Only a day left until we say goodbye to 2014 and celebrate the start of a new year. Many of us celebrate this get together with friends and family. Considering the fact that most people stuffed themselves with tons of Christmas goodies (read: carbs), we thought it’s time for a healthy, vitamin fueled, low–carb, delightfully delicious snack! Tomorrow we’re posting a recap of some awesome snacks that we posted earlier this year, but it’s New Years Eve and we couldn’t resist to go for that one-of-a-kind snack. I know, I know, they don’t look very appealing (well, let’s be honest, they look like unsanitary male genitals..yuk), but you’ll just have to trust me when I say that these Rice Paper Spring Rolls are TO DIE FOR!
As Christmas turned out to be a roller-coaster ride of go-to’s and to-do’s (surprise, surprise) I ended up making these Rice Paper Spring Rolls together with some close friends at our post-Christmas dinner party. We had such a blast at the table! Just trying to figure out how to NOT break the rice paper and of course over-stuffing the rolls with Hoisin Sauce and fresh veggies…hilarious! So in case you’re staying in I highly recommend to set the table with all your favorite ingredients **, a bowl of lukewarm water and (a lot of!) rice paper.
Without further ado, I wish you all a spectacular New Years Eve!!! I can’t wait to keep posting my favorite recipes and foodilicious Dishtales from all our fellow earthlings in 2015!
** The ingredients we used for our recipe (scroll down!) are a combination of ingredients that Dishtales loves to stuff Rice Paper Spring Rolls with. Note that you can use whatever ingredients you like. We merely suggest these as part of our Dishales recipe 🙂
- Serving about 10 Rice Paper Spring Rolls
- 10 sheets of Rice paper (take more..just in case 🙂 )
- Hoisin Sauce
- 200 gr Smoked chicken
- 2 branches of Spring onion
- 1 Bell pepper
- 100 gr of julienne carrots
- a handful of fresh cilantro
- Chop all stuffing ingredients into julienne slices and grab a teaspoon to spread your Hoisin sauce.
- For best result, push the rice paper into a bowl of lukewarm water for about 10/15 seconds. Take it out (gently) and place the rice paper sheet on a clean kitchen towel. After about 20 seconds you can start stuffing your rice paper (whether on the same kitchen towel or on a chop board).
