Spring Roll Wraps

Spring Roll Wraps
by Jayne

3 raw small baby carrots
2 slices of English cucumber skin on
a few pieces pre-cooked carved Chicken Breasts (heated)
Brown rice or Asian noodles ( I buy Raman noodles and prepare half
a package without the powder – takes 3 mins OR reheat some of the rice I
keep in my freezer) any other veggies you like..
Fresh Cilantro or what you prefer

Makes approx 3 rolls.

Chop all ingreds and combine, at this point, I
just separate into three piles.
Prepare the rice papers according to
the video/instructions on package, and then roll your ingredients into
the wrapper.
I find it easier to place the wrapper on a china plate,
fill and roll it that way rather than using the damp dish towel
technique.

Dip into your preferred sauce and enjoy!
