rice paper love!

My husband introduced these to me 20+ years ago and they have been a faithful on the table ever since!

I’d love to know how many of our children(let’s talk under 10) will sit down to a bowl of raw carrot, spinach, corn, avocado and snow peas…..I’m guessing not many and let me tell you, might children don’t either. However these rice paper rolls are a little bit of magic when it comes to getting the children to eat raw.

Seriously simple to throw together at any time & yes, more of a meal than a snack but since it’s so simple I knew you’d probably love them too! You don’t have to use all the vegetables listed below and it’s about using what you have in the fridge. The herbs I think are not negotiable and always have to be there however my little ones love no herbs so give them both a try.
