DIRECTIONS

Dip each piece of rice paper in water for 30 seconds, so that both sides are wet, shake off the excess, move it to a plate or cutting board while it’s still rigid, and let it rest until it finishes rehydrating. Add kale first, covering most of the rice paper except at the ends. Leave some room at the ends so you can roll it and it sticks. Start adding your veggies inside one by one. Don’t add too much or the bite will be too big. After you put the desired veggies in roll, lift the side of the rice paper that's closest to you, gently pull it forward (away from you) over the fillings. Hold the wrap firmly while you fold in each end of the wrap. Continue rolling to seal the seam. After it looks like a burrito, let it set for a bit. Continue to make the rest until you have made the entire batch of veggie rolls. Cut into bite size pieces so you can dip into hummus.

Fun fact about rice paper:

Did you know that Xuancheng is the place where rice paper originally came from? The name of the paper was mentioned in many historical accounts from as early as the 8th century. Like tortillas in Mexico, rice papers are the all-purpose food wrappers of Asia. They are made by combining finely ground rice, water, salt, and sometimes tapioca flour, then rolling out the mixture into paper-thin rounds and drying the rounds on bamboo mats in the sun. When dry the rounds look glassy and brittle, the crosshatch patterns from the bamboo showing through. When wet, they are translucent and pleasantly chewy.

Happy Dipping!
