper at a time, dip it in the water for a few moments until it is soft then place it on a clean area of your bench. Next, add some of each of your ingredients to the middle of the rice paper wrap leaving a good gap at the bottom and top of the paper. Try not to overfill your wrap or it could split.
Next you need to roll up the wrap by folding the edge closest to you over the ingredients. Then fold in both sides roll the parcel tightly. The rice paper will stick to itself sealing up the roll.
