Rainbow Rice Wraps
Dairy, Egg, Gluten, Nut and Wheat Free.
Makes 4 wraps
- Half of a 14-ounce (390 g) package vermicelli rice noodles
- 1 tablespoon (15 mL) tamari, plus more for dipping
- 2 teaspoons (10 mL) olive oil
- 4 (each 8½ inches/21 cm long) rice paper wrappers
- ½ medium carrot, peeled and cut into matchsticks
- ½ sweet pepper (any colour), seeded and cut into matchsticks
- 2½ inches (6 cm) English cucumber, cut into matchsticks
- 4 ounces (115 g) tofu, cut into ½-inch (1 cm) square strips
- Handful of sunflower sprouts (optional)
- Cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain thoroughly and toss with the tamari and olive oil.
- Fill a shallow plate with water. Dip one sheet of rice paper into the water and let it soak until it starts to become bendable but still has structure, about 10 seconds. Transfer to a clean working surface (plastic cutting board or plate).
- Arrange the noodles, carrot, sweet pepper, cucumber, tofu, and sunflower sprouts across the centre of the rice paper. Begin rolling, tucking the sides in as you roll. Transfer the roll to a platter and repeat with the remaining 3 rice paper wrappers.
- Serve with tamari on the side for dipping.
TIP: Substitute the same amount of cooked chicken, smoked salmon, or cooked shrimp for the tofu.
These rice wraps are light and a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants, and protein.
