Rice Paper Rolls or Fresh Spring Rolls are definitely healthier than the fried version. While fried spring rolls will always have a place in my heart, I love whipping up these rice paper rolls for a healthy snack or lunch. I use the same peanut sauce as my Thai Lettuce Wraps, and if you haven’t tried it yet, get on it! I ran out of rolls and finished eating the sauce with some raw veggies, it’s so good! The peanut sauce uses ginger, and I recently just found Ginger Paste at my local Trader Joe’s, and this made it so easy and blended perfectly with the peanut butter.
The trick with rolling Rice Paper Rolls is that you have to move quickly, or you’ll end up with a sticky blob. I made a short video here that shows how to dip the rice paper in water and make the roll. Once you dip the rice paper in water, make sure all the areas get water, then remove it. The wrapper will still feel ‘tough’, but once you place it on your board, it will soften.
The best part of these spring rolls, is that you can customize with any protein, vegetable, or even fruit! I’ve seen Rice Paper Rolls with Avocado, Fish, and even with sliced peaches. The combinations are truly endless! Whatever filling you decide to add, just be sure you don’t skip the peanut sauce!
These are the rice papers I used, if you can find them at an Asian market, they will be much cheaper. There are several different brands, so go with what your store has in stock. Happy rolling friends!

Peanut Sauce: See Notes
Prep all your fillings and have them ready on a cutting board before you start making the rolls.
Get a large bowl of water and warm it in the microwave for about a 1:30 seconds. The water should be warm but not super hot.
Dip rice paper wrapper into water and move around till all sides are wet. When you remove it from the water it should still be a little tough and will soften as you start rolling your wraps.
Place your fillings and fold the bottom over and make a tight wrap, then fold the sides and continue rolling up.
Rice Paper Rolls are best eaten immediately, however they can be stored in the fridge if wrapped individually in plastic wrap and placed in an airtight container.
