Vietnamese-Style Spring Rolls Method:
- Prep vegetables.
- Fill a pie plate or flat dish with a rim to fill half way with water.
- Dip rice wrap into water until wet all over.
- Place wet wrap onto a cutting board. Pour a thin layer and small amount of sweet and sour chili sauce in the center of the wrap.
- Next add avocado, and begin to layer prepared vegetables, greens, and sprouts in the center of the wrap.
- Fold the outer parts of wrap towards the center and then tightly tuck the ends of wrap over all the vegetables and roll the wrap tightly until edges are closed.
- NOTE: when making multiple rolls ahead of time, separate each one with parchment paper so they don’t stick together.
