Rice Paper Rolls

This quick and easy recipe is great as a lunch, snack or you could even make smaller rolls to use as a party snack, instead of fried spring rolls! You can also adjust the filling to whatever you prefer, and can leave out the meat for a vegetarian option. They're also great lunchbox fillers - just remember an airtight container or jar for the sauce so you don't have any spills.
