Another thing I made for our room party at Imaginarium is spring rolls. They’re wrapped in rice paper and have rice noodles in them.
Look for a recipe. SO. MANY. But all of them I found had six things in common:
Basics for Spring Rolls
- spring roll wrappers (duh)
- rice noodles
I had a bunchabuncha veg, so, in addition to the noodles, lettuce, and herbs, I chopped up:
- spring onion
- yellow squash
- red peppers
Can’t remember now if I put in corn and/or mushrooms, but I wouldn’t be surprised. I wish I’d had some bean sprouts and/or water chestnuts but, alas, I did not. Salt and pepper, for sure.
I filled them too full, and they fell apart. Next time, I won’t be so generous!
They were a hit, even though they fell apart. As my grandpa would have said, “That don’t hurt the eatin’ of it.” Also: “Messy but nourishin’.”
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Something messy.

Make you some. I guess there’s a little carbs from the wrapper and the rice noodles, but the rest is pure veg.

I do like spring rolls.
