Rice paper rolls

Large, wide bowl of water

1.  Soak one rice paper roll at a time in the water for approx. 60 seconds, or until soft yet still able to hold together when lifted.

2.  Lay on a wide plate that has been sprinkled with water.

3.  Layer raw vegetables in a row that stretches across the middle of the rice paper, leaving about 2-3 inches on either side.
