Rice Paper Rolls. You’re Doing it Wrong.
Rice paper packages tied up with string...
I’ve read much about rice paper rolls recently and when I happened upon Nic’s (of Planning with Kids) Child friendly recipe the night before shopping I did a little research and made up a list of what we would need to try them out. I was excited and started dinner preparations with a positive spring in my step.
I was pretty sure we were about to discover a new family favourite.
Unfortunately, I am not the domestic goddess I imagine when I find something new to try. For some reason, this fact escapes me. Every time. And, somehow, I tend to believe what I am about to make is going to be spectacular.
In the end, I managed to fill the ‘rolls’ too much (again and again, apparently I was not paying much attention) and served up a meal of Rice Paper Packages with a side of wedges. I probably left the rice paper in the water too long as well. Just a few of my mistakes along the way, ending up with my whole family pulling lots of unimpressed faces at me as they tried the amazing dish I had placed in front of them.
No one was going to eat them. So, I told them to open them up, I’d made them all dinner presents …
Do you eat rice paper rolls? Do you make them? Do you have any tips for me or am I beyond help?
