Nurse Notes 

by Judy Worley

Rice Paper Rolls 

Rice paper

Your veggies (and fruit) of choice – I used purple cabbage, spinach, carrot, avocado and mango
Fresh herbs – mint leaves, cilantro etc.
Soy sauce and sweet chili sauce for dipping
Peanut butter sauce – see the recipe below


Peanut butter sauce
3 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
The juice from 1/2 lime
1/2 tablespoon pure maple sirup
A little boiling water to mix it with

Simply add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix them well together – add a little water at a time until you have your desired consistency.


  1. Start by washing and prepping the fruit and veggies – you can either slice, grate or chop them, whatever you prefer.
  2. Fill a pan with warm water and carefully dip a sheet of rice paper in it for a couple of seconds until it has softened. Place the rice paper on a clean kitchen towel and add your fillings of choice in the middle, be careful not to add to much and not too close to the sides or it will be hard to close and roll.
  3. When you have added your fillings you fold the left and right side of the rice paper towards the middle to cover the fillings. Then you fold the end rice paper that are towards you over the middle and roll it until it is closed – try to roll it as tight as possible without breaking the rice paper. Repeat until you have made as many rice paper rolls as needed.
  4. Cut the rice paper rolls in half and serve them with soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, peanut butter sauce or whatever else kind of sauce or dipping you prefer – enjoy!
